Green Hotels Association
(1993; Houston, TX; greenhotels.com)

Is an association “committed to encouraging, promoting and supporting ecological consciousness in the hospitality industry.” It “urges hoteliers to “green up” with small measures such as serving drinking water on request only as well as with major renovations to all-fluorescent lighting and by every measure in between.” GHA has devoted itself to “the task of seeking out and researching ideas and techniques that hoteliers can use to conserve water and energy and reduce solid waste.”
