Three eco-friendly products offer a fresh take on common event goodies.
One of the most eco-friendly hotels in the world, The Hotel at Oberlin in Ohio, offers sustainable meetings and environmental team building exercises. They’ve partnered with Common Ground—The Cindy Nord Center for Renewal, for team-building workshops.
Common Ground is located 30 acres in of the Vermilion River Valley near Oberlin, and offers trained guides, zip lining, two spiral staircases, three aerial bridges and 13 tree platforms. Their activities include a two-and-half-hour Canopy Tour that finishes off with an 850-foot zip line over the Vermilion River.
The Hotel Oberlin in Ohio, is leading the way in the hotel industry for creating environmentally sustainable hotels.
The standout hotel is the only one in the US to use solar, geothermal and radiant heating and cooling systems. It’s also one of only five hotels in the U.S. specifically designed for the LEED Platinum certification from the US Green Building Council. Developed by SMART Hotels, the hotel is managed by The Olympia Companies and owned by Oberlin College.
On Sept. 13, 2016, one of the most environmentally sustainable hotels in the world, The Hotel at Oberlin, will open in Ohio. Sustainability has been an important consideration throughout the hotel’s development—all companies hired to develop and manage the hotel focus on creating sustainable design and features that complement the environmentally sustainable hotel.
Unconventional, unfettered and sometimes a little unpredictable, dinners beyond the confines of restaurants and hotels can be a blast for laid-back groups.
