Yep that’s right! No tiny plastic containers of milk (plus now milk alternatives), No single use sugars and No tea from a metal stick (if you’ve stayed with us before you know what we’re talking about). Not only are we working on updating the hotel interior but we’ve also been working behind the scenes to make these types of changes that we’re passionate about. In our lobby you can now find bulk local tea, bulk sugar, no more plastic cups (hello new dishwasher for us!) and coffee from a local coffee roaster. You’ll see this transition to the rooms as well in the coming weeks as we try to reduce our amount of waste and single-plastic usage.
Next we’re working on our toiletries and also a small local goods based shop in our lobby. Stay tuned!
We love our beautiful backyard of Whistler and we hope to keep it that way for generations to come.
