We're Green

We are green at Sweet Olive! We're proud to have been recognized as a Green Leader by TripAdvisor. And we are also honored to be the first (and so far, only) Bed & Breakfast in New Orleans to be certified as a green business by LifeCity.

That beautiful, standing-seam metal roof? It should last us another 160 years. But it's also painted white, for maximum energy-efficiency.

We stock our guest bathrooms with Giovanni's "eco chic" shampoo and conditioner. It's made with organic peppermint, rosemary, and eucalyptus (it smells fantastic!) Our signature soaps come from just up the road, made exclusively for us by a local artisan.

Much of our fresh fruits and our baking ingredients (flour, nuts, spices) come from our beloved grocery co-op across the street. And many of our ingredients are Louisiana-grown, just up the road. We are working to minimize our carbon footprint.

And yes - we recycle!
