Hosted by ESPN National Correspondent Michele Steele, episode two of this new six‑part series showcases solar rooftop cooking in Washington, D.C. and sustainable wine and beer production in Portland, Oregon and Cusco, Peru

MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton has released the latest installment of its new “Extending Our Stay” video docuseries, which is focused on sustainable travel and creating meaningful change in the world as part of the company’s “Travel with Purpose” environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy.

Episode two, titled “Eating & Drinking More Sustainably,” documents the importance of eating local, knowing where your food comes from, and showcasing how that knowledge can impact your carbon footprint. Featuring leaders in the food and beverage space who are experimenting with untraditional production (like solar cooking on a hotel rooftop in Washington, D.C.) and sourcing methods to drive change in their industries, the episode answers common questions for travelers and consumers alike.

“Extending Our Stay” is hosted by ESPN National Correspondent and global traveler Michele Steele, and produced in partner with Likeable Media, a New York-based media and production agency. The series highlights and explores some of the world’s biggest environmental challenges — food waste, eating and drinking more sustainably, plastics, water, community support and more. The episodes are told from the point of view of subject matter experts, thought leaders, and those who are directly impacted by our changing world.

Additional episodes will be released monthly through April 2022 and will be supplemented with additional photography and information for consumers and travelers alike. To learn more about the project and to watch all episodes, visit extendingourstay.com.
