Our Commitment to being Green

At Lido Motel, we are very concerned about the health of the planet and do what we can to lessen our environmental footprint. We accomplish this is the following ways:

Solar Panels

We generate our own electricity thanks to solar panels installed on the roof of one of the motel buildings, which reduces our reliance on hydro-electric power. Any surplus of this clean and renewable energy that we generate is purchased by BC Hydro and fed back into the electrical grid.

Recycling

All our units are equipped with recycling bins and ask our guests to recycle the following:

  • Newspaper/Magazine/Cardboard
  • Tin/Aluminum cans
  • Plastics #1-6 (but no Styrofoam even though it’s marked #6)
  • Glass (food/beverage containers only)
  • Grocery bags

Please clean and rinse your recyclables before putting them in the bins.

Green cleaning supplies

Our cleaning products do not contain phosphates, acids or solvents. They are non-corrosive, non-flammable and non-toxic.

Pesticide-free

The Lido Motel’s greenspaces are maintained without the use of pesticides or herbicides. Dandelions are hand pulled and the landscaping is left as natural as possible.

Line-drying

In the summer months we line-dry our sheets, which uses less energy and less chemicals.
