Green Flagstaff Hotel Tips
1. Keep room staff away using the "Do Not Disturb" sign.
Daily housekeeping is not commonly needed so let housekeeping know. A lot of resources are required when a Flagstaff hotel suite is cleaned. Linens are cleaned requiring water, detergent, electricity, and gas. Solvents are used to clean the bathroom sink area, tub and toilets. Vacuuming the carpet uses electric power. Why have the sample sized bottle of shampoo, conditioner, and lotion replaced when they're only partially used? Do your part to preserve your environment by asking yourself "Does my suite truly need cleaning daily?"
2. Plan your stay in a "Green" hotel, motel, resort, or bed & breakfast.
Choosing a low-impact property is not simply greener, you'll find it often cheaper. There are several organizations that grade the environmental initiatives in-place at lodging properties. In the U.S. numerous cities and states have created certification guidelines. The same holds true internationally with allot of countries enabling certification ratings. Research your destination and find out if there is a country or state program for "Green" lodging. You will also find numerous first-rate online listings of eco friendly lodging.

3. How essential is your trip?
You'll find several various internet meeting solutions that allow video conference and you the ability to share and edit documents with both presenters and delegates. These alternatives are so good that you can do business from your office instead of traveling. When personal meetings to Flagstaff are needed, then certainly you'll need to travel. However, if every business could switch some flights with an internet meeting things would start looking up for our shared environment.
4. Get some brisk air & exercise, walk or bike instead of renting.
Driving rental car in dense downtown areas is typically a inferior alternative to public transportation. To make the larger metro areas more pedestrian friendly most have developed a good quality grid of light rail, elevated rail, shuttle, bus, train, trolley, subway and taxi services. When downtown parking can be $25 a day and more on top of the cost of the rental, plus add valet tips and public transportation becomes a pretty nice alternate. When staying at one of the downtown Flagstaff hotels you most probably will find what you require within walking distance. If the distance isn't too great give a cycle a shot and get a little workout. Try one of the alternatives above and be a better eco-citizen.
