Ovolo Hotels Go Vegetarian

By Cassandra Yany

Ovolo Hotels announced Thursday– which was World Vegetarian Day— that all of its restaurants and bars in Australia and Hong Kong will move to completely vegetarian menus for the next year. This initiative has been termed “The Year of the Veg” and makes the hotel group the first in the world to eliminate meat from its menus.

Ovolo Founder and CEO, Girish Jhunjhnuwala, said, “We want to be conscious about what we are consuming and practice environmental sustainability as best as we can, as this leads to a larger impact on humanity, not just the environment.”

These venues include:

  • Monster Kitchen & Bar at Ovolo Nishi in Canberra, AU- New Executive Chef Paul Wilson will implement his experience in internationally renowned kitchens to create a sophisticated vegetable-forward menu.
  • ZA ZA TA at Ovolo the Valley in Brisbane, AU- Managed by Israeli-born chef Roy Ner, formerly of Nour and Lilah in Sydney
  • Mister Percy at Ovolo 1888 Darling Harbour in Sydney, AU- This location will be transformed into a vegetarian Italian wine bar.
  • Komune at Ovolo Southside in Hong Kong- The location is cutting meat from its menus, and the hotel will soon debut a new restaurant that will be fully vegetarian, as well.

Other locations such as Alibi Bar & Kitchen at Ovolo Woolloomooloo in Australia and New Zealand, and Veda at Ovolo Central in Hong Kong will continue with their vegan and vegetarian menus, respectively. 

In addition to moving fully vegetarian, Ovolo has already taken numerous other steps to implement eco-friendliness in their hotels. The hotel collection has eliminated single-use plastic bathroom amenities and replaced them with re-fillable, tamper-free pump bottles that are HDPE recyclable, eliminated single-use plastic straws, introduced reusable woven bags for slippers, and began using biodegradable materials in all laundry bags and packaging.

Elyptol Sanitizers Clean × Heal

Elyptol is the first Type 1 eco-certified and professionally registered hand sanitizer. It harnesses the healing properties of eucalyptus oil and naturally-sourced pure ethanol to bring you a product that sanitizes in a healthy and eco-friendly way. Despite its gentle feel, make no mistake that this hand sanitizer is FDA listed and hospital grade.

To Kill Germs Gently, Think Naturally with Elyptol

The sanitizer kills 99.99997% of germs with 70% alcohol. It contains eucalyptus oil and pure ethanol derived from sugar cane to eliminate germs gently and safely. And, it uses botanical food grade ethanol and eucalyptus ingredients that are known for soothing and healing aching bones and irritated skin.

Not only is Elyptol antibacterial, but it is antimicrobial as well. For this reason, it kills a wider range of germs.

“The perfect synergy of science and nature,” notes the company on their front page. “Elyptol harnesses nature’s strengths to create skincare and hard surface hygiene products that effectively kill germs harmful to your health.”

About Elyptol:

The USA/Australian company takes its natural inspiration from those putting their lives on the line for us every day. Elyptol founder Tim O’Connor recognized just how much health care workers used sanitizers when his daughter was born. These hospital grade formulas wreaked havoc on their hands. With years of extensive research and development using green chemistry, Elyptol became the first Type 1 eco-certified and professionally registered hand sanitizer. It expertly pairs eucalyptus oil, known for its healing properties, and natural sanitizing ingredient pure ethanol, derived from sugarcane and corn. The result is an efficient formula that eliminates germs, yet it’s gentle enough on skin and safe for the environment.

Pitbull × Wyland × National League of Cities

Wyland kicks off his 9th nationwide campaign for conservation August 1 in support of Water Quality Month. The program, which was postponed in April due to coronavirus, encourages residents across America to make small changes in their lives to better manage our water resources and improve the health of our ocean, lakes, rivers, streams, and wetlands. Conservation partners this year include Pitbull, mayors across the country and the National League of Cities among others.

“It’s more important than ever to maintain smart habits that support the health of the world around us — especially when it comes to our water and air, “ said marine-life artist and conservationist Wyland. “If Covid has taught us anything, it’s that we can change behaviors for the benefit of everybody.”

