The management company behind Savoy Suites Hotel in Washington DC’s Georgetown area, has joined the global green movement and has taken vast initiatives to become more eco-friendly, reduce our carbon footprint and conserve for a greener tomorrow.
Savoy Suites Hotel understands that “Going Green” goes beyond awareness. Creating an eco-friendly hotel in Washington DC requires considerable responsibility, dedication and passion. From our corporate offices to our boutique Georgetown hotel, we are committed to reducing our dependency on natural resources and are working hard to uncover new ways that we can contribute to improving and sustaining a clean environment for our guests, our staff and for the many visitors to Washington DC and the Georgetown neighborhood.
In 2006, our eco-friendly hotel initiative moved from awareness to action with the implementation of the Great Green Project. The Great Green Project was created by our local management team most who reside in the Georgetown area. When we first learned that businesses and communities within the District of Columbia throw away over 700,000 tons of trash each year, we knew there was an opportunity to make a difference. It was then when we expanded our in-house recycling program and included an educational element for existing team members and new hires of the Savoy Suites Hotel. Multi-lingual classes were developed along with new learning materials to educate our small family on the earth saving techniques and benefits of a proper recycling program.
With a newfound awareness in place, Savoy Suites Hotel near Georgetown extended the Great Green Project to each of our 150 DC hotel guest rooms accommodations and suites. From careful selection of eco-friendly green cleaning agents and detergents, to new in-room water conservation signage, guests of the Savoy Suites Hotel responded positively to the new changes, in turn generating a new excitement among the hotel staff.
