Hotel Sustainability – Top 3 Tips on Where to Begin

Great Forest has worked with many hotels across the country.  Here, in brief, are our top three suggestions for hotels deciding to go green:

  1. Begin with increasing recycling and reducing waste because it is easy, has an immediate impact, and may lower costs by 40% to 60%.
  2. Investigate the chemicals you are using on-site and switch to greener alternatives to reduce chemical runoff in your water and in the building.
  3. Install energy and water saving devices because it is one of the most effective ways to reduce your carbon footprint and save money.
