Colleen Ingram, a member of Sustainable Pacific Grove steering committee, was the recipient of a certificate of recognition awarded by the Monterey County Hospitality Association.  Colleen was recognized for her work to bring sustainability practices at Bernardus Lodge and Spa such as promoting recycling, repurposing items like shipping packages into storage containers and raising awareness about the plastic pollution.  Thanks to Colleen’s efforts, Bernardus has become a No Plastic Straws venue.  Congratulations Colleen!  You are an inspiration and model to follow.
