Saving water, energy and reducing solid waste is great for the environment! Many of us recycle our plastic drinking bottles, paper products and etc... Some people are using solar panels and windmills to generate electrical power. Home product manufacturers are designing environmentally friendly products for our homes. So, why not vacation in a "Green Hotel" this summer?
The management of "Green Hotels" are interested in environmental issues. To keep laundry down, "Green Hotels" offer racks to hang towels, sheet changing during a stay at visitor's request and drinking water served at on-premise restaurants upon request. These hotels purchase toilet-tank fill diverters to reduce water usage. Many of the hotels have placed attractive recycling bins in each guestroom.
Nice permanent shampoo and lotion dispensers are chosen over the trial size alternatives. The designers of the guestrooms choose environmentally friendly paints, flooring products and other "green" selections. A benefit of the "Green Hotels" is the positive effect for many allergy prone guests. Many guests are able to sleep better and may receive temporary health benefits from the green environment.
