green business


So you all know me pretty well by now...I try and 'do the right thing'. I eat local, seasonal, I public transport it, I take my stuff with me, I recycle, I consume few stuff and when i do i know its provenance, we solar power, passive solar, time showers, make stuff, eat basics, yaddah yaddah yaddah, so when it came to my work trip this time i had to DO something different, ( i know the jet fuel carbon costs) I chose a 'green' hotel. Small rooms, local menus, green powered, recycling facilities in the room, no takeaway toiletries in shameful bottles, minimal. Happy to make just a small difference and support a business with a conscience.

and it's a non-smoking hotel, will keep that in mind for when I finally get to go to Melbourne.
Have a safe trip.

Nice one Kel! Sounds like a great place to stay. I will have to check it out during one of my lunch time walks.

One of these days, when you are in Melbourne, we must catch up for a chin wag.

You mean to say these places ACTUALLY exist? Like for real not just talk?

Excellent - how to do I find out which places do any where in Australia so I can follow suit.

Brilliant!
