Sustainability is a journey and not a destination

Long Beach Lodge Resort believes in - and acts on - the philosophy that it's all of our responsibility to leave this planet in better shape for the future generations than we found it.


 

Resort construction, maintenance and upkeep and our relationship with our many guests, suppliers and associates is underpinned by an understanding that we can always improve on how we perform tasks, purchase supplies and interact and impact the environment. This is reflected in most areas of Resort operations, from the kitchen in the Great Room to water conservation measures to housekeeping: becoming a green hotel is ongoing, it is a journey and not a destination.


New Initiatives Around the Property...

  • Electrical Vehicle Charging Station: In late 2015 an electric vehicle charging station was installed for use by our guests.

  • LED Light Bulbs: The Resort is currently making the transition to LED light bulbs throughout the property.

  • Strawless by Earth Day: Our Food & Beverage team committed to eliminate the use of plastic straws by Earth Day 2016. A 100% biodegradable straw option is available if a straw is requested.


Water Conservation...

Tofino, like the rest of British Columbia, is faced with the on-going prospect of declining rainfall and warmer temperatures. This is especially pertinent in Tofino where we look to the skies for most of our water as our water supply comes almost exclusively from a rain, creek and river-replenished reservoir.

While the lush, beautiful rainforests and landscape in Tofino and Pacific Rim National Park Reserve suggest otherwise, fresh water is a finite resource which we at Long Beach Lodge Resort work hard to preserve through Resort-initiated activities and monitoring and by observing all district water-conservation directives.


Being Prepared and Responsible

The Resort recognizes and endorses efforts and innovations that ensure there is enough water throughout the year. The Long Beach Lodge Resort Sustainability Committee includes representatives from every department at the Resort. The Committee meets every month to discuss Resort’s water conservation activities and progress and debate new management ideas and activities, such as capturing rainwater and grey water in holding tanks for use in toilets and laundry facilities. Innovations such as this allow incremental savings that can add up to big benefits for the environment, residents and visitors to Tofino and Pacific Rim National Park Reserve.
