Green Initiatives
The Old Town Inn prides itself on being an eco-friendly hotel. We’ve made a number of changes to be better stewards of the environment and provide a better guest experience. We view conservation as a partnership. By working together, we can reduce waste and help protect the environment, goals we can all feel good about!
 
Here’s how we’re doing our part:
  • Our hotel uses 100% Green-powered electricity (a mix of hydropower, biomass,  wind, and solar energy).
  • We have a comprehensive recycling program that includes in-room recycling, lobby recycling and back office recycling.
  • We use a wide variety of eco-friendly products. All of our breakfast ware is recyclable, made from renewable resources, or made from 100% post-consumer recycled content. Also, we strive to use as many green cleaning products, soaps and detergents as possible.
  • We are now serving Camp 4 Coffee. It’s local, organic, and it’s our favorite coffee in town! Also, the Luna Vista Decaf is decaffeinated using the Swiss Water process (a method that doesn’t use any harsh chemicals).
  • We’ve implemented a linen and towel re-use program throughout the hotel. By not changing linens and towels unless directed to, we’re reducing our water and energy consumption, as well as reducing the amount of detergents entering our water stream.
  • We’ve switched every incandescent bulb in and around the hotel to either Light Emitting Diodes (LED) or Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFL).

Here are some suggestions for ways you can help:
  • Use in-room recycling bins and the recycling bin in the lobby (cardboard can be brought to the front desk for recycling).
  • Turn off air conditioning/ heating unit while away from your room.
  • Don’t let the water run while brushing your teeth or shaving.
  • Limit the length of your showers.
  • Choose not to replace towels and linens daily.
  • Unplug all electronics when not in use (including chargers because they use electricity even with nothing attached to them).
  • Turn off all lights while away from the hotel room.
