AT THE 2400 MOTEL
At the 2400 Motel, we strive to minimize our carbon footprint and provide our guests with green amenities. We are always looking at opportunities through both our exterior and interior spaces, and will update this page as we have more to tell!
Stay tuned for our next green initiatives.
FreeGarden™ Rain rain barrels were installed at the 2400 Motel to help conserve rain water and to protect the environment.
Enviro World provides cost effective, high quality environmental containers, and expertly designed and supported waste diversion programs and green initiatives to municipalities and governments.
The 2400 Motel strives to reduce single-use plastics wherever possible, and is constantly seeking opportunities to transition to reusable items. As part of the transition, we have recently replaced the single-size bath toiletries with full-size dispensers.
In order to remain committed to the environment, we decided to use eco friendly towels that are quickly dry and recycled microfiber sheets that are 100% recycled polyester certified by the Global Recycled Standard (GRS).
To further our green initiatives, we have sourced eco-friendly flooring for our rooms and suites and have already begun upgrading them. Using sustainable flooring reduces our carbon footprint in a simple, yet effective way. This flooring option is PEFC certified, and is a low emissions product.
Our partners at Booking.com awarded us the Travel Sustainable Badge!
The program has been created to encourage the travel industry to act more sustainably and to make it easier for travelers to make sustainable booking choices. We are constantly working to ensure our company is more environmentally friendly, and it’s wonderful to be recognized for our efforts.
Our pledge commits us to do our part to reduce our impact on the environment, raise awareness about the importance of sustainable tourism to travelers, and help them make more sustainable travel choices.
The interior, exterior, and back of the house lighting has been upgraded to LED.
LED lighting will significantly increase energy efficiency at the Motel, as lighting consumes a large portion of the Motel’s energy. In turn, energy consumption (from lighting) and carbon footprint will be lowered immediately.
The Earth Tempo line uses gentle 100% paraben-free formulas which protect the water and waste streams. Soaps contain pure vegetable base with accessories packaged in recycled paper containing natural soy inks. To give nature an extra boost, this green line has blended the tubes and caps with a non-toxic compound known as, Envo-Clean® which biodegrades in a typical landfill.
In order to reduce water usage at the motel, Ecofitt recently replaced all of our faucets and showerheads.
We installed two electric vehicle charging stations from ChargerQuest for anyone to use. Either charge your electric vehicle while staying at the 2400 Motel, or charge your vehicle while exploring the Collingwood neighborhood.
