TripAdvisor is “Rolling out the green carpet”

Recently, TripAdvisor hosted a free webinar to educate people on their new GreenLeaders program.   TripAdvisor created this program for two main purposes: to help lodging properties get recognized for their environmentally sustainable efforts and to make it easier for travelers to plan and book green trips. There is currently a big movement in environmental practices in hotels but unfortunately over 75% of hotels don’t communicate their green practices to guests outside their hotel premises.

The GreenLeaders program was launched on April 22, 2013, which was also Earth Day.  The program highlights hotels and B&Bs with green practices by determining their “GreenLeader level” and then advertising that directly on their TripAdvisor listing.  GreenLeader levels include bronze, silver, gold and platinum.  Each level requires different elements of green practices and a hotel or B&B can list all of their green practices for travelers to view.  A traveler can also search on the TripAdvisor website specifically for green hotels and B&Bs and hotels with specific green practices.
