The Pomeroy Inn & Suites brand is committed to making all of our hotels green hotels. Peace River is our home and we want to ensure that we're doing our part to keep it clean for years to come, which is why we are pleased to be rolling out new environmentally friendly initiatives as part of our Take Action, Be Green plan. With our existing efforts and our plans for the future, the Pomeroy Inn & Suites are committed to being among the best green hotels Peace River has to offer. All of our hotels are part of the Green Key program, which rates hotels based on their efforts to be environmentally conscious.

OUR RECYCLING PROGRAM

All of our Pomeroy Inn & Suites guest rooms have been equipped with the blue box program that will help us to collect bottles and other recyable materials. Together we can make a difference!

STAYING GREEN AT OUR HOTELS IN THE PEACE RIVER AREA

Green travel starts long before a guest arrives at our hotel. While we are doing what we can to ensure that our hotels in the Peace River area are as green as possible, here are some tips for our guests to minimize the environmental impact of their trip and stay with us.

BEFORE YOU LEAVE HOME:
Turn water heater to "Vacation" or lowest setting.
Turn off AC/heat or adjust thermostat to protect plants, etc.
Turn water off at outside connection to prevent flooding should a pipe break while you're gone. When you return, turn on the water slowly and check for problems.
Appliances such as TVs and cable converter boxes should be unplugged as they can draw or "leak" up to 40 watts per hour even when they're off.
If your refrigerator has a built-in icemaker, turn it off (lift wire) to prevent flooding should it break while you're away.
Stop your newspaper delivery. It saves paper and means you don't have to worry about a pile of newspapers on your front porch advertising that your house is empty. Some newspapers also have programs where you can donate your paper to a local school while you're away.
WHILE YOU'RE HERE:
To save water keep your showers as short as you can, and don't let the water run while you're brushing your teeth or shaving.
When you leave the room turn off the AC/heat, television, lights, and any other electric devices.
Consider reusing your sheets and towels instead of having them changed every day. As long as your linens are clean you can help cut down on our hotels' water use significantly by reducing unnecessary laundry. Ask at the front desk about how to leave your towels and bedding to avoid having them changed.
Bring your own toiletries rather than using the pre-packaged ones we provide. If you prefer to use ours, please take half-full bottles with you to use on the rest of your trip or at home to cut down on waste.
Give us feedback. Like what we're doing so far? Do you have any ideas on how we can improve our green hotels policy? Let us know - together we can have a positive impact on the Peace River environment.
