Fiber Origin & Type are Just a Part of Linens’ Evolving Sustainability Story


NATIONAL REPORT—Getting guests to forego linen laundering is one way to reduce linen-related costs and their associated environmental footprint. Another way is to choose linen that is inherently environmentally advantageous—in other words, its reduced footprint is built into its very fibers. Still another way is to choose a supplier that not only is concerned about the product itself but also the supply chain behind it, how it is made, and what happens to it at the end of its life. When considering environmental impact, there is no perfect sheet or pillow case. Cotton, unless it is certified organic, requires a significant amount of herbicides and pesticides to grow and maintain. As versatile as polyester is, it is petroleum-derived. Fortunately, through research and testing, suppliers have figured out ways to at least reduce the environmental impact of their products and, in some cases, even introduce new fiber types into their textile blends—those made from eucalyptus or beech trees, for example.

Kimpton Hotel, Once a Post Office, Axes Environmental Impact


WASHINGTON, D.C.—The green team at Kimpton’s Hotel Monaco Washington, D.C. has had a lot to smile about lately. The hotel was presented with the Technology Innovation, Medium Property award earlier this summer by the American Hotel & Lodging Association. That honor followed last year’s Mayor’s Sustainability Award. More importantly, in the last two years the hotel has completed a long list of projects—$2.4 million worth—that have resulted in a drop of 48 percent in utility costs, 24 percent reduction in energy use, 31 percent reduction in energy rates, and 32 percent drop in water consumption. Getting to its current operating condition has been a long road for the property that originally was built in 1842. It once served as the U.S. General Post Office and was converted into a hotel in 2001. The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) owns the building and Pebblebrook Hotel Trust has owned the ground lease since 2010. Not long after Pebblebrook got involved in the hotel, it began identifying projects to invest in.
