“With guest rooms that aim to provide maximum comfort with minimal energy footprint, we hope that others begin to share this sentiment and sustainable development truly becomes the way of the future.” Giovanni Beretta, General Manager EAST Miami
We want a stay at EAST Miami to be fun, energizing and inspire people to embrace a greener lifestyle. From the sustainable design of our LEED certified hotel to our recycling programs; our eco-friendly choices benefit our guests, team and the environment.
Our team are serving up local sourced dishes, recycling everything from soap to flip-flops, and partnering with local community groups to find more ways reduce, reuse and recycle. And this is only the start!
Below you’ll find some more details about the different ways we’re reducing our carbon footprint and making sure a better tomorrow starts here.
Science meets art in EAST Miami’s most eye-catching eco-feature, a sculptural Climate Ribbon canopy that soars above the outdoor spaces. This ultra-cool feature traps sea winds, lowers temperatures and collects rainwater for re-use; creating a pleasant microclimate that reduces the need for air conditioning.
We’re big foodies and have worked hard to create locally sourced menus that are nourishing for guests and kind to the environment. Our chefs use local seasonal produce and free-range products to create their menus – offering a growing range of taste and healthy plant-based dishes.
We love the idea of a zero waste lifestyle – that’s why we’ve gone paperless and introduced a recycling program that repurposes hotel products to benefit the local community. Leftover soaps, shampoos and toiletries are donated to Camillus House to support underprivileged families, used flip flops are given to Soles4Soul and unclaimed Lost and Found items go to the Vietnam Veterans of America.
Saving water is a key focus at EAST Miami. We use a smart pump to regulate water pressure throughout the hotel, use water-efficient bathroom fixtures and are introducing filtered water taps and shampoo dispensers in every room. By collecting rainwater for the cooling tower and landscaping needs, we're also making the most of Miami’s natural climate.
