Check in to the luxurious Fairmont Washington, DC Hotel. To show its commitment to the environment, the hotel purchases wind credits for energy, grows herbs in its garden and even maintains its own beehives for fresh honey.
Before you hit the town, enjoy an eco-friendly bite at the hotel’s restaurant, Juniper. The hotel’s homegrown herbs and honey give the cuisine a fresh and sophisticated flavor.
Grab your earth-minded (and fashion-conscious) friends and head to Adams Morgan to shop for vintage clothes at Meeps, dubbed “DC’s Best Vintage Clothing Store” by the Washington City Paper.
For dinner, enjoy tasty classics like southern fried chicken and meatloaf, as well as a full vegan menu, and contemporary twists like bacon lollipops at Founding Farmers, near the Georgetown Waterfront at the Washington Harbour Shopping Plaza. DC’s first LEED-certified restaurant, it’s also owned by the North Dakota Farmers’ Union.
Reduce your carbon footprint in the city by cycling through a tour of the District. Bike and Roll can help you choose from a number of tours, from the monuments at night to a capital sites tour, or rent your own bike and create your own romantic ride.
