Energy and Water Conservation means hotels doing what they can to save energy and water in order to go green and help the environment.

3 Alternatives

1. In order to save water, some hotels change the water pressure and flow of the toilets, showers, and sinks in the guest bathrooms. This helps to reduce the amount of water being wasted a day.

2. Another way hotels are conserving energy and water is by reducing the amount of laundry being done each day. They encourage guest to reuse linens to save the water being need to clean the linens and energy used by the appliances to wash the linens.


3. Believe it or not, some hotels are removing swimming pools in a way to go green. Some hotels aren't going quite that extreme but some have installed push button showers in the pool area to conserve water.
