Dubai might have just gotten its most sustainable home yet.
Not only does the apartment give visitors a personal carbon footprint statement upon checkout, but it's also powered by the sun and fully equipped with eco-friendly appliances to conserve energy.
The Sustainable City, the first fully operational sustainable community in the Middle East, has launched a collection of eco-friendly short-stay studio apartments in Dubai.
These homes allow visitors, residents and international tourists to experience sustainable living and enjoy Dubai with a significantly reduced carbon footprint.
The contemporary studio apartments were conceived with sustainability at the core. The building complex was designed using highly insulated materials and is powered by renewable energy from rooftop solar panels.
To avoid Single-Use Plastics (SUP), the studio-apartments are supplied with filtered drinking water, and to facilitate waste recycling, the homes are equipped with two bins (recyclables and other waste).
The Sustainable Homes are fitted with low flow fixtures, as well as water and energy efficient washing machines. Room cleaning services use environmentally-friendly cleaning products.
To encourage sustainable practices, guests can monitor their water and energy consumption during their stay with an energy metering system.
The Sustainable Homes guests will have access to the urban farm and animal sanctuary along the green spine inside The Sustainable City as well as running and cycling tracks.
Guests can also access the roof of the building which has been converted into a green relaxation area.
