Just because Hollywood is where some of the richest people on earth live, it does not mean that the community does not have a sense of social and environmental responsibility. Indeed, some of the most socially aware people are big figures in Hollywood. As another testament to how this part of the world is contributing to the effort to save Mother Earth, the first eco-friendly lounge is set to open in November of this year in Hollywood.
Dubbed Ecco, the lounge is located in the Cahuenga Corridor and is set to lay down the standards for an environmentally friendly night out. Ecco used to be the Tokio Hollywood, which was renovated and transformed into something which, many would say, is better.
So what makes Ecco different from the plethora of night clubs and lounges in Hollywood? Here are some of its features:
— Multi-colored state-of-the-art LED lighting, exclusively designed and installed by Disco Designer and Cosmos Lighting.
— Neutralized carbon emissions through LivClean.
— Green energy supplied by L.A. Department of Water & Power’s Green Power resources.
— Certified organic cuisine and beverages without fertilizers, pesticides, hormones or antibiotics.
— Energy efficient insulation, saving 20% more energy than standard insulation.
— Eco-friendly bathrooms with flushless toilets, Dyson “Airblade” hand dryers, and organic cleansers and hand soaps.
— Free valet service for hybrid vehicles.
— Paperless event ticketing, table and bottle reservations provided by UpCode Solutions USA/Mobile Access & Interaction technology (MAI)(TM).
— Custom audio provided by Turbosound, winners of the Best Club Awards
LED lighting, flushless toilets, organic food – you can’t get any “eco-friendlier” than that can you?
