Green sustainable hotels in Kent are on the rise, and not before time. People in today's more enlightened age are increasingly aware of the importance of protecting the planet, and it's important for them to limit their carbon footprint as much as they can, especially on holiday. They may have measures in place at home, but their choice of suitable green hotels has until now been somewhat limited. However, a little research will reveal that Kent now has a great selection of green sustainable hotels spread right across the county, which is good news for us and also for the planet.
Kent Green Hotels
In locations such as Canterbury, Dover, Henley-on-Thames and even around the Romney Marsh area you'll find a good choice of green sustainable hotels all over Kent these days. These conscientious businesses take their environmental credentials seriously and aim to make money as businesses of course, but also to minimise their carbon footprint as much as they can. To that end they may go as far as to purchase neighbouring woodland to manage it more effectively, or more commonly to plant your trees in the immediate vicinity in the quest for the Holy Grail of CO2 neutrality!
Sustainable Facilities at Kent Green Hotels
There is a wide choice of green sustainable hotels in Kent, to suit every taste and budget. They tend to be relatively smaller establishments, which allows them to implement their innovative green planning strategies in a more systematic and controlled manner than if they had a large number of guests to deal with. These strategies include everything from managing local woodland areas to using rainwater drain-off for flushing the toilets, using recycled toilet paper and organic bed linen. Many green hotels in Kent use mattresses in guestrooms filled not with manmade fibres but with natural rubber, horsehair or cocoa fibres.
A green sustainable Kent hotel such as the Hilton Dartford Bridge in Dartford and the Palace Farm Hostel and Campsite in Sittingbourne will enable you to have a great time during your break, and also a clearer conscience about your carbon footprint.
