LEED goes on vacation

Published on Written by Posted in LEED

School is out and summer is in full swing, and we want to know—what are your vacation plans? 

Now that LEED has a footprint in most beloved vacation destinations, it’s easier than ever to make more sustainable travel choices.

According to a recent TripAdvisor® survey, nearly two-thirds of travelers reported plans to make more environmentally minded choices over the next year. And while on vacation, 88% of travelers reported turning off lights when not in their hotel room, 78% participated in hotel's linen and towel re-use program, and 58% used recycling in the hotel.

Making memorable vacation plans while leaving a minimal footprint is what the TripAdvisor GreenLeaders Program is all about. The program now has over 1,900 properties in the United States, all available on TripAdvisor. 

Are you planning on vacationing green building style? Share your vacation plans in the comments.

Those visitng Sri Lanka / South Asia should certainly try The Kandalama Hotel, (LEED Bronze-2000) – A hotel that doesn’t sit on the landscape but is part of it! :)
