Green Plus Recognizes Ewing, NJ Hotel for Its Environmental Responsibility

Earth Day Is Every Day at the Eco-Friendly SpringHill Suites Ewing Princeton South

EWING, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 04/25/14 -- With environmental responsibility now a topic of conversation among everyone from the UN to neighborhood councils, there's a growing sense that we all need to pitch in where we can. And that goes for hotels, too. Not only do forward-thinking properties concern themselves with the welfare of today's guests, they also do what they can to ensure a cleaner, more sustainable future for tomorrow's travelers. Few places take that commitment more seriously than SpringHill Suites Ewing Princeton South, which has held certifications by both Energy Star and Green Plus since 2012.

The property has long enjoyed a reputation for convenience and style among hotels near Princeton, New Jersey. Its ecological sensitivity is another item on the hotel's list of distinguishing factors. Both Energy Star and Green Plus, a third-party certification organization, have recognized the hotel for its extensive efforts to minimize its carbon footprint.

Embracing the idea that every little bit helps, the hotel has taken both big and small steps toward more sustainable hospitality. Like many hotels near Hopewell, NJ, for example, it has implemented towel and linen reuse programs, and it recycles paper, plastic and glass. Bigger changes, however, include transitioning away from compact fluorescent bulbs to LEDs, controlling thermostats during extreme heat and cold to minimize energy use and timing the landscaping's sprinklers to run for brief periods of time on alternate dates. (The hotel also chooses to use plant-friendly ice-melt compounds when winter deals its harshest weather.)

Swimmers may notice that the lights in the pool area are turned off during the day, which is another effort to save energy. (Of course, the pool's western exposure ensures there's plenty of natural light to swim by.) And when it's time to wash the towels or other laundry, guests will find Energy Star-rated washing machines in the guest laundry facility and washers with the RinSave feature in the hotel's main laundry facility.

Eco-conscious travelers, whether they're exploring Mercer hotels at The Conference Center, hotels near the Trenton-Mercer Airport or properties near Princeton University, won't find anything that comes close to this property's unique blend of service, style and sustainability.
