It’s one thing to commit to a socially conscious lifestyle in your own home, where you control the variables. But on the road, it’s practically impossible — until now. ­

Element Hotels, the eco-wise division of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, reports that all of its hotels now meet the brand’s commitment to 100 percent renewable energy. In pursuit of the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for high-performance buildings, the company’s Global Citizenship team challenged its owners in 2010 to increase renewable-energy usage from 35 percent to 70 percent as part of LEED volume build certification.

Then, in 2012, they upped the ante to 100 percent, and the individual hotels stepped up to the challenge by purchasing Renewable Energy Credits from their local energy providers, guaranteeing that the energy used was coming from renewable sources like wind, hydroelectric, solar or geothermal. But don’t worry; guests still experience posh (yet green) amenities like natural light in rooms and public spaces, healthy dining options during its complimentary breakfast, saline swimming pools, bikes to borrow and electric-vehicle charging stations.
