stratfordinn green initiative

At the Stratford Inn, we take our commitment to the environment seriously. That”™s why we are the only hotel to have been recognized by the City of Ashland”™s Green Business Program. Our eco-friendly efforts include…

Toiletries: It”™s estimated that between 1 to 1.5 million partially-used bars of soap are discarded from hotel rooms every single day in the U.S. Add in all the little disposable bottles that most hotels use for shampoo, conditioner, and lotion, and you”™re looking at a lot of needless waste””and a lot of overloaded landfills! New for 2012, the Stratford Inn has installed dispensers in our guest rooms to provide the perfect amount of soap, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash for every guest. We use Natura products, which are biodegradable, vegan-friendly, and full of gentle, moisturizing botanicals.

Recycling: The Stratford Inn is one of the only hotels in Ashland to provide a recycling bin in every room.

Housekeeping: 90% of our cleaning supplies are environmentally-friendly chemicals. All our laundry is done in house, rather than being transported off-site.

Chlorination: We chlorinate our pool using an eco-friendly saline system.

How You Can Do Your Part: If you”™re staying with us for more than one night, we invite you to join us in conserving water and energy by reusing your towels and linens during your stay. To reuse your towels, please put them on the towel rack or on the counter, and our housekeeping staff will hang them neatly for you to use again. If you wish to have them replaced, just put them in the bathtub or on the floor. For a multiple-day stay, we will remake your bed instead of changing your linens every day, unless you prefer otherwise; please let the Front Desk know if you wish to have your linens changed, and we will be happy to accommodate you!
