Staying at a Green Hotel in Whistler

Staying at a Green Hotel in Whistler

If there is one thing that stands out the most during a visit to Whistler, it’s the beauty of the nature that surrounds our mountain town. In the summer, bright blue alpine lakes dot the mountainsides that are covered in lush green forests. In the winter, everything becomes blanketed in soft white snow offering views that will surely take your breath away.

No matter the time of year, evidence of forest creatures comes in the form of footprints on the ground, or even sightings while wandering on the trails, and the fresh mountain air fills your lungs leaving you feeling refreshed.

At the Listel Hotel Whistler, we have a deep appreciation for the nature around us and we take our environmental responsibility seriously! We are proud to hold a 3 Green Key rating from the Hotel Association of Canada. When you stay at the Listel, you can be confident knowing that a low environmental footprint our priority.

Our Initiatives Towards Being a Green Hotel

Bulk Amenities

Approximately 15 years ago, we eliminated individual-use amenities in guest room showers and switched to bulk amenities. 7 years ago, we also eliminated bulk hand soap in guest rooms and opted for refillable dispensers. This initiative allowed us to reduce unnecessary consumption and waste.

Paper Products

About 2 years ago, we switched from regular paper to sugar sheet paper for internal use. Sugar sheet paper is 100% forest-free and is made from the waste fibre produced during sugar cane development.

Water Station

Within the Listel Hotel Whistler, our guests will find a water station that offers delicious Whistler sparkling or still water on demand. These taps allow our guests to stay hydrated and fill reusable water bottles, helping reduce the amount of single-use plastics consumed.

Compost Collection

Around the same time, we implemented guest room and public area compost collecting. This initiative supported the existing composting program already occurring in the Bearfoot Bistro restaurant adjacent to the Listel Hotel.

Smarter Purchasing Choices

When it comes to purchasing products and supplies for the hotel, we ensure we make the greenest choices available to us. When possible, we purchase in bulk and choose eco-friendly and recycled and/or recyclable products.
