Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm Awarded TripAdvisor Greenleaders Status

Los Poblanos today proudly announced it has been accepted as a Platinum level GreenLeader into the new TripAdvisor® GreenLeaders™ program, which helps travelers plan greener trips by identifying environmentally-friendly accommodations across the U.S.

TripAdvisor GreenLeaders have met a set of environmental standards developed for TripAdvisor by a leading environmental consulting firm, with input from expert partners. The more green practices a hotel has in place, the higher its GreenLeader level, which is shown on the property’s listing on the TripAdvisor site. Less than 10% of GreenLeader hotels have achieved this Platinum level, and an even smaller percentage of total TripAdvisor properties.

Los Poblanos promotes ecological consciousness in providing hospitality to their guests. They use all natural biodegradable cleaning products, feature organic ingredients in all menus and prioritize water conservation programs throughout the property. Bicycles are also available for guests to encourage a low emission vacation and local experience.

Travelers can now search for accommodations that have a GreenLeaders status on the TripAdvisor site, and view a detailed list of environmentally-friendly practices that they can expect at each location.

“TripAdvisor GreenLeaders are leading the hospitality industry in making efforts to improve their environmental footprint,” said Jenny Rushmore, director of responsible travel at TripAdvisor. “We greatly applaud these accommodations and are pleased to share their eco-friendly practices with our online audience of more than 200 million travelers.”

The TripAdvisor GreenLeaders program was developed in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® program, the U.S. Green Building Council, and the United Nations Environment Programme. For more information, please visit www.tripadvisor.com/GreenLeaders.

Los Poblanos offers 20 guest rooms on their 25 acre historic property. The guest rooms and suites exhibit classic New Mexican style with wood-burning fireplaces, original artwork, carved ceiling beams, hardwood floors, and antique southwest furnishings. All bedrooms have luxurious bedding and feature their signature lavender spa amenities. A full organic gourmet breakfast is included in the room rates.
