Full Description

What is a Green Hotel?

This is a question that perplexes many hospitality industry professionals. There is no single standard that is universally accepted. Common categories of environmental friendliness include:

•energy efficiency
•waste management
•water use efficiency
•the purchase of environmentally-friendly products
•toxic use reduction
•the education of guests and staff

At Boston Green Tourism, we give energy efficiency the most consideration, because the use of fossil fuel is most closely associated with the world’s greatest environmental problem, global warming. Others give more weight to waste management or indoor air quality.

Whatever a hotel’s strengths, how could it prove that it is environmentally-friendly? The clearest way is to become certified by an independent body. There are five certifications that Boston Green Tourism accepts:

•U.S. EPA Energy Star for Hospitality
•U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Program
•Green Key Eco-Rating Program
•Green Seal for Lodging Properties
•EcoRooms & EcoSuites

Google "Last Green Valley".

That's the part of Connecticut I lived in before moving to Boise. Airline pilots supposedly coined the phrase because it was the last stretch of dark terrain at night along the Atlantic seaboard between D.C. and the Boston metropolis. People there recognized that what they had was worth preserving, and they set up the Quinebaug and Shetucket Rivers Valley National Heritage Corridor to do so. It's brought in lots of tourist dollars; a study showed that every dollar spent on promoting tourism generated multiple dollars in economic benefits.
