Eco-tourism meets Motel 6
Sigh. Christine gets to write about Center Parcs hidden among the trees and we get to write about Motel 6. It is a challenge to put a roadside drive-n motel in the eco-travel category but behind that tacky awning is Accor's impressive "Earth Guest" initiative that includes:
-a 65 point environmental checklist for employees; -organic food in the hotel restaurants with 10% of sales donated to second harvest;-employee mini organic herb gardens;-battery and fluorescent bulb recycling;-ozone machines on washers to wash linens in cold water;-use of Ecolab cleaning products;-energy and water management programs;-elimination of all incandescent bulbs.
