Hampton Inn & Homewood Suites West Loop Celebrate Earth Week

In celebration of Earth Week, the hotel’s Promise Committee partnered with Openlands and the students of Morrill Math and Science Elementary School to plant three trees around the elementary school grounds. The money used to plant and feed the trees was raised by the Promise Committee during 2017’s Earth Week, donating $1500 to Openlands, an organization that protects the natural and open spaces of northeastern Illinois and the surrounding region to ensure cleaner air and water, protect natural habitats and wildlife, and help balance and enrich our lives.

The trees were named Bud, Lewis, and Dottie as one tree had several little buds ready to sprout, another Lewis - for Lewis the Duck the Homewood Suites mascot, and Dottie as she had speckled bark.

A big thank you to our Promise Committee, volunteers, and all that supported the hotel’s Earth Week efforts!
