Authenticity Watch: Green Nightclubs

Live from New York, an eco-friendly dance club called Greenhouse. 

The two-level club, which is roughly 6,000 square feet, features high-efficiency heating, ventilation and air conditioning, and an LED lighting system that uses just a little more than 3 percent of the energy of a standard lighting installation. All of the materials used to furnish the venue — from the synthetic couches to the coasters on the tables — are recycled or recyclable.

I love this part:

In creating Greenhouse, Mr. Husserl and Mr. Bakshi said they wanted to show the night club industry that partying and sustainability aren’t mutually exclusive.


Thanks to my friend Chris, the Business Ethicist, for the link.
