Santa Barbara, CA (PressExposure) July 18, 2009 -- The greening of the hospitality industry is making it easier for travelers to choose from eco-friendly options when booking hotels, motels and vacation rentals this summer. Santa Barbara Luxury Rentals, a company that provides a variety of high-end, fully-furnished vacation homes, recently implemented green cleaning solutions to further its commitment to providing the highest quality vacation rentals in Santa Barbara.
The green cleaning products and cleaners used at their Santa Barbara vacation rentals are made from natural and non-toxic ingredients that make it possible for travelers and their families to enjoy a safe environment free from harsh chemicals.
âWe were getting questions from guests who had allergies or sensitivities to the synthetic chemicals in conventional cleaners,â said Graham Farrar, an owner of Santa Barbara Luxury Rentals. âIn addition to using environmentally-friendly cleaning products in our own home, weâre very aware of environmental issues so it just made sense for us to implement the same green cleaning solutions in our business.â
Farrar, who works with other eco-friendly organizations in Santa Barbara like Heal the Ocean, recently started the Green Team at the Santa Barbara Bowl to implement new programs and build community partnerships to support and enhance the venueâs existing eco-efforts.
In addition to using green cleaning products at home, Farrar believes in setting an example for his young children by doing what they can as a family to minimize their impact on the environment â whether itâs recycling and composting or buying organic and supporting green causes.
âSustainable business practices are simply good for everyone involved,â Farrar said. âChemical-free cleaning is just another step weâre taking to help preserve the planet while leading our children and our guests and employees toward a sustainable future.â
