In 2018 we partnered with Zeus Living, a company that provides fully furnished homes tailored for modern professionals.

All of Zeus’ homes are stocked with complimentary Public Goods products that help guests enjoy a healthy, eco-friendly experience.

When Zeus officially expanded into Seattle, we celebrated by providing their guests — as well everyone who lives in or visits the Emerald City — with some ecotourism recommendations. If you love learning about sustainability and going beyond the typical tourist attractions, check out at least one of these places.

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center

After you tour the Space Needle and MoPOP, take a short walk across the street to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center. This free interactive exhibit illustrates how the Gates Foundation has provided health care and sustainable technology to impoverished communities around the world. The building also hosts a gallery of activist art and inspiring messages from foundation supporters.

Mount Rainier National Park

If you have time to double back during your stay, plan an excursion to Mount Rainier National Park. Its beauty will leave you in awe.

If you want to help preserve Native American culture and history in Seattle, visit the Suquamish Museum. Designed by Mithun architecture, the building has sustainable features such as a LEED certification, water conservation infrastructure and natural materials. To reach the exhibit, take a ferry across the bay.

Eat at a FareStart Restaurant or Cafe

FareStart is an organization that combats poverty, homelessness and hunger by donating food to shelters and providing food service jobs. If you eat at a restaurant associated with FareStart, you won’t only be feeding yourself.

Conserving marine life is a crucial aspect of practicing sustainability. To do your part, donate to the Seattle Aquarium. If not for the good of the planet, do it for the adorable otters and puffins in their highlighted enclosures.
