Sorting hotel search results by Price, Hotel Name, or Distance from a Landmark are familiar tools to almost any traveler, but RezHub.com is now providing a sort feature with a conscience: Sort by Green Score. Customers using the RezHub.com hotel search are now able to view hotels in order of the way they care for the environment.
RezHub.com and their Green Travel Hub launched in September of last year with a dedication to providing green travel options to everyone and for every trip. Since their launch, the site has continued to provide innovative tools to help travelers learn that going green does not have to mean going to extremes. The RezHub Green Score ratings system for hotels was designed to show customers exactly what steps individual hotels are taking to protect the planet. Hotels earn points and Green Score “Branches” by completing tasks ranging from incorporating recycling programs, to using Energy Star Appliances, to landscaping with native plant gardens. RezHub became the first travel site to include a Green Score in every hotel search, and the launch of their Sort by Green Score feature is the perfect enhancement. The Sort by Green Score feature works just as a “sort by price” would work. When sorted, hotels appear in order of their Green Score starting with the highest at the top and ranging down to the lowest.
RezHub has already Green Scored almost 1000 hotels in the US, 2000 worldwide, and their list grows daily. Customers are encouraged to keep in mind that although some hotels may only have received one Green Score Branch, that they are making positive changes for the planet. “It's important to support the green efforts that each hotel is making because it shows the management that they are doing the right thing,” says Marketing Director for the website Melissa Evans. “Supporting these programs now will help them grow in the future.” RezHub will continue on its mission to bring Green Travel to the mainstream. The Sort by Green Score is one of many more features to come that will take Green Travel searching to the next level.
In addition to providing Green Travel options, information, and bookings, the website donates 20% of its profits from every trip booked to an environmental non-profit group each quarter. Which non-profit group actually “gets the green” is decided by a vote from their customers. Both the RezHub Green Score and Sort by Green features are Patent Pending.