Participants can win thousands in eco-friendly prizes at www.mywaterpledge.com starting August 1.

Wyland is available for interviews as is Wyland Foundation President, Steve Creech.

Everyone is invited to share how they are doing their part with hashtag #mywaterpledge. Examples include:

* I use cloth shopping bags instead of plastic. #mywaterpledge
* Instead of plastic water bottles, I switched to reusable containers. #mywaterpledge
* I helped clean up my local beach this weekend! #mywaterpledge
* I biked to the store instead of using my car. #mywaterpledge #airquality

About the National Mayors’ Challenge for Water Conservation

The annual Wyland National Mayors’ Challenge for Water Conservation will relaunch in August as part of national water quality month, Aug. 1-30. The program, which was postponed in April due to coronavirus, encourages residents across America to make small changes in their lives to better manage our water resources and improve the health of our ocean, lakes, rivers, streams, and wetlands.

Presented nationally by the Wyland Foundation, the campaign rewards residents who take part with a chance to win $3,000 toward their home utility bills, home irrigation makeovers, environmentally friendly cleaning products, and hundreds more eco-friendly prizes. Residents can also nominate a deserving charity in their city to receive a 2020 new-generation Toyota Highlander Hybrid XLE. Cities with the most residents that make pledges qualify for over $50,000 in prize drawings. Residents make their pledges online at www.mywaterpledge.com throughout the month of August.

Encouraging Green Living

In the wake of the current pandemic, the campaign will provide residents with more opportunities to get involved safely from home, including making water-friendly lifestyle changes on behalf of their city, undertaking home-based environmental projects that add up to cleaner, safer communities, and sharing tips and strategies with friends and neighbors. Last year, mayors from 39 states encouraged residents to make more than 740,000 pledges to promote drought resiliency, protect watersheds, and reduce stress on aging water infrastructure.

“It’s more important than ever to maintain smart habits that support the health of the world around us — especially when it comes to our water and air, “ said marine life artist and conservationist Wyland. “If Covid has taught us anything, it’s that we can change behaviors for the benefit of everybody.”

Green Homeschooling

Despite school closures, teachers working remotely are also encouraged to engage their students to take part by accessing a special section of the website to make a series of water-saving commitments with their classes and win classroom supplies and gift cards for their school.

Partners

The non-profit campaign, which has included numerous live events, educational tours, and hundreds of city-led activities over the past decade, is presented in association with The Toro Company, EPA WaterSense, National League of Cities, Conserva Irrigation, and Earth Friendly Products (makers of ECOS) and PETAL (withpetal.com sustainable personal care products which reduce waste and take the dirt out of clean.) The Challenge encourages residents to follow their city’s progress throughout the month and to use that information to encourage friends, neighbors, businesses, and civic groups to get involved.

2020 GREEN GOOD DESIGN

Sustainability award for the Rado True Thinline Leaf

Rarely have the award and the prize winner been better suited to each other: our emerald green Rado True Thinline Leaf was presented with the prestigious GREEN GOOD DESIGN Award by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. Under the motto “Build a better world now”, the coveted award honours outstanding architecture and product designs that leave a lasting impression with their “green” concept.

The Green Good Design Award 2020 went to our True Thinline Leaf. Made from hightech ceramic, this timepiece features a green iridescent mother-of-pearl dial with a delicate leaf structure embossed on the underside. As a result of the creative partnership with Grandi Giardini Italiani, an organisation dedicated to preserving extraordinary Italian gardens, this line celebrates the interplay of design and nature.

The creation of each individual watch is just as unique as its dial. Years of research culminated in the True Thinline’s ground breaking monobloc ceramic case – a neverbefore-seen type of case construction featuring solid ceramic with no need for a stainless steel core. This not only gave the True Thinline its extreme lightness and super slim silhouette, but it also paved the way for new design possibilities.

This year’s edition of the GREEN GOOD DESIGN AWARD focused on the world’s most important new products, buildings, construction and planning projects, whose sustainable and environmentally friendly design is pioneering. We are therefore particularly pleased that our vision of a “natural” timepiece has been appreciated by such a prestigious organisation.

