So congrats to Sofitel Los Angeles. It seems that it got awarded the coveted Green Seal Silver Certification. So big. To start folks, that’s a national, standardized certification. Also it is part of the nonprofit Green Seal initiative. Thereby, it was created in 1989. The encourage companies to safeguard the environment.
That’s through using environmentally responsible products and practices. Sofitel Los Angeles is the sixth hotel in Los Angeles and the first of the worldwide Sofitel hotel group to achieve this distinction.
Designed to prevent pollution, minimize waste, conserve resources and overall keep standards high for operating in a sustainable manner, the initiatives in place at the Sofitel include a commitment to purchasing and using products that minimize negative impacts on both the environment and human health. The hotel’s Green Team is dedicated to using sustainable products, recyclable products, energy efficient systems and most importantly, non-toxic items. That’s throughout every aspect of the hotel’s day-to-day operations. Again, that’s from housekeeping with Green Seal certified products and recycling. Recycling partially used guest-room toiletry products (as well as participating in the Global Soap Project recycling program) to ensuring that a minimum of 50 percent of the hotel’s food purchases are from local or regional vendors.
