YOU CAN MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE
All you have to do is have an amazing time in one of our properties.
We believe that hotels that care about the environment, about their staff and the communities around them are also likely to take better care of their guests. We believe that sustainability is a pre requisite to a good experience.
But it only starts there. All our members wow their guests and have the track record to prove it. They understand that the best way to succeed is by delivering ridiculously good service.
For BookGreener members, True Luxury is all about time, space and privacy. They aim at inspiring a lifetime of rare experiences because luxury is about creating something rare, something new, true and inspiring.
Staying at a BookGreener property, you are giving back as much – if not more – than what you take away. Often in ways you’d never expect.
We believe that your travel dollars should stay where you spend them.
When it comes down to booking your room, we give you the choice between booking directly with the hotel or going to Booking.com. Hotels offer the best available rate and we recommend you to book through them directly saving them a hefty commission. Up to you!
BookGreener is the invisible hand that propels tourism businesses in solving social and environmental management challenges in their communities.
Together, owners and managers learn how to find practical and viable solutions to daily problems (i.e. to do with waste, energy, food-sourcing, staff training, customer relationship).
We also come together and take together tangible actions to tackle some key environmental and social issues.
The initiatives by the members:
RefillMyBottle provides a simple solution to this complex problem. We have created a network of RefillStations that are listed on an online map. Anyone can use these RefillStations to refill their bottles as an alternative to buying water in single-use plastic bottles.
RefillMyBottle is a community of responsible travellers, conscious locals and mindful business owners who take action against plastic waste.
Our goal is to reduce the number of single-use plastic bottles used unnecessarily, starting in Indonesia.
#IaminBaliNOW social media campaign.
The average Tourism Business in Bali is losing 1000s of USD worth of income each day, thanks to a Volcano that may NOT erupt for MONTHS.
The campaign #iaminBaliNOW is modeled after a similar very successful scheme, trialed and tested in Nepal. It is a crowd-sourced, social media campaign to advise friends and visitors that Bali is open for business and tourism as usual. The campaign showcases Bali as it is now, with reliable, up-to-the date information, facts, photos and stories.
The #iaminBaliNOW campaign is a collaboration between travel agents, resorts, shops, restaurants, yoga centers and suppliers, all located in Bali, who care for their island. It has the support of tourism experts and special input and guidance from our friends in Nepal, who launched Nepal Now, after the devastating earthquake the country suffered in the spring of 2015.
How does it work?
1. Print & laminate a #iaminBaliNOW poster available on the Facebook page.
2. Take selfies in beautiful locations and share on social media using #iaminBaliNOW
Thinkoutsidethetrash. It is about hoteliers committing to preserving Bali’s eco-system through sustainable waste management, staff education and working with their communities to reduce, reuse, and recycle. We recognize and support hoteliers who want to minimize their negative impact on the environment and make a positive impact on their local communities.
