Most people don’t think about sustainability when it comes to hotels. Hotels are short stay places where everything is just thrown away after they’re used. Some hotels are better then others, hotels with LEED Certifications or Green Business certificates go out of their way to reduce their carbon footprints.
The Loews Hotel in Santa Monica is no exception, they have just received their Green Business Certification for going above and beyond in their sustainable practices. They have done everything from use low VOC paint to green building materials.
On top of all of this, they also donate their excess food to charities. Their participation in food recycling programs not only makes them more sustainable for recycling food, but also helps people in need and gives back to the community.
If you’re in the LA area, be sure to stop by the Loews Hotel for some food or a drink, you cant miss it, it’s the gorgeous beachfront hotel that’s a stones throw away from the iconic Santa Monica Pier.
