Our Purchasing Policy

As part of ongoing efforts to make Portland a healthier place to live, work and play, the Portland Hawthorne Hostel will work to the extent possible to purchase equipment, materials and products that are recyclable, made of recycled content, reduce waste and/or energy, made of non-toxic ingredients and/or are locally produced.

Guide to our On-Site Sustainability Efforts

The interconnections and processes that make life possible are precious. Our goal is to tread as lightly as possible. As business leaders we are committed to implementing procedures that acknowledge the importance of an ongoing commitment to environmental, socio-cultural and economic responsibility.

Met some awesome people

“For my week long trip, I stayed at Hawthorne Hostel, which was a great experience, especially considering it’s location and under $30/night cost. I met some awesome people traveling from all over the world and we shared plenty of stories.” – Jeff Bronson,
