The Water Conservation Hotel and Motel Program (Water CHAMPSM) is the free and easy towel and linen reuse program sponsored by the Southwest Florida Water Management District.
- More than 350 hotels participate in Water CHAMP.
- With your help, the lodging facility which you stay at can save an average of 17 gallons of water per day per occupied room.
- You can help keep Florida beautiful and worth visiting for generations to come.
You make a difference.
The main component of being a Water CHAMP property is implementing a towel and linen reuse program. A reuse program provides in-room materials that allow guests to choose to reuse their towels and linens instead of having them changed every day of their stay. Decreasing the amount of laundry helps conserve Florida’s water and also reduces the amount of detergents going into the environment and polluting our water systems.
According to a recent survey, more than 75 percent of U.S. travelers feel it is important their visits not damage the environment. Also, more than two-thirds of Australian travelers and 90 percent of British tourists consider active protection of the environment to be part of a hotel’s responsibility.
You can do your part, too, by staying at a Water CHAMP green hotel during your next stay.
