Not a problem at all Mich, it is a worthy endeavor and whenever possible I see no reason not to try and be an asset to the earth when possible ... the thanks is to Elizabeth for doing the leg work.

Making this list of "green" hosts changed my views.  I expected to sort out halfhearted greenwashers and come up with only a few that are the real deal, but that just wasn’t the case.  The issues are broader than if a host has solar panels on their roof.I did not expect to approve of hosts that buy carbon credits, either.  After reading one host’s description of getting an energy audit and using that to determine how many carbon credits to buy, I was struck by what doing that would do to a bottom line.  With carbon credits, pollution becomes a direct cost of operation.  If I were buying carbon credits to pay for (offset) my own pollution, you can bet I’d look at ways to cut that pollution.
