Is your hotel or other business in need of tips for going green? There are several small steps a hotel can take to be sustainable, both for the energy savings and the marketing angle. Customers love to see a business making an effort to invest in the environment, and it’s an easy way to distinguish from the competition when new hotels come to town!
One way hotels can save on water and water bills is with a linen reuse program. Put up signs in your guest rooms asking people to indicate whether or not they want their towels and linens washed each day or just when they are dirty. Installing low-flow toilets, sinks and shower heads is another great way to save water – but it does take a larger up-front investment.
When your hotel or business decides to make the leap into greater sustainability, it’s important to communicate these changes to your staff and make sure everyone is on board!
