Preserving Our Planet

Our Green + Sustainable Hotel in Austin

Eco-friendly is part of who we are

At Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt, we have the environment in mind. We are proud to do our part to care for our environment and reduce our carbon footprint, and yours, as a green hotel in Austin. From recycled materials to high efficiency cooling systems and a preference for clean-air vehicles, we’ve made sustainability a priority.

Let’s take a peek into the green practices at our environmentally friendly hotel.

Bar Soap

Sudsy Second Chances

Thanks to our partnership with Clean the World, unused portions of our bar soaps don’t get tossed into the trash. Instead, Clean the World recycles them to provide hygiene kits for impoverished communities worldwide, as well as areas recovering from natural disasters.

Atelier Bloem Products

Better by Volume

Every bathroom uses large, refillable shampoo, conditioner and shower gel amenities by Atelier Bloem, eliminating the disposal of small plastic bottles.

Plant in Hands

Recycling and Composting

At Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt, guess what happens to all the paper, plastics, glass, batteries, fluorescent lightbulbs, cardboard, crates, linens and other materials that can be recycled or composted? They get recycled or composted. Not sent to the landfill.

Farm

Farm Fresh

We source nearby farms and other food purveyors to reduce the carbon emissions of long-haul travel and to support our local economy. The bonus to you, our guest, is incredibly fresh cuisine.

Topo Chico

Local Souvenirs

Our Café 605 sources merchandise from nearby vendors for the same reason — to reduce carbon emissions and support local businesses.

Water Droplet

Go with the Flow

Even our toilets are in the sustainability game. We’ve installed low-flow, low-flush commodes to conserve water.

Ceiling Fan

Smart Air

Breathe easy—our state-of-the-art air purification system is MERV 11-13 rated. This patented system has the ability to remove dust, allergy pollens, smoke and other airborne irritants, making it significantly cleaner and healthier for all.

Green Is Clean

We know being chemical-free is just as important to your stay as cleanliness. That’s why we only use eco-friendly cleaners approved by the EPA in our guestrooms and throughout the hotel. These help combat anti-bacterial and anti-viral opponents so you can rest easy.
