Green Travel

green toiletriesThe travel industry is finally catching up with savvy consumers: more and more hotels and resorts are taking the plunge to “go green.” The latest entry is a group of hotels in Vermont who have joined together in a program called “Green Hotels in the Green Mountain State.” Participating hotels are using sound environmental management practices to reduce their impact on the environment and satisfy customer demand for environmentally conscious lodging establishments.

Here is a website that lists all participating green hotels in Vermont, and identifies the steps they have taken, from composting programs to the use of more recycled products. Most also have energy-saving laundry programs for guest towels, proving you can be clean and still be green.   I’m hoping that they will add non-toxic cleaning, personal care products, organic snacks and a choice of wi-fi free rooms to their list of green attributes!
