According to a survey by Forbes Magazine, 62 percent of travelers either always or often consider the environment when choosing a hotel, transportation, or restaurant. The survey also shows that 69 percent say they plan to make even more eco-friendly choices in the next 12 months.

The majority of respondents agreed that hotels could do a better job of publicizing their green initiatives. In fact, most revealed that they rarely or never felt informed about whether hotels are truly eco-friendly. We’d like to believe that hotels practice environmental sustainability for the sake of our environment, but with more heads in beds, who could argue with this survey?

There is a rare opportunity, of which most hotels aren’t taking advantage, to use sustainability reporting metrics as green marketing. In fact, Trip Advisor launched a rating service called Green Leaders in 2013 in partnership with Energy Star, the US Green Building Council, and the United Nations Environment Program, to recognize hotels based on environmental practices. Air Cycle partner Renaissance Arlington Capital View, is a 2015 Green Leader, LEED certified hotel, and received the Virginia Green Travel Star Award for Green Hotel of the Year.

With Air Cycle’s suite of simple sustainable solutions, it’s easy to report your sustainability metrics by using the Bulb Eater 3 lamp crushing system, EasyPak mail-in recycling program, Bulk Recycling Services, or EnviroPure food waste disposal system.