About Rado

Rado is known as the Master of Materials for the way it has revolutionised traditional watchmaking, leading the industry by introducing high-tech ceramic, ultra-light high-tech ceramic, colourful high-tech ceramic and Ceramos to its design-led collections. An award-winning designer with numerous prestigious international prizes to its name, and considered the most forward-thinking design player in the watch industry today, Rado has always been a pioneer and leader, setting the standard and raising the bar.

About GOOD DESIGN™

GOOD DESIGN™ is a prestigious, recognised, and longstanding design award program organised annually by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. The trademarked awards were founded in Chicago in 1950 by renowned architects Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr.

MEET THE MASTERMIND of Good Vibe Gliders – Gabe Majalca

  1. What is your main source of passion that led to creating custom-designed artistic scooters?

I’ve always had a creative spirit that most likely stems from my mom, who was an event and party decorator. In my late teens, I worked for the costume shop at the Gaslight Theatre in Tucson, AZ. Around that same time, my dad gifted me with his 1977 El Camino Classic. I loved TV shows like Overhaulin’ and Pimp My Ride. Naturally, I started spending time customizing my El Camino with my Dad, creating custom upholstery at the costume shop. I rocked blue-tinted glasses all the time and wore my hair all funky. It was cool that I had parents who let me figure myself out in that way. I never felt impeded. But then I went to college and life changed from muscle cars to academia. While in college, my design eye flourished. My frat room was a pretty ridiculous sight to see. The room and loft resembled all the colors featured on a Buzz Lightyear. My room was Star Command, complete with black and white checkered tile, cosmic blue walls, bright orange curtains, red trimming, clouds on the roof, and of course, glow-in-the-dark stars. It was just cool.

I was always out there with the things I wanted to do, and it was cool that I found a way to do them.

  1. What motivated you to focus on scooter products rather than another form of transportation?

The reason for the electric scooter is a direct result of my experience at camping festivals. At the first-ever Good Vibe Getdown (the company name is a forever homage to this festival), I set up my camp way too far from everybody else. Although it was the most beautiful spot onsite (right on the banks of Apache Lake) it took FOREVER to walk back and forth. A bicycle wouldn’t work because you still have to exert energy and I was not about that life. So, I thought of the most effective form of transportation at a camping festival: an electric scooter. I bought an e-scooter and decorated it entirely in jewels. When we got to Good Vibe 2 that next year, I didn’t even get to ride it. It was a smashing success. I remember seeing grown men fight over the chance to ride it next. That’s when I realized, “Wow, people are loving this. No one has ever really seen anything like this before.” My Gliders are fun, exaggerated, over-the-top, extra in every way, shape, & form, and instantaneously make you the center of attention. That’s crazy. You honestly can’t help but be the center of attention when a scooter looks like that. Put a Good Vibe Glider next to a regular scooter, and the answer is simple.

Lastly, there’s an element of luck to which I give credit. It turned out to be perfect timing to start decorating scooters because no more than a year later, rideshare scooters started popping up all over my city. I didn’t start GVG because of the scooter trend. I started GVG because it helped direct my creative energy in a positive way, and soon I had a fleet and started helping my friends run their festivals more efficiently.

  1. What was the first festival where you chose to implement the gliders and why did you choose that specific one?

Good Vibe 2 is where I had my ah-ha moment, but Good Vibe 3 was full-on intentional. I designed and created one Glider for the festival coordinator and made two more Gliders for the festival attendees to glide around on. I even built a charging station in the middle of the desert so that when the batteries got low, riders would pull up and plug in their scooters. It was very cool to see my vision come to life: homies helping homies hold it down, faster, stronger, and more efficiently.

  1. How did your past design experience help you succeed in producing these Good Vibe Gliders?

As you know, I’ve always had it in me. My early work at the Gaslight Costume Shop, helping produce costumes and props was pivotal. I had great direction and instruction from two of the best designers in the business, MaryAnne and Renee. Most of my designer confidence came out of working with them.

