Looking for ways to be environmentally friendly? Businesses including rental units, craft breweries and restaurants are going green, investing in sustainable business practices and making energy efficient updates.Boutique hotels are differentiating from the competition with green initiatives. Great reasons to go green include saving money and the saving the environment, but eco friendly trends can also increase customers, lure in guests and contribute to employee enthusiasm.
Sustainable trends are moving beyond rain barrels, solar panels and updated HVAC. What about a rental community geared toward sustainable living? Getting your renters to buy in to energy saving methods and a community garden requires planning and education, but once tenants are on board they will feel a greater sense of community! Another way to be environmentally friendly is through sustainable brewing. Breweries have been looking to go green since the 1980’s. Restaurants are also looking at ways to reduce their food waste, and hotels want to be more efficient with water usage and other energy costs.
