Sleep Green

It is exciting to see the hotel industry jumping on the green bandwagon! Green meetings clearly have gone from a "trend" to a "market" for the hotel industry. Here are some valuable resources and information:

Green Lodging News is a great resource for planners and hoteliers

Article about London hotels signing up to be green

The American Hotel & Lodging Association has some new information on green practices

Green Seal’s Lodging Certification Program website

Energy Star’s Hospitality Program information:

On a personal note: I had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Carlton in San Francisco several weeks ago. It is very green, global and wonderfully nourishing. From check-in where they ask if you would like $1 from your room rate donated to a battered women’s shelter …to my room where a beautiful glass pitcher with filtered water replaced those expensive plastic water bottles!
