Sunscreen? Check. Bugspray? Check. Green Lodging designation? Ch— wait, what’s that?
A Green Lodging designation, bestowed by Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), is a certification that states that hotels or other places of lodging have implemented a series of recommended practices designed to reduce energy and water use and produce less refuse.
This past week, Fanning Springs State Park received this designation for its overnight cabins, which opened three years ago.
