We are delighted and overwhelmed to have received two awards this year rewarding our efforts to be a green hotel property.
Thank you to the Pocono Mountain Businees Journal for naming us one of the top ten “green businesses” in the Poconos and also the Pocono Mountain Visitors Bureau for the award we received this week for the green property of the year . We are honored to have been recognized for our efforts in the green movement. At The Settlers Inn we have a twenty eight year tradition of sustainability and yet we find that there are still so many more opportunities to conserve, reuse and preserve. This year we have asked our safety committee at the inn to add the responsibilities of also becoming our environmental committee. Some of our new endeavors are small simple steps like reusable shopping bags and buying the new environmentally friendly paint. We are trading in carpets for cork flooring in one of our guest rooms. We are adding more protective window treatments to aid in heating and cooling of the guest rooms. Grant says there is a dizzying array of new choices to help us fulfill our goals of lessening our footprint. Please give us your thoughts and suggestions on your next visit to the inn – and thank you for helping us stay green. It’s good to be green!
