Kentucky Green Lodging

Home > Find a B&B > Kentucky Green Lodging

The Bed & Breakfast Association of Kentucky (BBAK) is the first lodging organization in Kentucky, and one of the first in the nation, to introduce a Green Lodging Certification Program. Launched in celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day in 2010, BBAK’s Green Lodging Certification Program is a joint initiative of the Kentucky Department of Environmental Protection, which reviews, designates and recognizes lodging facilities that are committed to conserving and protecting Kentucky’s natural resources. 

B&Bs conduct a thorough property assessment and implement a specified number of environmental practices in 7 key areas of sustainable operations:

I. Communication and Education (Customers, Employees, & Public)

II. Waste Reduction, Reuse, and Recycling

III. Water Conservation

IV. Energy Efficiency

V. Indoor Air Quality

VI. Hazardous Substances

VII. Environmentally-Sensitive Purchasing

BBAK GLCP Members are Environmental Leaders in the Hospitality Industry for their green practices. Members remain committed to continually seeking ways to be kinder to the environment while pampering guests in luxury. The two efforts - providing luxury accommodations and being eco-friendly - are not mutually exclusive and this is proven at the inn on a daily basis. While the participating member strives to deliver exceptional comfort and service to each guest, it continues to incorporate newer products and eco-friendly practices to do so in a "greener" manner to ensure that the natural beauty of Kentucky is preserved for future generations to visit.

First Farm Inn

Phone: 859-586-0199

First Farm Inn has been an environmentally responsible or "green hotel" since its founding -- long before it was a trendy internet marketing technique. Perhaps the most green lodging in Cincinnati, our family-owned business reduces its environmental impact by using natural products, limiting chemical use, recycling everything recyclable and more. Living in harmony with nature and preserving the environment are ways we can safeguard the planet for future generations. Reducing the amount you "consume" and eliminating waste will set a good example to others and give value to your life. If being "green" is important to you, as it should be to all of us, feel free to pick up some tips to use at your home. There are so many simple ways to reduce, reuse and recycle it's amazing that so few people do it.

Living in harmony with nature and preserving the environment are ways we can safeguard the planet for future generations. Reducing the amount you "consume" and eliminating waste will set a good example to others and give value to your life. Creating a mirage of false affluence, Americans in particular have been gluttons of all things consumable, wasting natural resources and filling landfills with unused items. In the last 50 years, humans have exploited and destroyed more of the earth's resources that all the previous years of human existence combined. As a communications specialist with the Kentucky Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection, Jen spent years writing tips on being environmentally responsible and attended public comment sessions when Kentucky's air, water and solid waste regulations were promulgated. Later, as a power company employee, she authored monthly bill inserts that recommended energy efficiency approaches.
