Green Lodging Certification for Baymont Inn & Suites - Facility Earns Partner Certification
April 26, 2010 – Baymont Inn & Suites, located in Mackinaw City, has earned Green Lodging Michigan (GLM) Partner certification from the Michigan Department of Energy, Labor & Economic Growth (DELEG).
Green Lodging Michigan encourages hotels, resorts, motels, and bed & breakfast facilities to implement environmental initiatives and cost-saving “green” practices to conserve energy, reduce water consumption, protect air quality, reduce waste, and participate in environmentally preferred purchasing.
"This accreditation is the mark of environmental responsibility of hoteliers who are committed to ‘green’ business practices that make environmental and economic goals their top priority,” said DELEG Director Stanley “Skip” Pruss. “Green Lodging Michigan is also helping to ensure the viability of our lodging facilities and the thousands of jobs related to Michigan’s hospitality industry."
The Baymont Inn & Suites in Mackinaw City has implemented several environmental initiatives at their facility. They have a linen and towel reuse program as well as low flow fixtures to conserve water. They reduce waste by recycling newspaper, plastic, aluminum, cardboard, office paper, batteries, and other materials. Baymont Inn & Suites has also installed Energy Star lighting to improve energy efficiency.
“We’re excited to be certified at the Partner level and will continue our work toward achieving the Steward level,” said General Managr Greg Leis. “ We’ve implemented many green initiatives over the last several years for the cost savings effect. The Green Lodging program guidelines have provided us with additional ways of doing good for the environment and saving on expenses.”
