EcoHosting

Travel the way you live

ECHOHOST GUIDELINES

Here at CoHost, we’ve noticed a trend with Airbnb guests wishing for a more sustainable and eco-friendly accommodation. More and more people are desiring green cleaning and linens. I started the first Green Cleaning Service back in 1991, and have the knowledge to convert your existing Airbnb space into a green one. This is very desirable for the discerning and eco-aware traveler.

 

EcoHosting: Offering earth-friendly spaces for the “green” traveler makes your space more appealing. It is good economics and good for the planet. Organic non-toxic products are not only available everywhere but are also economical. Let us assist you in creating a one-of-kind experience for those wishing to “travel the way they live” - healthy, wholesome and eco-aware.

 

It can be done with simple steps such as:
1. Organic bedding, towels and linens
2. Organic amenities 
3. Green cleaning

Less energy use reduces the demand from power plants and decreases greenhouse gas emissions. This LED bulb is sold as 24 pack on Amazon
