ANVIL KNITWEAR OUTFITS GUESTS FOR LAUNCH OF FIRST U.S. “GREEN” HOTEL
Anvil Knitwear, New York, helped Napa Valley’s Gaia Hotel celebrate its highly anticipated grand opening on March 30 by donating T-shirts from its 100 percent organic line for the event. The Gaia Hotel, which gets its name from the Mother Earth goddess in Greek mythology, is the first fully environmentally sustainable hotel in the United States.
“Anvil launched its organic line just two weeks before our opening,” said Sunshine Gallagher, event coordinator. “Getting the two together was kismet. Both Gaia and Anvil are at the cutting-edge of a major ‘green’ movement.”
The Gaia Hotel was built on four naturally landscaped acres to appeal to eco-conscious travelers. It was constructed from environmentally friendly materials, uses solar power and water-saving techniques, and has a lagoon with its own eco-system.
“The world is changing,” noted Anvil CEO, Anthony Corsano. “Today ‘going green’ can still mean luxury, and can still mean affordability. Corporations and consumers are increasingly taking responsibility for the environment.”
