"Going green has meant cost savings to the Mt. Pleasant Holiday Inn Express and Suites.  More than that, through our green reputation and practices, our hotel has attracted business that would have gone elsewhere.  The Green Business Challenge is a great local program that shows off our efforts to be good stewards of the earth’s resources."
- Steve Lavelle, General Manager, Holiday Inn Express Mount Pleasant

- Duvall Events

"We had a number of initiatives, such as energy savings and recycling programs, in place already. What GBC did was educate us about other areas we could add to our green initiatives and encourage us take them on. The program has really helped keep our momentum going.”
