A Deeper Shade of GREEN
Since the new ownership group took over Ocean Village on April 1, 2010, we have begun a number of changes. Some of them to help the environment, some of them to help local economy, some of them to support local charity but all of them to make Tofino and Ocean Village a better place to visit and more sustainable place to vacation.
In consideration of this beautiful place we have installed specialized vacuum assist showerheads and faucet aerators that use 40% less energy and water. We installed new Smart Glass windows in our pool to improve heat retention. Currently we have begun replacing our old propane pool & Jacuzzi heater for a high efficiency heat exchanger. It is estimated it could reduce our propane and energy consumption by up to 60% – AMAZING!
We have just replaced our guest room toiletries and dish soap with the Sea Wench Naturals line. These products are organic, all natural and produced locally. Use of this product in dispensers will also eliminate the use of approximately 15,000 pieces of packaging per year. Yes 15,000!
Most recently we are installing new high efficiency exterior lights with photocells that automatically turn the lights off when not needed.
All of these add up to change we are proud of. This is the start of our journey; we aim to make changes around here that will continue to decrease our ecological footprint.
We love to hear about people making changes in their lifestyle and we’d love to hear yours.
