The Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC), which is a LEED® Gold certified facility, marked Earth Day 2022 by announcing a ban on single-use plastic bottles throughout the facility.  

Levy Restaurants, the LACC’s exclusive food and beverage partner, has replaced single-use plastic bottles with aluminum bottles in cafés and catering operations. Beverages sold in the Center’s vending machines have followed suit.

 

Sustainability doesn’t always have to be hard for hotels. It can sometimes be soft. And we mean that literally. When the Best Western Avita Suites wanted to find homes for 200 of their gently used pillows and cases they were replacing, they reached out to Discover Torrance for assistance.

 

This year’s Oscars broke new ground, and, no, we’re not talking about the slap heard round the world. Some six months after it opened in September 2021, the Academy of Motion Pictures hosted the inaugural Oscars Night at the Museum. More than 1,000 guests attended the sold-out Oscars viewing part, beginning with a walk down the red carpet in their own version of pre-show glamour.
