  • Using concentrated, natural soaps and other green cleaning products
  • Offering biodegradable plastic and paper food containers for take-out food and drink
  • Using non-VOC paints and responsible building materials
  • Offering in-room refrigerators only upon request to save energy when rooms are unoccupied
  • Reducing heating and air conditioning system use when rooms are unoccupied
  • Utilizing native low-water landscaping
