Santa Monica’s got a new green hotel

Santa Monica, Calif. - Travellers who are mindful of minimizing their carbon footprint can sleep soundly at Shore Hotel, the city's only LEED Silver-certified property. This eco-friendly beachside hotel was partly constructed out of salvaged and recycled materials from two demolished motels that formerly occupied its space. Roof-mounted solar panels, high-efficiency boilers and burners, low-flow shower heads and a storm-water runoff plan help to conserve energy and protect natural resources. And if you're looking for a restaurant that serves locally sourced fare, consult the Green Concierge, an electronic compilation of the neighbourhood's greenest shops, restaurants and transportation options.
