Kimpton Cares About Environment

Last Thursday evening the meet-up group Green Drinks Arlington held a mixer event at the Hotel Palomar in Rosslyn. The hotel is located near the Orange Line Metro Station with spectacular views of Georgetown and Downtown D.C. across the Potomac River.

A spokesperson from Kimpton Hotels, which owns Palomar, explained the company's green initiatives to the attendees enjoying their happy hour beverages. Some examples of their eco-friendly products and practices include:
  • No styrofoam or disposable cups
  • Paper recycling containers in all meeting rooms
  • Environmentally safe cleaning products
  • In-room recycling program
  • Organic food and beverages in honor bars
  • Elimination of phone books
  • Water-saving shower heads, faucets and toilets
  • Energy efficient lighting
Kimpton is a shining example to other companies in the hospitality industry that going green can be done without sacrificing quality or the bottom line.
