In Nairobi, attempts are being made to encourage domestic tourists to visit national parks and reserves by building eco-lodges. It seems like Kenyans are reluctant to travel due to high accommodation costs. KWS, the agency that manages most of Kenya’s parks and reserves, aims to make the lodgings affordable and green, with the hope that locals will come and visit. For more information, read the article “KWS builds eco-lodges to woo locals“.
We just love B&Bs here at Green Unlimited, so every now and then, we’ll be posting about some eco-friendly B&Bs around the U.S. and around the world as well. If you know of a great B&B you think we should know about or you own an eco-friendly B&B, we would love it if you could write to us!
A charming new bed-and-breakfast recently opened in Ridgefield, Connecticut. Green Rocks Inn prides itself on its use of organic materials, organic food made from locally available ingredients, and recycling program. It looks like a very charming place, and it also has its eco-friendliness going for it!
I stayed at a Marriott hotel this past weekend. I was disappointed that they didn’t have recycling there. They replaced the opened soap and changed all the towels even though we left them hanging. I found Bill Marriott’s blog. Hopefully they will start implementing recycling at all their hotels.
