The Hampton Inn of Lincoln
announced Monday that it has been accepted as a Bronze level
GreenLeader in the new TripAdvisor GreenLeaders program, which helps
travelers plan greener trips by identifying environmentally friendly
accommodations across the U.S.
TripAdvisor GreenLeaders have met a set of environmental standards
developed for TripAdvisor by a leading environmental consulting
firm, with input from expert partners. The more green practices a
hotel has in place, the higher its GreenLeader level, which is shown
on the property's listing on the TripAdvisor website.
Inn - Lincoln features environmentally friendly services and many
eco-friendly policies, along with the style and sophistication our
guests have come to expect from us," said Damon Priddy, general
manager at the Hampton.
"An example of our commitment to conservation is our linen and
towel reuse program, saving nearly 81,000 gallons of water
annually," Piddy said. This program allows guests staying multiple
nights to reuse their linens if they wish.
Priddy said the hotel also uses monthly incentives for employees
to conserve electricity; there is recycling throughout the hotel;
and the hotel participates in the Hilton LightStay program.
LightStay is Hilton's corporate program that has saved nearly $74
million in utility costs.
