Florida Green Lodging Program Inducts New "Green" Hotels

rosen.jpg“But mom, I want to go to Disney World.” Let’s be honest, colorful plastic, sugary popsicles and larger than life attractions are pretty much the meat (and/or seitan) and potatoes for every child. Now, the great state of Florida (my home state) is making it a little bit easier for the eco-aware parent to make little Jimmy’s dream come true. As Ecorazzi reported earlier, Disney and Chevrolet recently partnered to help clean up the roads around the Florida theme parks, and now the Orlando hotel industry has followed their lead.

The Rosen Plaza Hotel, the Rosen Centre Hotel and a half a dozen other lodges have just been granted state certification for Florida’s Green Lodging Program. To be considered “green”, a hotel must adapt a variety of alternative practices, including low-flow plumbing fixtures, a linen-reuse program, the installation of Energy Star appliances and programmable thermostats.

The Rosen hotels are owned by Embassy Suites and they’ve just announced plans for each of their Florida hotels to eventually rock that handsome green seal of approval. Now, I’m not gonna take ALL the credit for this recent Floridian green trend, but it seems rather suspicious that right when I start writing for Ecorazzi my home state gets all eco-crazy. I’m just putting it out there. Florida, you owe me.
