President and COO George Markantonis grabbed a shovel and joined team members to plant a tree on site, as part of a property-wide initiative to keep The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo as a green-friendly resort.

Even the special Sands Eco 360 and The Venetian and The Palazzo t-shirts worn by team members are earth friendly. “They are made from recycled soda bottles. These shirts are made from plastic bottles and that is where they get the green color,” said Pete Boyd, Senior Vice President of Operations.
