South Lake Tahoe / Carson Valley, NV – Going Green is a matter of opinion and sometimes can be high cost to implement programs and options which serve us toward a better future…
“The vision at the Historian Inn has always been to re-use, recycle and re-vamp” says owner, Deb Pierrel. “It is why we refurbish older buildings. Embracing the past with new, fun and unique services and amenities”
As the Historian Inn is finishing the install of their new in-room flooring made of recycled product, the reviews are in – and they are glowing! Cushy and comfy, easy to maintain and clean and long lasting, too. Leaders in the hospitality industry are taking notice.
Other note-worthy eco-isms are that currently, the Historian Inn [Eddy Street] has the only electric car charger between Bishop and Carson City – and it is free to use! They use mugs instead of to go cups and plastic water glasses, too. You can use a bike to get around town – free! Plus, they offer re-usable water-bottles in room.
The Historian Inn partnered with Green Suites Hotel Solutions who provide solutions that enhance, preserve and promote the environment. It is a perfect match. They provide upscale and soothing personal care amenities that aid in reducing waste while pampering guests with natural, high-quality products in sleek waste-less dispensers. “The positive guest reaction to our new dispensers has been a pleasant surprise,” says Dan Carpenter
We even have a new Be Green and Save Green rate! If a guest chooses no housekeeping, we give them 2% off of their room rate! Of course, to reduce the amount of laundry-related water consumption, housekeepers only change sheets every 3 days, unless asked by guests to do so, too.
And speaking of laundry and cleaning, they even have a device that mixes the laundry chemical with water prior to being introduced into the washer helps save both water and chemical usage.
