Here at The Refinishing Touch, we are constantly monitoring the latest sustainability efforts and updates from the hospitality industry, especially with the recent post-recession comeback the sector has made.
As providers of on-site, sustainable furniture asset management services, we have refinished, reupholstered, and refurbished furniture in some of the most popular hotel chains. Our hospitality clients include the Hilton brand family, InterContinental Hotels Group, Wyndham Worldwide, Starwood, and many others.
Whether through our services or other innovative sustainable initiatives, hoteliers are finding new ways to implement environmentally-friendly policies and satisfy green consumers’ requests. A recent study conducted by the University of New Hampshire analyzed the common behaviors of 563 US hotel guests, and here’s what the results found:
– Sustainable lodgers will look for hard evidence of a hotel’s commitment to the environment, like offering a dinner menu with food supplied by local farmers
– Green consumers tend to be more concerned for others and have a higher desire to work for the good of society
– Environmentally-conscious guests place high value on courteous social behavior
