Seattle's Space Needle Goes Above And Beyond Green

Seattle, the Emerald City, is undeniably green. Leaders there are doing remarkable work, passing innovative sustainable policies all over the place.  But no place in Washington is more popular then their futuristic Space Needle – an icon for the city since 1962. I still get nervous riding that outside elevator to the top. The Needle has passed a new initiative to “go green”; a representative explains their ideals well by saying, “It isn’t a matter of taking the first step to ‘go green’ anymore — it’s a matter of going above and beyond.”

There are five key goals in this modern day makeover: really clean filtered water and no bottled water; recycling – they’re operating at over 53% recycled waste and still improving; energy conservation by changing how they light the place up; implementing a green cleaning program to remove toxic chemical products; and dish-washing grease interceptors to separate and recycle any grease in the dish water to keep it out of the sewer system.

This is promising news, learning about the recent greening of so many arenas and iconic landmarks. Let’s hope and make noise so that others follow suit.
