No Stars: Help Improve the Hotel Rating Systems

Does luxury mean an organic mint on your pillow?
Ask for it!

Which would you rate higher: a hotel that uses green cleaning products, or a hotel that individually wraps 7 different bathroom products? The standard rating systems by AAA and Mobil give their stars for the overpackaged excess, but ignore the planet.

Our organization is joining the Green Event Guide's Campaign to Green the Hotel Stars System, and we'd like to encourage our members to join in.

Will you join many others in taking some very simple steps when you stay at hotels? Explore the campaign's tips to look for green hotels, ask your hotel to be greener, review hotels for their greening, or write the organizations that rate hotels and encourage them to meet your needs.


Don't hesitate to ask us for help -- if you like the html boxes and want to put them in your email, we may be able to give quick instructions.
