Andaz London Liverpool Street teams up with eco-pioneer designers VIN + OMI to introduce ‘green’ initiatives across hotel operations

Five-star lifestyle hotel Andaz London Liverpool Street, is launching a unique collaboration with world leading eco fashion duo VIN + OMI, to further the hotel’s sustainability efforts and support its vision to operate in an environmentally conscious way. This will be achieved through various creative initiatives to reuse and recycle waste.

VIN + OMI are well known for their innovative approach to eco-fashion and have received international acclaim for their sustainable practices and circular social impact projects. Their clothing is regularly seen on global icons and influencers such as Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga and Beyonce.

They have been working with Andaz London Liverpool Street since 2016 and have hosted a number of their eco fashion shows at the hotel.

”We are proud to have a long term relationship with the Andaz London. Choosing a partner venue for our shows is a carefully thought out process. The Andaz’s creative and eco approach makes them a perfect partner” said VIN+OMI.

Over the last couple of years, Andaz London Liverpool Street has been active in making daily changes to operational procedures, from energy saving practices to the elimination of plastic and the reduction of food waste, transitioning to more sustainable processes and biodegradable alternatives. Examples include:
• Elimination of 45,000 plastic cups and over 150,000 straws yearly. These have been removed or replaced with biodegradable alternatives
• Introducing 100% biodegradable takeaway packaging for Japanese restaurant Miyako which is endeavoring to become completely waste free by the end of 2019

In 2018, Andaz London Liverpool Street was also awarded for its efforts by the Association of Energy Engineers for their Monitor & Save project. This was achieved on the back of their Western Europe Region Energy Project, which kicked off in 2016 and, within a year, saved 21% of electricity and 27.1% of gas consumption.

2019 will see the implementation of a number of environmentally-conscious procedures and the hotel will encourage guests and staff to become more aware and sustainable. The collaboration with VIN + OMI is another step to introduce a ‘green’ mindset all around.

Amanda Richter, Director of Food & Beverage at Andaz London Liverpool Street comments, “We love VIN+OMI’s passion for sustainability and the incredible creativity they bring to address environmental issues. We feel they are the perfect partner to support the hotel in its mission to become more sustainable. Through this collaboration, we aim to raise more awareness of the issue and educate our team and guests in reducing waste, focusing on small steps every day across all areas of the business”.

VIN+OMI will be launching their latest collection ‘Planet Rewind’ on Thursday 14 February at Andaz London Liverpool Street.
