Jun 26th 2009 6:16PM It's too bad there weren't more visionairies such as Stanley Selengut, but it is good to see more and more people in all areas of concern focused on going "Green" and, of course, we should be particular to patronize "Green" accommodations whether traveling for business or holiday. Until a preponderance of facilities have been either constructed or converted, however, ascertaining which truly are "Green" - or just "greenwashed" - can be problematic!
A dedicated "Green" web site, http://www.istaygreen.org, is helping to make environmentally friendly lodging easy to find and book.
iStayGreen.org is currently the most frequented online booking site for "Green" lodging. Over 3,500 of the properties listed are environmentally friendly and have been awarded the Green Eco-Leaf
The eco initiatives of the property are clearly listed. Users are encouraged to contribute "Green" Reviews and environmentally rate the hotels they visit.
It's like Tripadvisor - Facebook - Travelocity all together in one site for the environmentally conscious traveler.
