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:
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.
All our units are equipped with recycling bins and ask our guests to recycle the following:
- 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.
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.
In the summer months we line-dry our sheets, which uses less energy and less chemicals.
