Eco Friendly

Many of our innkeepers have gone to great lengths to ensure that their businesses are "eco friendly". They use cleaning products that are less harmful to the environment and ecologically friendly soaps. They buy locally and use locally grown produce in their food whenever possible. They make many choices small and large to help lessen their impact on the environment, and they do so because they believe it is essential.

To make our place eco friendly we have solar hot water panels, good insulation and sealing with an HRV ventilation system. We are gradually changing light bulbs to LED. (In BC over 90% of our electricity is from renewable sources) We compost and grow a garden. When practical we walk or bicycle to town. Town has recently added water meters so water use has become more of an issue. We have low volume flush toilets and use buried drip irrigation in our garden boxes.

ThistleDown House
Phone: (604) 986-7173
Toll Free: 1-888-633-7173
Green ThistleDown is an internal slogan by which we have lived for many years. Our way is to use products friendly to our air, our water and ourselves, to mostly consume that which is sustainable, to waste as little as we possibly can, to cycle again everything that may have yet another life, and to do these things in an atmosphere of caring and concern. We try our very best to walk gently on the earth, believing that our road is a journey and not a destination.
