5 Ways to Stay Eco-Friendly When Traveling
Stay at a Green Hotel
Luxury and environmental consciousness go hand-in-hand at the Orchard Hotel, one of San Francisco's first LEED-certified hotels. The building features low-emission paint and carpets made from partially recycled material. Housekeeping uses only non-toxic cleaning supplies and the bathrooms are stocked with organic products. Another environmental plus: the hotel, located two blocks from Union Square, is steps away from the Powell Street cable car line, so there's no need to rent some gas-guzzling car.
