Bridge Water Inn named green lodge
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection
(DEP) welcomed the Bridge Water Inn to the Florida Green Lodging
Program. The voluntary state initiative provides the lodging industry
with technical assistance, encouraging hotels and motels to adopt
cost-saving ‘green’ practices that reduce waste and
conserve natural resources.
The Bridge Water Inn conserves water and energy
through linen and towel reuse services, and uses sensors and compact
florescent bulbs for outdoor lighting. The facility provides guests
with washable cloths in place of paper towels and recycles aluminum,
cardboard, paper, plastic, glass and toner cartridges.
