 HOW TO BECOME AN APPROVED VENDOR CLOSE
GHA's Approved Vendors are all Ally Members of "Green" Hotels Association®. We ask all prospective Ally Members to send us information on their green product or service. You can e-mail links to webpages you'd like us to see. We assess what you send, and, generally, respond with an invitation to join. We tell everyone that none of us can be green without the vendors offering their green products and services—they're absolutely critical to greening.

We would be very pleased to have your business join "Green" Hotels Association® as an Ally Member. Please see www.greenhotels.com/memship.php to learn more about the features and benefits of Ally Membership. See www.greenhotels.com/appvvend.php to see our list of Ally Members by categories along with their attention-grabbing logos.

Below are downloadable .pdf files of our membership brochure, application and benefits page for your convenience.

The media has always been extremely good to GHA, and we are very grateful. The media attention lifts all of our members and brings new business to our members' green doors. Web statistics regarding unique visitors and hits are posted on our home page, and verify the impact GHA has had on environmental aspects of the hospitality industry resulting from our almost 20-year history.

GHA wants to know about the greenness of your product or service. We want Ally Members to have an environmental webpage explaining why the product or service they are marketing is green. We insist that browsers from GHA's website be able to immediately find the green products or services of the vendor. Also, we think it's very important that vendors provide information on how green your business is internally. So, GHA always suggests that Ally Members also have environmental webpages on the greenness of the business internally so that prospective clients and customers know that you are walking the talk.

We look forward to having your company join our elite corps of green vendors working to provide green products and services to hoteliers interested in protecting our environment. Please do let me know if you have further questions or concerns.

Thinking "green", Patty Griffin, President and Founder, "Green" Hotels Association®
