It was one of the most pleasant images to emerge in the last year: the sight of dolphins returning to Venice’s Grand Canal. As well as offering up the internet’s favorite 2020 catchphrase (“Nature is healing” still gives us a smile), it also inspired travelers the world-over to consider how their wanderlust can positively impact the planet. According to a Euromonitor study, 76% of travelers are expected to be more concerned about sustainability once overseas vacations resume. So, what does a sustainably conscious travel brand look like in 2021? Meet SCP Hotels.
Few brands are more attuned to the world’s recent ethical awakening, prioritizing healthy living, kindness towards others and compassion for the planet across its stylishly minimalist properties in Colorado Springs, Oregon and Hawaii. So, if you want to make a positive impact next time you’re back on the travel saddle, here’s how a stay with SCP Hotels can do just that.

It almost goes without saying, but you won’t find any wastage at an SCP Hotels property. Single-use plastic shower amenities are banished, its Colorado Springs property boasts energy-efficient systems like solar panels, while the brand’s rooms come with premium mattresses made from plant-based memory foam.
The Impact of Your Stay Goes Further Than You Think
