At TripAdvisor, we feel strongly about making it easier for travelers like you to find environmentally friendly hotels without sacrificing comfort. That’s why we launched our TripAdvisor GreenLeaders program, which highlights hotels and B&Bs engaging in green practices.
Since launching the program last April, we have awarded more than 3,700 U.S. hotels and B&Bs with the TripAdvisor GreenLeader status (including five of the top 10 hotels in this year’s Travelers’ Choice Awards).
Today, we’re excited to extend TripAdvisor GreenLeaders to Canada and Europe. Starting today, hotels and B&Bs in 19 countries, including Canada, the U.K., Ireland, Germany, France, Italy and Spain, can apply for TripAdvisor GreenLeaders status. Eligible U.S. businesses can apply now at no cost by visiting http://green.tripadvisor.com; hotels in Canada can apply here, and hotels in the U.K. can apply here.
We will begin displaying hotels’ GreenLeaders status to travelers in Canada and Europe later this year. In the meantime, if you have a favorite green hotel in any of these countries, please encourage them to apply to the program.
Making sustainable choices while traveling can be a win-win-win that’s good for the environment, travelers and hospitality businesses. We’re excited to play a part in helping make those connections.
