When was the last time you stayed at a sustainable hotel or resort? What about the last time you held or attended a meeting at an eco-friendly venue?
Sometimes it can be hard to tell whether a hotel, inn or other venue is making efforts to be more sustainable. For example, the facility may be enrolled in a program to reduce electricity use during peak times, without it even being noticeable. LED lighting in public spaces may also be hard to detect.
Watch the video below to find out how one leading hotel and resort brand has reduced its environmental impact to the equivalent of taking more than 800,000 cars off the road annually!
As mentioned in the video, special thermostats were installed in the guest rooms of the Hilton Northbrook, Hilton Lisle/Naperville and DoubleTree Alsip, so that’s one easy way to tell. The next time you travel for work or leisure, let us know if you notice whether your destination is making strides to go green or be more sustainable like the Hilton family brand hotels, featured here!
Remember, you don’t have to leave the house to go “green.” One way for residents in Connecticut (served by CLP and UIC), Illinois (served by ComEd), Maryland (served by BGE, DPL, PE, Pepco), and Pennsylvania (served by MetEd, PenElec, PennPower, PPL, West Penn Power) to help the environment is to look into whether 100% renewable energy would be a viable option here: https://www.constellation.com/.

Smart homes give homeowners control over everything from energy use to home security, but transitioning to an entirely automated home can be a little overwhelming. If you don’t already have a smart-home hub, smart plugs might be the perfect compromise.
From lighting up your home to transforming your front yard, decorative lights are a popular way to brighten any home during the holidays. While traditional string lights and decorative lights are a staple in many homes, they can use significant amounts of energy.
Knowing how to maintain your ideal home humidity is important for both your health and your living space. Too much humidity in your house can result in mold, wood rot and aggravated allergy and asthma symptoms.
