Every day is a Treeday

Treeday is the first green lifestyle guide worldwide and a social network at the same time. The idea behind this new sustainable App is motivating people to live in a more sustainable way and simplify this lifestyle. Members of the Treeday community become “Treeder” and can track the effects of their own lifestyle. What’s that in a nutshell? Treeday visualizes what you actually can’t see: the CO2 you don’t cause anymore because of your eco-friendly deeds, so called „Treeds“. For this purpose the platform translates the saved CO2 into the performance of a tree, thus the amount of carbon dioxide which are filtered by one tree a day. Thereby Treeday creates an imaginary forest for each member of the community which grows with every eco-friendly deed and is shown on a green map. A reward system within the App is expected to encourage the members to act more conscious, more sustainable. When you take the train instead of using the car to get to work for example you get a certain amount of „Treeds“ which can be redeemed with the sustainable partner companies of the green lifestyle guide. The aim of this system is to create 650 billions of virtual trees [...]

Bee humming in Vienna’s green living room: The gardening season is about to start

Staying in the middle of the vibrant city and in the nature at the same time? It’s springtime! Flowers are growing und we cannot wait to open our hotel garden in April. We take a deep breath, lean back, relax and enjoy the nature in our green oasis.

Five tips to go GREEN!

As an utterly green hotel it is our mission to act resource-friendly. With passive house design in our building extension, solar panels & co. our Boutiquehotel Stadthalle achieves a zero-energy-balance. However it is also quite simple to implement an eco-friendly lifestyle @home – often with small means. Thus, we present five useful tips to save energy in one’s own four walls. 1.    It’s the ventilation that matters Even if in winter it is uncomfortably cold it is important to ventilate intensively two times a day. Through it one can maintain a pleasant indoor climate without cooling down the apartment or house – that’s also the reason why you shouldn’t leave the windows tilted the whole day. And don’t forget: Turn down the heating while ventilation! 2.    The thing with the standby mode – you know… Yes, the standby mode on notebooks or TVs is quite handy – one touch of a button and everything is fine. But energy savers know that the tiny red-illuminating lamp is pretty much of an energy guzzler. So it would be better to pull the plugs from time to time or to even use plug connectors which can be switched off. 3.    Kettles for president […]

Upcycling Tip: Creative furniture made of pallets

Sustainability is of prime importance in our green hotel in the center of Vienna. Upcycling has always been an interesting concept for us. Therefore, we want to talk about simple Upcycling Tips in our blog on a monthly basis. Upcycling refers to the repurposing of renewable objects. Objects from everyday life are turned into new objects with a new function. This is how production and subsequently the energy consumption can be dramatically reduced. Today we want to give an Upcycling Tip on how to create creative furniture out of pallets – for both the exterior and the interior.
