Green is the new gold standard. And I'm always thrilled to learn that some of my favorite--not to mention most indulgent--Florida resorts are very green-minded.
I'm thinking about places like The Breakers Palm Beach, a member of the Florida Green Lodging Program since 2006 (the deep-well osmosis system here saves more than 104 million gallons of potable water each year!) and The Reach Resort in Key West, recently honored by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection as One Palm Green Lodge certified.
If staying green is important to you, browse a list of more than 600 enviro-friendly properties in Florida by clicking here.
Among the luxury addresses that meet Florida's green standards are hotels such as The Shore Club in Miami Beach, Sonesta Bayfront Hotel in Coconut Grove, Hyatt Key West Resort & Spa, WaterColor Inn in Northwest Florida and Amelia Island Plantation in North Florida.
Wherever your destination in Florida, you can rest assured there's a green-friendly option for you. And thanks, in advance, for doing your part to protect our state's incredible natural resources!