  1. How have Festival Event staff and Coordinators reacted to their use of gliders?

Simple: they lose their freakin‘ minds. They can’t get enough of it. If they didn’t understand it before they definitely understood it after. It’s cool being the guy with the electric scooters because there are so many instances at a festival where you need to get somewhere quickly. So many situations – medical assistance, needing to find somebody or lost equipment. Other times, equipment needs to be transported long distances without access to a truck. I’ve been able to directly help those folks just by having a scooter present. There was this one stagehand at Juniper Jam who said, “Seriously, I don’t ever want to do another festival without one of these things. Can you go talk with my boss please?”

  1. Do you have any plans to expand your market for these scooters? And if so, how will you do so?

If you’d asked me this about five months ago, my answer would have been much more different. Because of the virus, the hospitality industry took a huge hit and people are definitely not riding electric scooters like they used to. These days GVG has naturally expanded into accessories. Not long after I made my first Glider did people start asking me to bedazzle and theme other stuff, as well. By no means are we leaving the bedazzled PEV market, that’s our bread and butter. However, I also consider us lucky to have an alternative direction to pivot. I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how well-received my Good Vibe Shine Goggles have been. Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award Winner George Clinton even rocks a pair.

  1. Do you work with or have any plans to work with any non-profit, community service, or charity organizations?

More than ever, we are willing to work with community and charity organizations to help make an impact on the lives of others. Last month, we sponsored a 24-hour Virtual Festival fundraiser featuring 24 DJs, 8 live artists, and 4 workshops. Our fundraiser achieved over $1,500.00.

Earlier this year, Sprinkles (the 360 Glider made by Good Vibe Gliders) lent a helping hand at the AIDS Walk Arizona 2020. My neighbor Nancy is one of the event coordinators and was amazed by Sprinkles! Right before the event, Nancy sprained her knee and was scheduled to undergo surgery the following week. She was depressed about the situation and bummed to think she wouldn’t be of much use at the event. However, once we offered her the Glider, her frown turned upside down and she killed it. She still thanks me to this day.

  1. What would you say is the greater purpose of selling these glider products?

Generating pure happiness. What’s most amazing to me is that we have a product that genuinely creates happiness in the minds of the rider. It’s something I see every time, whether the scooter belongs to you or not. The first time you sit on a Glider, the next 15 seconds of your life is bliss. You forget about absolutely everything. The rider smiles uncontrollably, scootin’ and zippin’ around, like, “oh my gosh, I totally forgot how awesome scooters are!” They are childlike once again, if only for a few moments, and that’s unbelievable to me. In every project, our goal is to produce something the customer won’t just like, but something they will love.

  1. How did you assemble your team of glider creators together?

Most of my co-creators stem from the amazing group of artists I met during the Good Vibe Getdown years. These guys & gals are creative juggernauts, powerhouses at their trade, and a driving force that can’t be stopped. I quickly realized the more I worked with other artists, the better my final product would be. Soon, other artists started taking interest. I would bring a Glider with me almost everywhere I went. Artists saw what I was doing and often would say, “Oh – you’re weird and unique; Here’s what I do, I bet we can collaborate together.” And just like that, I create friends. My products are generating work for local artists with tangible, green-in-their-pocket work. So as sales began to pick up and people started trusting the GVG brand, I could keep my artists happy based on the rate I charge my clients. Collaboration is now baked right into our business model. More so, I really like showcasing other artists. I want to show people what they can do – and if you like their work, you can work with them specifically to design yourself a custom Glider.

  1. Are these scooters just meant for festivals or are any other parties interested in buying them?

Our Gliders are made for any reason at all. We cater to large events because of our festival roots, but your Glider can be absolutely anything you want it to be. We love getting wild, so go wild! Scooters are no longer fringe transportation; people use them all the time so it’s much easier to pitch a decorated scooter to just about any industry and event. Gliders are perfect for expos, conventions, street fairs, tailgates, food trucks, personal use, business marketing, festivals & production, sports & teams, schools & clubs, weddings & gifts, restaurant & service industry, festivals & production, fairgrounds, business retreats, birthdays, schools & church, parties, etc.

