Mission-driven luxury hotel brand 1 Hotels and leading lifestyle media company mindbodygreen have partnered for Earth Day. On Saturday, Apr. 22,1 Hotels’ newest property — located in Brooklyn Heights — will celebrate Earth Day with a free-to-the-public mindfulness event. Beyond this event at 1 Hotels’ new flagship property, 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, there will be supporting satellite activations at other 1 Hotel locations including New York City’s Central Park and Miami’s South Beach.
“Every year, the world pays tribute to our planet on Earth Day, utilizing it as an effective advocacy vehicle to build a healthy, sustainable environment, address climate change and protect the Earth for future generations,” said 1 Hotels’ Vice President of Sustainability, Amanda DeSantis. “At 1 Hotels, our core philosophy is that the world around us is beautiful and we want to keep it that way, so it was a natural alignment for us to host this nationwide first event that facilitates awareness of the world’s largest environmental movement.”
Curated by mindbodygreen, the Brooklyn event will host a variety of activities including rooftop yoga led by Los-Angeles based instructor Caley Alyssa, group meditations led by Light Watkins and 1 Hotels’ in-house meditation leader Biet Simkin, astrology readings with Bess Matassa of Mojave Rising and one-on-one sessions with Treatment By Lanshin, a Brooklyn-based wellness studio. Additionally, there will be a musical and visual performance by BELLA GAIA and live panel discussions facilitated by CEO and Founder of mindbodygreen, Jason Wachob around sustainability, which will be livestreamed at www.facebook.com/mindbodygreen.
Brooklyn vendors including Keap, Natchie, Matchaful and Devoción will be selling and sampling locally-made food, beverages, gift items, beauty and wellness products. Additional refreshments will be available for purchase through 1 Hotels, along with local vendors from the new DeKalb Market Hall, opening later this spring including Ample Hills Creamery, Bread & Spread, and Jianbing Company.
“Environmental sustainability is in our DNA at mindbodygreen! We strive to help people live their best life mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally and environmentally,” said CEO and Founder of mindbodygreen, Jason Wachob. “We’re proud to be partnering with 1 Hotels this Earth Day to bring our community together to inspire them with information that will drive action to protect our environment.”
