Green Your Hotel Stay: Book at an Eco-Hotel
Tip #3: Have Green Reservations
Even if, during your hotel stay, you’re turning off lights, lowering the A/C, and letting the little soaps be, you may be doing harm simply by giving your business to a place that burns through energy, pollutes water, or produces tons of waste. To ensure that the property you’re giving money to is environmentally responsible, look for certification. If it’s LEED-certified (there are less than 100 LEED hotels in the U.S., though more are forthcoming), Energy Star-compliant, or sports the Green Seal, you can be surer that the hotel’s eco-commitment is real.
