Greenhouse Nightclub NYC-How green is it!

We've moved into an era of green thinking and thus its only logical to think that our leisure time should be filled with green.
Hopefully there will come a time when to be green will be "just the norm" and accepted.Green Nightclubs,well what are they? It might be a joke in the future as all places will become environmetally friendly.
I guess this is the concept of Jon B the owner of the Greenhouse nightclub in New York City.
Jon says the idea for a green club came to him while sitting on a beach in Miami. "I was trying to think of a good club concept for the next generation," he says. "I think green is cool. And if it's not cool yet, it's going to be cool."
Greenhouse apparently runs on 100% wind power.You might ask yourself...are their wind turbines at the club.No,it runs on a reward scheme.The toilets are low flow and use less water.The floors are made of bamboo and the club is covered in leaves.There is organic 360 Vodka.
Yet we might consider that bamboo has been shipped from China,oh dear not good for the carbon footprint.The beverages are not made locally,oh dear another blow for the carbon footprint and the leaves have been sprayed with a not so environmental fire resistant coating.
Yet its trying to do its bit to make us aware that there are alternatives.I guess it can be difficult to get it totally right.
It might be an idea to consider local options in future and using locally produced resources.
I guess this could be a new beginning of a revoultion in nightclubs.
