Passionate Advocates to Keep Collier Beautiful

Corporate social responsibility is a hot topic these days in the hotel and meetings world.  Hilton Naples and Shula's Steak House Naples have long been passionate advocates of protecting the precious and beautiful natural resources living in Naples offers.  It is what drives us to continue improving upon our earth friendly practices.
The Hilton Naples Hotel is part of The Florida Department of Environmental Protection Green Lodging Program and the Hilton Worldwide Lightstay Conservation program.  In fact, it was the first hotel in Naples to be designated int the Green Lodging Program back in 2008.
Our beaches in Naples are known for being clean and offering spectacular views.  Volunteers from our Hilton Naples and Shula's Steak House Naples teams came together for their quarterly clean up of our year long program to Adopt-a-Shore at Clams Pass Beach and do our part to help Keep Collier Beautiful.
You may have seen our fun-loving group decked out with orange safety vests, gloves, long-handled dip nets, long-handled litter “grabbers” and garbage bags. The mission is serious however our group knows how to keep it fun and efficient.
