Choose a Green Hotel this Summer

As the summer holidays are approaching, you may be wondering how you are going to spend it this year. Planning for a summer vacation trip? You may want to consider searching for an eco-friendly accommodation provider to add meaning to your vacation. In case you might be thinking, what is then, considered as a green hotel or resort?

Basically, they are accommodation providers that incorporate environmental friendly policies into their operations for better sustainability. Nowadays, the definition of being a supporter of sustainability has included contributing back to the society as well. Hotels that are located at an urban setting has also taken up the challenge of being eco-friendly, through simple measures like serving organic food and providing amenities in bulk instead of individual packaging. Such hotels busted past perceptions of green accommodation being just those which are located in the jungles and other natural settings.

Due to the rising number of hotels claiming to be “green”, travelers need to look out for official green certificates or labels, which are awarded by independent organizations. Greenty is one reliable website that helps you to do so, highlighting the green measures that each hotel is undertaking. Feel free to browse through our database of over 3,000 hotels that are rated subjectively by a team of green travel experts, through an assessment grid of 21 green criteria. Hopefully, you will be able to find one that meets your needs this summer.
