Globetrotting oenophiles will find a must-see destination in Holland's De Vrouwe van Stavoren Hotel. Its four two-person rooms are comprised of four converted wine casks from Switzerland. Although the eco-friendly suites are made of a most unusual material, they feature industry-standard amenities, including an attached bathroom.

In their former lives, the wine casks from De Vrouwe van Stavoren Hotel held 14,500 liters of Beaujolais. Now they hold up to two guests--and their dog.

Implications - In today's society, an increasing number of individuals have adopted a green lifestyle. Businesses that devote their efforts offering a wide range of goods and services that are complementary to an eco-conscious way of life will benefit in many ways.
