Happy Earth Day from the Moonrise Hotel!

The Moonrise Hotel strives to celebrate the Earth every day by operating as an eco-friendly hotel. April 22nd is Earth Day—the perfect time to highlight the sustainability efforts that have made us one of the region’s leading green hotels!

Our eco-friendly initiatives include alternative power to locally sourced foods! We are proud to power our entire Rooftop Terrace Bar and Twilight Room with the energy from over 100 solar panels. Our solar panel roof—the first hotel roof in the country made completely with solar panels—also powers most of the hotel’s top floor and, sometimes, the floor below that!

The Moonrise offers its greenest guests the opportunity to charge their electric vehicles overnight at no cost. Alternative power is one of the keys to keeping our footprint as tiny as can be!

We also employ a property-wide recycling program, even limiting our bottled water usage and utilizing a glass crusher to save space in our recycling bins. Our EclipseRestaurant composts its waste—and donates leftovers to Operation Food Search.

We don’t stop at the doors of the Moonrise, though. Community engagement is important to us, which is why we host, sponsor and participate in a number of green programs throughout St. Louis!

Although the Moonrise loves to give its guests a truly out of this world experience, we also work hard to take care of our home planet—Earth!

Learn more about our sustainability efforts here, and come celebrate Earth Day with the Moonrise!
