Eco Friendly Hotels around the world

We all travel around the world and book hotels to stay. Before booking any hotel we check that how clean and well arranged the hotel rooms are. But in this era of climate change, it’s not only about staying in a hotel with usual comforts they are providing but also about environmental sustainability. This means that we need to know whether there are any energy-saving measures taken place by the hotel staff, do they follow water-saving practices or are there waste disposal and recycling systems in place.

Well, there are some eco friendly hotels around the world which are taking steps to improve their green credentials and going carbon-neutral in an effort to cause the least possible damage to the environment.

Here’s the list
