In the past 10 years, the term „Going Green” gains not only public and media attention but also encourages companies and business to change their ways of running. The question you would probably ask now is why? Lets first concentrate on this simple question, what is going green?

The one that didn't turn green, but still is a really good hotel with a nice view at the city or a hotel that supports his way of life and will make him feel better about himself.
