H2Otel Challenge Continues to Encourage Water Savings

WaterSense is encouraging hotels across the country to keep track of water usage

U.S. EPA - H2Otel Challenge 2015 - Water Use

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) WaterSense program is continuing its H2Otel Challenge in 2015, encouraging hotels to assess, change and track their water use using best management practices. To date, 800 hotels have pledged to tackle projects throughout their properties that can improve water efficiency and performance while providing the highest-quality experience for guests.

To spread the word, EPA is encouraging WaterSense partners to join a Recruiting Rally from Feb. 1 to June 1 to get hotels to sign up for the challenge. The promotional partner that recruits the most hotels to sign up for the challenge during that time period will be rewarded with free technical assistance. Hotels will gain access to a range of free tools to help them start saving water, energy and operating costs. WaterSense also will offer outreach materials for hotels to publicize their efforts and celebrate their successes with guests and employees.
