Last week we did a survey in the midtown area, in the hotel InterContinental Barclay and Waldorf Astoria. The InterContinental Barclay uses 100% wind energy for electricity and water conservation for towel washing. For the details of energy saving systems, check link 1.

And in the Waldorf Astoria, they aim to solve several problems: Carbon, water wasting, food recycle, soap recycle and so on.

The survey is quite related to my project. Because to build a space for taking rest, sustainability is an important part to be considered.
