Green Hotel, Green Celebs, and Me

The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

While in New York last week I had the pleasure of staying one night at 70 Park Ave Hotel. I became aware of this hotel when their eco-concierge contacted Ecorazzi a few weeks ago. That’s right: Eco-concierge. Her name is Christal White, and she’s probably the only one in the world. (She’s actually a New Orleans Hurricane Katrina transplant and she’s currently raising money for the city. Check it out.)

The hotel itself is pretty green, and getting greener by the day, thanks to Christal and her co-workers at Kimpton hotels. They currently have a linen & towel reuse program (don’t change them unless you ask). When the items are no longer of use to the hotel, they are donated to Bailey House. The bathrooms are equipped with low flow shower heads & toilets, as well as faucet aerators to help conserve water. 100% recycled content paper products are used throughout the lavatories & offices. Cleaning supplies are eco-friendly & non-toxic. They even re-purpose the kitchen cooking oil in biodiesel through a local company. Plus, they have fair trade coffee & chocolate. I tried Divine‘s Hazelnut Milk Chocolate. Officially my new favorite.

So it’s a green hotel – do any celebs stay there? Of course! I mean, this is Ecorazzi, after all. The hotel is quite popular with recording artists. We’re talking American Idol’s Carrie Underwood, Thievery Corporation, and the UK’s Kaiser Chiefs.
