21c Strives to be Green

21c doesn’t just consider “going green” to be a smart move; we believe it’s necessary for our future. Faced with ever-expanding suburban sprawl, 21c founders Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson hoped to invigorate downtown, bringing life back to the urban center. Each day the 21c Museum seeks to enrich our community through the encouragement of open and creative expression of all art forms. 21c Museum Hotel and Metropole strive to sustain that same community through eco-friendly practices and environmental awareness. Our approach is quite simple – always strive to be green. We aim to have a positive impact on the planet by taking steps to reduce our carbon, plastic and food waste – to do that 21c has implemented a Sustainability Fee of $2 to help support that mission in addition to providing each 21c guest with a PATH water bottle in their room. PATH is the first certified refillable and 100% recyclable bottled water packaged in a sleek and sturdy, reusable aluminum container. Water filling stations are located throughout the building for you to refill your PATH water bottle.
