EPA Encourages Green Travel by Checking into an Energy Star Hotel
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Washington, D.C., is encouraging people to travel green this summer. Choosing hotels that have earned EPA’s Energy Star is a great place to start. Energy Star labeled hotels are independently verified to meet strict energy efficiency performance levels set by EPA. Hotels that have earned the Energy Star perform in the top 25 percent of hotels nationwide, use at least 35 percent less energy and emit at least 35 percent less greenhouse gas emissions than their peers—making an environmentally friendly lodging choice a snap.
