Hotels are increasingly looking for ways to go green. One program is TravelGreen, where hoteliers support climate friendly travel through the sale of small amounts of clean renewable energy.
It means no upfront costs for hotel owners as it is the hotel guests who can make positive environmental impacts during their stay and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
Hotel owners can participate in the TravelGreen program by providing participating guests with TravelGreen Mini-Green Tags for $1.00 retail, which is equal to offsetting 33.7 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions, represents 29.3 kilowatt-hours of electricity supplied by new wind and solar power, and equates to 100% of the energy consumption related to one night’s hotel stay.
It is up to the hotel owners if they want to become carbon neutral and offset the greenhouse gas emissions associated with their operations through the purchase of Mini-Green Tags at wholesale rates. Find out more at www.travel-green.org.
