At the Best Western PLUS Inn of Sedona we are putting our best foot forward to make our Sedona hotel more environmentally friendly! We are proud to be Bronze level GreenLeaders in the TripAdvisor Green Leaders program, which helps travelers plan greener trips by identifying environmentally-friendly accommodations across the U.S.
We have recycling bins on our property and utilize energy saving equipment. Our soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion in our guest rooms are in hygienic, sealed dispensers to avoid the landfill issues caused by individual amenity bottles. We have found biodegradable/compostable K-cups for our guest room Keurig Coffee Makers. And now guests of the Best Western Plus Inn of Sedona can charge their electric vehicles on sight! That’s right, we have taken the next step in creating a greener hotel and a better guest experience, we now have a Tesla charger and a EV-60 evCharger capable of charging any EV on the market today! There is no extra costs or hidden charges to our guests for use of the chargers, it’s complimentary for our EV guests.
TripAdvisor GreenLeaders have met a set of environmental standards developed for TripAdvisor by a leading environmental consulting firm, with input from expert partners. The more green practices a hotel has in place, the higher its GreenLeader level, which is shown on the property’s listing on the TripAdvisor site.
“We were very excited to be taking the steps to be more environmentally friendly” said General Manager Elizabeth McIntire, we live in a beautiful place and are always looking for ways to decrease our impact on our environment. Being a part of GreenLeaders is a great way to communicate that to our prospective guests.”
Travelers can now search for accommodations that have a GreenLeaders status on the TripAdvisor site, and view a detailed list of environmentally-friendly practices that they can expect at each location.
“TripAdvisor GreenLeaders are leading the hospitality industry in making efforts to improve their environmental footprint,” said Jenny Rushmore, director of responsible travel at TripAdvisor. “We greatly applaud these accommodations and are pleased to share their eco-friendly practices with our online audience of more than 200 million travelers.”
The TripAdvisor GreenLeaders program was developed in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® program, the U.S. Green Building Council, and the United Nations Environment Programme. For more information, please visit www.tripadvisor.com/GreenLeaders.
