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.

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! :)
