Eco Amsterdam part 2

 

As guest contributor for Ethical Hedonist – sustainable couturier Lucy Tammam jets off to the fabulously eco Amsterdam to peruse the plethora of ethical boutiques, stay in sustainable hotels and eat hearty vegan food. Follow her two part adventure on Ethical Hedonist to learn a little about the life of London’s top ethical fashion designer and how she works away from the atelier.

 

 

For the end of my trip, I moved closer to the centre of Amsterdam and checked into the gloriously luxury Albus hotel. Within walking distance from all the must see sites, including the Red light district (not funny) & Sex museum (funny), the terrific yet heart wrenching Anne Frank House and, of course, the cities incredible canals. I was also a hop, skip and a jump away from the wide variety of ethical boutiques stocking hot Dutch designers as well as global eco brands.

The Albus calls itself a “boutique design hotel” and it does not disappoint. The staff are super friendly (surprisingly rare for Amsterdam), the coffee is good, and all the little details are thought of (including fair trade dark chocolate sprinkles for your toast in the morning). Most of all I love that this exclusive hotel has a very clear environmental policy.

And so, with the compulsory boat ride, eating “war fries” (chips covered in satay sauce and onions) and a trip to a “coffeeshop” my short city break in Amsterdam is over. A place I highly recommend for any green traveler.
