What is a GREEN Hotel?
 “Green” hotels are environmentally friendly properties
 that take the initiative and implement very important
 practices and programs to reduce energy, water, and
 waste. Green Hotels are participating in recycling
 programs, linen changing programs, installing energy
 efficient lighting, and getting their message out to
 their guests and how they are doing their part in
 protecting the planet.
       Why Should Hotels Be Green?

- Being green goes directly to your bottom line.
- Being green goes directly to your front doors which open wide
  to bring guests back again and again.
- Being green goes directly to keeping staff long- term because
  management clearly cares for their health and well-being.
