Best Western Plus Kamloops Hotel has always operated with sustainability in mind. They are a leader in the Best Western Brand Green Program, and Tim Rodgers, General Manager, has been instrumental in making changes throughout the brand. For example Best Western up until a few years ago did not have a green towel option, but with Tim’s initiative, Best Western now has a green towel program to choose a more environmentally friendly option for towels.
- Tim Rodgers was the first General Manager in Kamloops to have a Green Key rating, which he has continued with every property since then.
- Caring about the local water systems is another area of focus, therefore instead of using dishes that need to be washed in an industrial dishwasher with many chemicals, Best Western Plus Kamloops opts to use biodegradable products in their breakfast room.
- Cleaning guest rooms and public areas they use Lotus Pro, which uses ozonated water to clean and sanitize rooms, they are the first Best Western in BC to do so.The Lotus Pro ensure that any guests who may have perfume allergies will be able to stay without worry
- Tim continues to inspire and search for more areas to improve through sustainability and ensures that each project implemented has sustainability as a focus.
