To celebrate Earth Day 2018, The Peninsula Beverly Hills is launching a program to thank guests and patrons of the hotel for their commitment to sustainability. Beginning 22 April 2018, the hotel will offer complimentary valet parking to all drivers of zero emission electric vehicles.
“We would like to thank our guests who share the same commitment to sustainability by offering them complimentary valet parking at our charging stations,” says managing director, Offer Nissenbaum. “Our local community visits our spa and restaurants often, and hotel guests have been known to stay weeks at a time. This new program is designed as an exclusive benefit, to support and encourage our clients who choose to drive electric vehicles.”
The hotel also offers guests and visitors ENVi environmentally sustainable waterless car washes to help address the California water shortage. A traditional car wash uses 178 litres of water and the run off contributes to water pollution. The ENVi sustainable wash requires no water, and only 237 millilitres of locally produced, biodegradable cleaner.
“At The Peninsula Beverly Hills, our priority is to deliver the highest standard of luxury in a sustainable and responsible way,” adds managing director Offer Nissenbaum. “Our partnership with ENVi is a seamless extension of our commitment to taking proactive measures to aid our water-stressed environment.”
Waterless carwash services will be available every day at The Peninsula Beverly Hills from 22 April 2018. Prices start at $45 and a portion of every sale will be donated to Water.org, a non-profit organisation founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, dedicated to creating water equality worldwide.
The Peninsula Beverly Hills has also partnered with “Clean the World,” an organisation that collects and recycles used soaps and bottled amenities. The soaps and cleaning products are picked up each month and sanitised, re-packaged and distributed within 60 days to children and families in more than 40 countries, including the United States and Canada. By recycling and sanitising soaps, shampoos and conditioners, thousands of children around the world can be protected from deadly illnesses each day.
