Green & Clean at our Kelowna Hotel for Earth Day 2013

April 18, 2013 | by Christina Van

Being known as Kelowna’s Green Hotel is something we’re beyond proud of and something we make sure to live up to everyday – after all, every day is considered earth day at our Kelowna hotel.  However, there is one day a year that makes us go even further to do something positive towards improving the environment: Earth Day!

 

This year on April 22nd 2013, our staff will be armed with gloves & garbage bags to take part in The Regional District of the Central Okanagan’s Community Clean Up.  This is a great way for us to make a difference in our community on Earth Day and try to spread the green buzz to our neighboring hotels in Kelowna.

 In addition to being lean-green-cleaning machines on Earth Day in Kelowna, we’ll also be:

-           Turning off unnecessary lights & equipment in offices and public areas and asking guests to help us and do the same in their guestroom

-          Packing our lunches and beverages in re-usable containers

-          Encouraging guests to go paperless and have their stay receipt emailed to them

-          Having an “old cell phone drive” for our staff to bring in their outdated cell phones for recycling

-          Happily answering questions about our green initiatives currently in place at our Kelowna hotel and what we have in mind for the future

 

Some people have green thumbs; we have green hearts!  At the Best Western Kelowna Hotel, Earth Day marks a big celebration of what green efforts we’ve been recognized for and it also challenges us to find new things to do to make a difference in this world!  Join us (and the rest of Canada) by doing something special for Earth Day and see just how green your heart can get.  Yes, that’s a challenge – what are you waiting for?!
