Eco Friendly Hotels

Thanks to green initiatives all over the country, more eco-friendly hotels and motels are popping up in just about every state. These environmentally friendly lodging choices are sometimes brand-new facilities, built from the ground up with environmental initiatives in mind. Other times, they are older hotels and motels that have been renovated to comply with new environmental standards.

What Are Eco-Friendly Hotels Like?

Eco-friendly hotels employ conservation practices to reduce their overall impact on the environment. This means that they conserve energy by using energy-efficient appliances and lighting sources. You might see gardeners at eco-friendly hotels and motels raking leaves rather than using energy-demanding leaf blowers.

Water conservation is another big goal of eco-friendly hotels. Sinks, showers, baths and toilets are equipped with the latest water-saving fixtures, ensuring that less water is wasted on a daily basis. Environmentally friendly hotels will also encourage guests to use towels and sheets more than once before requesting they are laundered.
