Hotels That Go Green Help the Environment

With the economy still in a lull and there are no signs that there will be a change any time soon, it's been noticeable that the hotel business has not been growing because of it. Some hotels are finding it tough to keep their heads above water. There are some though that are beginning to stand out from the rest of the crowd and those are the hotels that are “going green”. A lot of hotels have been slow to jump on the environmental wagon but some now are doing it because they are basically being forced to do so in order to get the consumer to come and spend their money there. Here are some things that a lot of hotels are now starting to do.

A lot of hotels now are saving on their electric bills and helping the environment by replacing all of their light bulbs room by room. They are taking out the incandescent bulbs and replacing them with the compact fluorescent ones instead and some are even using the ones that have light emitting diodes that don't even use the mercury. A lot of these hotels are also putting in timers for the lights to avoid using them during the day when their guest are out of their rooms. Some hotels are also putting in power strips in their rooms instead of single wall outlets, this too helps to cut back on using excessive electricity. There are even some hotels that have installed solar panel roofs for their entire buildings.

Plastics are being replaced now in bathroom trash cans and room trash cans with paper and they are now replacing their traditional bed linens, towels, soaps and shampoos with all natural and organic materials. They are also asking that guests don't use more towels than are needed so as to conserve and they may not even change the sheets on the beds unless the guests ask them to. They will leave the guests a note asking them if they want the beds changed now before just doing it.

Some hotels are now installing computer run air conditioning systems to allow their guests to better regulate the room temperatures. These systems are also on timers and will turn off 45 minutes after their guests have arrived. This saves energy especially if they are visiting during the time of year when air conditioning might not be an issue for the guests.

The heating systems in some hotels now are running on the same kind of computerized system as the air conditioners and they too have been on timers and the heating can be regulated better according to the appropriate temperature and can be programmed to sense when extra heat is required in the room.
