Earth Day is an annual event celebrated around the world on the 22nd of April to demonstrate support for environmental protection. More than a billion people celebrate Earth Day to protect the planet from things like pollution and deforestation. By taking part in activities like picking up litter and planting trees, we’re making our world a happier, healthier place to live. The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970, when an United States senator from Wisconsin organized a national demonstration to raise awareness about environmental issues. Rallies took place across the country and, by the end of the year, the U.S. government had created the Environmental Protection Agency. By 1990, Earth Day was an event celebrated by more than 140 countries around the globe.
The Dylan Amsterdam believes that good hospitality should be combined with attention for our surroundings. We acknowledge that our industry inevitably impacts the environment and our society and we try to minimize this as much as possible. Therefore, The Dylan Amsterdam collaborates with Earth Water. This water is served in the restaurant, can be found in minibars and the fitness room. Earth Water donates a 100% of their net profit to finance water projects for a better world.
Next to the collaboration with Earth Water, The Dylan Amsterdam works with local products, for example, Dutch cheeses from De Kaaskamer, Lobster, Oysters and seaweed from the Oosterschelde and Tomasu Soy Sauce made in Rotterdam. And the most sustainable way to discover Amsterdam is by bike. Our Roetz bikes are handmade in Amsterdam and made from materials that got a second chance and are available for guests to use.
