BAY GARDENS RESORTS ACHIEVE PLATINUM LEVEL GREENLEADERS STATUS FROM TRIPADVISOR
International travel review site TripAdvisor® awarded the Bay Gardens Hotel, Bay Gardens Inn and Bay Gardens Beach Resort and Spa platinum level status in its GreenLeaders™ programme in July.
The GreenLeaders programme was created in response to a significant increase in eco-conscious travellers around the world. The goal was to bring the efforts of ‘green’ properties to the forefront, making it easier for those travellers to make informed choices for vacation accommodation.
Executive Director of Bay Gardens Resorts, Sanovnik Destang, commented, “This further solidifies our St. Lucianowned company’s commitment to sustainable practices at every level of our organization. It comes on the heels of attaining the internationally recognized Green Globe certification for all three of our hotels back in October 2014.”
TripAdvisor GreenLeaders properties have met a set of environmental standards developed for TripAdvisor by a leading environmental consulting firm, with input from expert partners. The more green practices a hotel has in place, the higher its GreenLeader level which is shown on the property’s listing on the TripAdvisor site.
Travellers can now search for accommodations that have TripAdvisor GreenLeaders status on the TripAdvisor site, and view a detailed list of environmentally-friendly practices that they can expect at each location.
“TripAdvisor GreenLeaders are leading the hospitality industry in making efforts to improve their environmental footprint,” said Jenny Rushmore, director of responsible travel at TripAdvisor. “We greatly applaud these hotels and B&Bs, and are pleased to share their eco-friendly practices with our online community of more than 260 million travellers who visit the site each month.”
The TripAdvisor GreenLeaders programme was developed in consultation with the United Nations Environment Programme, the U.S. Green Building Council, ENERGY STAR®, and the International Center for Responsible Tourism Canada, among other leading environmental organizations.
