Local Quality Inn and Suites on Jekyll Island, GA Recognized for “Green” Practices
Jekyll Island, GA (May 19, 2009) – The Quality Inn and Suites hotel of Jekyll Island, GA is pleased to announce that it was recently recognized as a hotel that “supports green practices” by its franchisor, Choice Hotels International. The Quality Inn and Suites hotel has successfully completed and fulfilled the basic requirements of the company’s “Room to be Green” program, an optional program that allows properties to be recognized for their fulfillment of specific “Green Initiative” requirements.
“We’re very excited to be able to let guests know that we are making efforts to be environmentally conscious,” said Linda Keel, general manager of the Quality Inn and Suites hotel. “We are always working to provide the things that travelers are looking for in their hotels today and by adopting these new ‘green’ practices, we hope to set ourselves apart from the competition.”
As a participant of Choice Hotels International’s “Room to be Green” program, the Quality Inn and Suites hotel has adopted green practices in the program’s core addressable areas of energy conservation, water conservation, and recycling and waste management. In addition the Quality Inn and Suites hotel uses only biodegradable chemicals, lower water usage showerheads, and donates all old linens, blankets and pillows to the Red Cross or the Humane Society.
Some of the hotel’s new practices that it has already put into place include:
• Energy efficient lighting such as compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs and LED signs.
• A towel and/or linen re-use program, giving guests the option to keep their linens throughout the course of their stay.
• Recycling receptacles for staff and guest use.
And for these efforts, the hotel has received a designation as a hotel that “Supports Green Practices” – a distinction that some travelers may value when choosing where to stay.
