Miami Beach Eco-Style at 1 Hotel

Green living and respect for the environment are more than buzzwords at 1 Hotel in Miami Beach.  The three R’s, reduce, reuse and recycle, are all put into practice – clothing hangers fashioned from recycled paper,  ceilings and furniture made of reclaimed wood and there are even bins in your room to recycle your unwanted clothing.

The  grey wood used for framing doorways is recycled beetle wood from Colorado. The pine beetles carry a fungus that leaves an attractive grey stain which does not affect the wood’s strength.

Instead of plastic water bottles, rooms come with Triple-Clear water filters, and smart phones replace printed hotel guides . As well, natural fabrics are used for all  the furniture.

Everyone likes freebies. At 1 Hotel, complimentary services for guests include: a different cocktail every night in the hotel garden at happy hour, fresh organic fruit in the lobby in the morning, and first come, first serve chauffeured rides in electric Tesla cars within a three-mile radius.

1 hotel has applied for silver certification from the green building program LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design). Beneath this cool exterior lies a luxury hotel with an Eco-friendly heart.

  1. Gorgeous! It’s time to visit Miami again. 1Hotel sounds wonderful, especially the four pools and chauffeured Tesla rides, and that they are applying for silver LEED certification. Looks like an amazing place to stay.

    1. Thanks for your comment. Rare to find a hotel that is as committed to recycling as we are.
