By preserving the integrity of architectural masterpieces the need for new materials is reduced as well as the carbon footprint in the restoration process. Kimpton continues to reduce their impact on our environment by the constant introduction of eco-friendly products and practices.
Beginning with the simple change of coffee to organic coffee, the planet friendly ideas keep growing. Now post-consumer recycled content paper is used throughout the company, hotels and restaurants and soy based inks are used for printing. Water-efficiency in the bathrooms can be found in the shower heads, faucets and toilets. Recycling is taken inside the rooms so guests can continue their recycling practices away from home. Most of the newer ideas come from the employees who are as passionate as Kimpton
in regards to the Earth Care program. For example, recycling the wire coat hangers from guest laundry services saves two tons of steel in any given year.
