Tennessee Green Friendly Lodging
Home > Green Friendly Lodging
Many of our innkeepers have gone to great lengths to ensure that their businesses are green. They use cleaning products that are less harmful to the environment, and ecologically friendly soaps. They buy locally, using locally grown produce in their food whenever possible. They make many choices small and large to help lessen their impact on the environment, and they do so because they believe it is essential.
Below is a list of green inns in Tennessee. Please peruse them to see if one is right for your next vacation in Tennessee.
At Hastings House Bed & Breakfast we try to be as green-friendly as you want: we offer clothesline dried towels, we use linen napkins & placemats, we recycle the daily newspapers & magazines along with mixed paper, plastic & aluminum cans, we purchase locally grown fruits & veggies (we grow our own raspberries & tomatoes) and best of all, we are located within walking distance of 6 restaurants. We also compost our food waste (we don't have a garbage disposal!)

We endeavor to live responsibly from those things we recycle, the choices we make when buying products, to those herbs and vegetables we grow fresh on the property. Do we have this down to a science? Certainly not, but each year we contribute a little less to the carbon footprint we leave behind.

We never miss an opportunity to reuse and recycle. Guests are provided with white paper sacks for collection of recyclable items (bottles, paper, etc.) Wall dispensers for shampoo and cream rinse do away with tiny bottles. Vegetable/fruit waste is composted. Low energy appliances and lighting are used often. Decorative lighting is being switched to LEDs. You may rehang your towels if you so choose. In the end, an historic building like our inn (built in 1889) is the ultimate recycling program. Remodeling choices have been "green" to the best of our ability at the time of their creation. We'd still love to install a tiny windmill to harness the frequent here in Northeast Tennessee.
