Earth Day

Happy Earth Day to all of the BAL Blog Readers; I hope everyone is doing something a little different today to help the environment. And why not continue to do that thing a little different every day for a more long term effect? Here is what we are doing today:

~Some hallway lights will be dimmed for one hour
~Guests will be encouraged to reuse their glassware, towels and sheets
~Staff members are encouraged to walk / ride their bikes to work
~Everyone is reminded to turn off all lights, televisions and other electronics when not in use

We do our best at the hotel to reduce our Carbon Footprint 365 days a year and hope that our efforts encourage others to do the same. The Banff Aspen Lodge has a recycling program in place and low flow toilets / water saving devices are in some washrooms. All guestrooms at the hotel are equipped with Eco-Friendly amenity containers and soaps. These eco bottles are biodegradable and the soaps are made using palm kernel oil, a 100% vegetable soap base. They are made using a renewable resource. Finally; we put quarterly environmental reminders in all guestrooms with little tips / reminders on how we can all do our part to help the environment ~

I read the following quote this morning and think it is a perfect to end this post: "We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children" (Native American Proverb)