On a personal note, back in November, I was married to my best friend, Addie. Our wedding was three days long, hosted at the base of the Bulldog Buttes at Saguaro Lake Guest Ranch. That place is gorgeous, and sprawling. Hands down, the most incredible weekend of my life! But I can tell you this: without a doubt, if we didn’t have the Gliders there, many things would not have worked out. The unexpected need to get from one side of the property to the other was anticipated, but little did I know these Gliders would play such a major role in getting us out of some tight situations.

What is HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) sheet? 

High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is probably the most widely used plastic sheet. Think about the toy trucks and storage containers, all these products are made from HDPE. This thermoplastic is known for being light and strong. Most companies are going for HDPE plastic sheets because they can reduce the material used to manufacture and package products because of their ideal weight and strength. 

Why HDPE is popular?

HDPE is the perfect substitute for heavier materials. No wonder, many companies that are going for sustainable business models, such as reduction of material used in packaging prefer using HDPE. Below are more benefits of HDPE:   

  • It’s lightweight. Although products made up of HDPE are lightweight, they are very strong. This is the reason why car manufacturers use it to improve fuel efficiency by having lighter cars.
  • HDPE is impact resistant. Plastic toys and other products are not affected when you drop them because they have great impact resistance. 
  • It’s long-lasting. Products made of HDPE last long because it’s weather-resistant and also resists mildew, mold, insects, and rotting. 
  • Malleability. HDPE can be molded into any shape, meaning you can have a customized product that meets your expectations.   

Major benefits of HDPE

While most people use other plastics like polypropylene and polyester, HDPE has become the most popular plastic. This is not only because it’s versatile, but it’s also one of the most recycled plastics. It can be recycled in its rigid forms such as containers and flexible forms like plastic bags. You can get more information by visiting http://www.regal-plastics.com/hdpe-high-density-sheet/.   

HDPE sheet is resistant to stain, moisture, and odor, making it suitable for use in the manufacturing and food processing industry. It’s also an ideal substitute for wood and metal because it’s chemical resistant, it has high impact strength, easy to clean, easily machined or fabricated, and it’s cost-effective. Besides, the HDPE sheet has a natural color that is FDA approved.  

Applications of HDPE 

HDPE sheet comes in two colors, which are black and natural and are available with smooth and textured finishes. HDPE is used in various applications, and you might have used a product made from it without realizing it. Some of the applications that use HDPE include piping systems, milk jugs, fuel tanks, shampoo bottles, hard hats, water bottles, and bread bags. 

As you can see, it’s used in a wide range of industries. Therefore, next time you find a plastic product, look at the bottom to find out if it has a recycle 2 which indicates that it has HDPE.  

Sustainability

Thankfully, HDPE is recyclable, and in this way, it prevents landfills. Nearly, most of the recycling programs accept HDPE products, such as bottles. Recycled HDPE is also as popular and versatile material as its counterpart. You can use it in most of the same applications mentioned above. Some of the other key uses include recycled plastic storage containers, recycled plastic automobile parts, recycled plastic outdoor furniture, and recycled plastic trash cans, recycled bins, and compost bins.

Sustainable Vacation Planning: Tips and Tricks

Americans aren’t great at planning vacations. So much so that a large tourism industry group, the U.S. Travel Association, is encouraging workers to begin planning their getaways on Jan. 28, dubbed National Plan for Vacation Day

But planning a sustainable vacation – one with a small environmental footprint that is respectful of a destination’s people and culture – is an even taller task, said Jonathon Day, an associate professor in The School of Hospitality and Tourism Management in the College of Health and Human Sciences at Purdue University.

Jonathon Day, chair of the Travel Care Code initiative and author of the book, “An Introduction to Sustainable Tourism and Responsible Travel,” provided these tips for making vacations more socially and environmentally friendly:

Shop local: “Visit local businesses and enjoy authentic experiences from your destination. Visiting farm-to-table restaurants, local arts-and-crafts stores and farmers markets all make a bigger contribution to the communities you visit.”

Be waste wise: “Bring your best habits from home. Plan to recycle and minimize waste, particularly plastic waste when you travel.”

Limit your carbon footprint: “Be a fuel-efficient traveler or purchase carbon offsets for those flights you are taking.”
