Proximity hotel, greensboro, north carolina

The Proximity Hotel, Greensboro, South Carolina has a list on its website of over 70 sustainable practices at the hotel, but I thought that this probably summed up the ethos of the hotel owners and its staff.  Have a look – it’s a genuinely interesting approach to recarpeting the extremely large area of a hotel floor in a sustainable and circular economy approach. Perhaps more hotels should do this.

The carpet company is called Mohawk and is the largest recycler in the flooring industry and use recycled content in more than 500 of their products.

Here is a link to the good city of Greenboro.

Poximity Hotel is also the first LEED Platinum “green hotel” in the USA and the building’s design and construction followed guidelines of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™, the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.
