The green revolution is taking the world by storm and we are all getting swathed in it. Most of us are now getting conscious of the environment and shifting to an eco-friendly lifestyle. While we may practise eco-friendly manners in our home or in our office, we forget all about it once we go out of town. Be it for business or pleasure- we are taking trips to various places all the time. Once we reach our destination we generally stay in hotels and resorts in the area.
Most of us spend lots of money booking expensive resorts and villas to ensure a comfortable stay. Some of us do extensive research on hotels to find out if they have proper conditions that match our standards, but what about whether the hotels are eco-friendly or not? Isn’t that also an important criterion for judging any good hotel? if you are an eco-conscious individual, checking whether the hotel is eco-friendly should be first on your list.

While eco hotels adhere to strict codes of eco-friendly conduct, there are some other hotels that have incorporated eco-friendly practices in their functioning even if they are not 100% ecological.

Many hotel owners are now turning their hotel eco-friendly- maybe not completely, but at least in some aspects.
