Ready, Set, Slash!

The American Hotel & Lodging Association has announced the "Energy Slasher Challenge" competition. The winners will be the small, medium, and large property with the greatest overall savings April 1, 2010 – April 1, 2011 compared to the previous year. And they are even giving away prizes.

Applause to AH&LA not only for issuing this challenge but also for making available a wonderful Green Resource page, a glossary and even a link to a green guru who can help to answer questions!

It is exciting to see associations like AH&LA (for hotels), IACC (for conference centers), GMIC (for meeting planners) creating friendly competition to initiate real change. Sustainability continues to move into the mainstream--not just because it is the "right thing to do" but because it makes good business sense. Everyone wins!
