Kudos to TripAdvisor

Kudos to TripAdvisor, one of my favorite lodging resources.

They will launch a voluntary GreenLeaders program soon on their website to help properties that have comprehensive recycling, solar panels, electric car charging stations, composting and more get the recognition they deserve and to make it easier for travelers to plan and book green trips.

TripAdvisor collaborated with the EPA's ENERGY STAR program, the UN Environment Programme, the U.S. Green Building Council, and other sustainability experts to create this program that awards points by weighing them according to the environmental importance of the green practice, and the scale of that practice’s impact.
