Eco-Friendly Atlanta: How the City Is Going Green
The Midtown EcoDistrict
It’s not easy work to create and sustain an eco-friendly area, especially on such a large scale like Midtown Atlanta. Luckily, we have the Midtown Alliance, a non-profit organization made up of like-minded leaders in the private sector, to help lead crucial projects. One of the most impressive and influential examples involved taking the plans from Greenprint Atlanta and implementing them under a new brand — the Midtown EcoDistrict. This allowed them to gather more support for green initiatives and share success stories with the community and beyond.
The Five Impact Areas
Midtown Atlanta is the perfect place to establish the Southeast region’s first urban eco-district. Our historical destination is home to pedestrian-friendly pathways, ample public transportation, and beautiful green spaces. However, that doesn’t mean that the Midtown Alliance’s work is over. They strive to sustain and improve upon these characteristics, and they hope to inspire members of the community to do the same. Here are the “Impact Areas” they focus on:
- Open space
Keep these in mind when you go about your daily life. The Midtown Alliance can’t do it alone. We can all continue to enjoy — and look forward to — an urban paradise with the help of residents and local businesses implementing eco-friendly initiatives. Consider walking, biking, or using public transportation to and from attractions, refraining from littering, using energy-efficient technology in your home, and supporting green businesses.
Stay at Our Eco-Friendly Inn
Speaking of local businesses implementing eco-friendly initiatives, we’d like to invite you to Stonehurst Place for your next trip to Midtown Atlanta. We pride ourselves on running a green inn with environmentally friendly practices and technology. This includes a commitment to recycling, composting, heating water with solar panels, utilizing greywater systems, installing LED lights, using proper insulation, and even urging other businesses that we work with to follow green practices as well. We also have electric vehicle charging stations and use fresh ingredients from on-site gardens in our gourmet breakfasts. The list goes on, and the result is an incredible experience for our guests as well as the environment!
