Sustainable Solutions for Green Hotels

Look no more! The web-page ‘Global Stewards’ offer a comprehensive list of 35 sustainable practices that hotels can implement.

Some of these practices are:
• Install low-flow showerheads and sink aerators.
• Switch to low-flow toilets or install toilet-tank fill diverters.
• Install window film to lower heating and cooling loads and reduce glare in guestrooms.
• Provide guestroom recycler baskets for newspaper, white paper, glass, aluminum, cardboard, and plastic.
• Buy organic, fair trade, cruelty-free guest amenity products whenever possible
• If the hotel has a pool and/or hot tub, install a solar water heating system and use pool and hot tub covers when the pool area is closed.
• Provide your guests with bicycles, walking maps, and information on public transportation.
• Provide reusable items such as cloth napkins, glass cups, ceramic dishes, etc. with all food and beverage services.
• Donate leftover food to a local nonprofit organization and/or use a compost bin.
• If your hotel has a gift shop, consider purchasing fair trade products.
