The lodging industry is the second largest employer in the nation. On average, hotels purchase more products each week than 100 families purchase in a whole year. Every item purchased has an environmental impact on guests, employees and the Earth. That is why it is important for hotels, motels, vacation rentals and bed-and-breakfasts to incorporate environmentally sound principles in their everyday business practices. Developing a sustainability program can significantly reduce the cost for utilities, which can, in turn, help to increase profits.
