Feb. 28, 2012 - PRLog -- Eco-Friendly Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites-Airport is now a 'StayGreen' Hotel

   Bloomington – The Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites-Airport on Empire Street has achieved an important designation that is good for the earth and good for business: It is now a StayGreen hotel.
   Launched by the Illinois Hotel & Lodging Association (IHLA) to recognize hotels that proactively use eco-friendly products and services to reduce their impact on the environment, StayGreen hotels must meet specific criteria for saving energy and recycling/waste minimization.  
   For environmentally-conscious visitors to Bloomington looking for a "green" hotel, they can now confidently StayGreen at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites. For the hotel itself, the property is reducing its carbon footprint and some costs associated with running the 126-room hotel and conference center.
   The Holiday inn Hotel & Suites-Airport is the 53rd Illinois hotel to meet IHLA's StayGreen standards. "The Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites joins an ever-expanding community of Illinois hotels that are committed to protecting the environment," said IHLA President and CEO Marc Gordon. "We commend them for their efforts, and envision a world in which green lodging is 'business as usual' sooner, rather than later."
   The Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites achieved StayGreen standards by installing100 percent environmentally-friendly, energy-efficient lighting throughout the entire property.  The hotel also implemented a linen reuse program which helps reduce both energy and water consumption.
   With a guest room generating as much as 30 pounds of waste per day, recycling is an important part of a hotel's environmental efforts. The Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites recycles newspapers, plastic and glass bottles, metal cans, cardboard and paper. Irvin expects that the hotel will be able to reduce guest room waste by as much as 70 percent with its StayGreen recycling program.
    “We are very proud of all of the steps we have taken to become more earth-friendly,” said Michelle Irvin, Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites General Manager. “From green energy to the in-room recycling program, we have really come a long way in the last few years.”
