New York Green Hotels

New York City is one of the most visited destinations on the planet. With so much to see and do in the city, it’s no surprise that visitors flock to the bright lights all year. When you visit New York City or New York State, you don’t have to leave your environmental principles behind; there are plenty of New York green hotels where you stay.

How New York Green Hotels Are Different

In an effort to further environmental causes, New York State created a green certification program. This program certifies hotels as “green” hotels, giving them the program’s Green Seal of approval, thereby certifying that they adhere to certain environmental practices. Thanks to the program, more and more eco-friendly hotels are popping up all over the state.

New York green hotels often feature in-room recycling bins, allowing guests to easily recycle plastic, glass and aluminum products. These bins serve to greatly reduce the waste of the hotel. NYC green hotels also regularly feature organic, eco-friendly products in their bathrooms. You can feel good about the lotion, shampoo, condition and toothpaste you use when you know it is free of harmful additives.
