If you're looking for a greener way to travel, the Westin Singapore wants to help you out. The hotel now offers environmental impact indicators that inform guests how green they really are. The hotel has two eco-friendly floors featuring 'green rooms' that measure carbon emissions. This means a total of 56 rooms are equipped with the impact-measuring meters.

This initiative will hopefully help Westin Singapore guests not just monitor their carbon footprint, but also reduce their energy consumption. Each guest receives a ranking of their energy use, from green (20% below average) to amber and red levels. Even though not all guests will be interested in this information, the hotel is offering to donate $1 to UNICEF for every guest who gets a green ranking, giving more incentive to change habits.
