It can include not just hotels, lodging and restaurants, but assisted living and children's centers as well. This program addresses sustainable issues pertaining to interiors while penetrating the health issues of air and environmental quality. Furniture, furnishings and materials will be reviewed for green hospitality application. The program will also impart valuable case studies from the Florida Green Lodging Assessor, Green Hotelier and the LEED ratings system.
