Eco Vacations

Ecotourism: It's so easy being green

Being green is your way of life -- even on vacation. Whether you're seeking green-topia in New Zealand or the wildflower-filled acres of Colorado, Orbitz is your destination for planning your next ecotourism outing. We're committed to raising environmental awareness and supporting our eco travelers.

How can you make it easier to be a green traveler? Find hotels that earned the EPA's ENERGY STAR®, and rent a hybrid car -- some eco-friendly hotels even offer free parking for hybrids. Or, offset your flight carbon emissions through our partner Carbonfund.org. Think green when you plan your next trip, and make every day of your journey an Earth Day.

Eco friendly Hotels on Orbitz

  • When it comes to green travel smarts, consider booking an eco-friendly hotel. From solar powered energy to water-saving devices, hotels across the globe are doing their part to be environmentally sound and support ecotourism. Many properties use natural energy sources, embrace sustainable tourism practices, or purchase only environmentally-friendly products, such as green detergents for linens and soaps.

    The Orbitz staff and its global team of hotel market managers have started the process of researching hotels with eco-friendly policies. Each property must complete at least one of the following:

    Use a natural source of energy (i.e. wind, water, solar, bio-fuel)

    Support an environmental organization with each hotel reservation

    Use environmentally-friendly and safe products (i.e. detergents for linens, soaps, shampoos, etc.)

    Use energy conserving devices (i.e. eco-friendly light fixtures/bulbs triggered by motion detectors, water-saving devices, water filtration systems and air filtration/purifiers)

    Earned the ENERGY STAR®.
    Orbitz is proud to recognize ENERGY STAR hotels, showing that they're among the top 25% facilities in the country for energy performance. Learn more about the ENERGY STAR program. Hotels interested in learning how to track energy performance and the related carbon emissions should visit ENERGY STAR's easy-to-use Portfolio Manager tool at https://www.energystar.gov/istar/pmpam/.

    Achieved LEED® Certification
    Orbitz is proud to recognize LEED hotels. These properties are verified by the U.S. Green Building Council ensuring a facility is built or operated for improved environmental performance, including water and energy efficiency, sustainable purchasing and waste management, reduced pollution, and healthier indoor air quality. Hotels interested in pursuing LEED certification should visit www.usgbc.org/leed or www.usgbc.org/hospitality.
