Lakeside Inn Goes Green For Big Blue

April 13, 2016

Did you know it takes three gallons of water to clean a pound of laundry generated by a hotel? There are roughly three pounds of linens per room, and about the same weight in towels per guest. Multiply that by over one hundred rooms and you arrive at 3,000 gallons per day! Based on this, Lakeside Inn has implemented a towel and linen reuse program called Go Green For Big Blue, which allows guests to choose to reuse their towels and linens instead of having them changed every day of their stay. Guests receive a $5 dining certificate for each night housekeeping is declined (except day of departure) during their stay.

It is estimated by The American Hotel and Lodging Association that reusing towels and linens reduces the number of loads of laundry washed, as well as the related water, sewer, and energy by 17%.  Decreasing the amount of laundry is critical in conserving water and also reduces the amount of detergents going into the environment and polluting our water systems.

Green Bucks

Based on a recent survey, more than 75% of travelers feel it's important that their visits not damage the environment and consider active protection of the environment to be part of a hotel’s responsibility. Lakeside Inn takes this responsibility to protect our environment and natural resources seriously by partnering with local environmental protection groups. Upon check-in, guests are offered the opportunity to join our efforts to maintain and improve the beauty of Lake Tahoe through the Green Bucks program with a $1 donation.

Green Bucks is a win-win for residents and visitors. The program, along with the Tahoe Fund and the Truckee River Watershed Council, creates a simple way for those who love this area to make it even better by helping to care for our extraordinary environment.

Proceeds from the Green Bucks program support:

  • Miles of hiking, biking and ADA-accessible trails
  • Access for swimming, kayaking, canoeing and stand-up paddle boarding
  • Open spaces for wildlife habitats and scenic views
  • Restoration of rivers, lakes, meadows, wetlands, and forests
  • Protection of fish and wildlife habitats
  • Boating and fishing access
  • Landscaping and trail re-alignment to prevent runoff
  • Signage and interpretive displays to guide visitors
  • Rabe Meadow Bike Path
