Taking a vacation doesn’t have to mean taking a break from a green lifestyle. Swap your own green home for equally eco-friendly lodging. 

Many hotels use environmentally conscious practices. They’re no longer delivering newspapers to each room. They’re composting to get rid of waste. Some even use solar or hydro energy systems.

When researching hotels, be sure to ask questions. Some things to ask: 

• Does the hotel have a recycling program? 



• Will you have the option to reuse towels and sheets?
