Until recently, a sustainable hotel was one that asked you to help them to save water by not having your towels or sheets washed daily. (And let’s be honest, most places did it to save the money on water and electricity, not the planet.)
So if you wanted to “go green” you were likely camping under the stars and bathing in the river, which is just lovely. But when I’m on vacation, I want to be on vacation. I want to lounge around in a plushy robe and drink champagne and eat delicious, local foods. Is it too much to ask that the hotel also respect the land where it is located?
Thankfully, not anymore.
