SUSTAINABLE HOSPITALITY - MADE EASY
LivClean's EcoStay Program offers hotels and their guests the opportunity to take responsibility for their environmental impact. Make every guest's stay completely carbon neutral and good for the planet when you support nature-based conservation projects that capture and store greenhouse gases through planting trees and protecting mature-growth forests.
Plus, our unique EcoFunding model means your hotel can raise funds in support of your own net-zero initiatives, for even more emission reduction and cost savings. Make your guests' stay meaningful and engaging by balancing the impact of their stay.
Started in 2008, the EcoStay Program was developed in collaboration with hospitality industry leaders in response to the sustainable business movement. As a leading sustainable tourism organization, we emphasize transparency in everything we do, setting bold goals and pursuing a clear strategy that seeks to restore environmental balance. We are constantly growing and adapting to the changes in the way people choose to travel, and invite you to learn more about how you can make an impact. Working to recognize the needs of your business, EcoStay promises to deliver both savings and sustainability. We believe in doing business in a way that puts more back into the environment, society, and the bottom line than it takes out. EcoStay is a division of LivClean Corp, a top-ranked carbon offset retailer by the David Suzuki and Pembina Institute’s worldwide ranking. We work in partnership with Best Western (Endorsed Supplier), Green Key Global, Alberta Hotel & Lodging Assoc., and Emerald Brands
HOW IT WORKS
1. Your hotel adds an EcoFee to every guest's room night. You choose the amount from $1 to $10.
2.Your hotel keeps 25% of the collected EcoFees for efficiency upgrades that reduce your carbon footprint and your operating costs.
3. You remit the rest of the collected funds to LivClean and we buy offsets from carbon-capturing forestry projects on your behalf.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
DO MORE GOOD
EcoStay pools member hotel contributions and makes significant investments in forestry conservation projects that capture global carbon emissions. You and your guests become part of a powerful movement to reduce the effects of climate change through collective action.
Our unique EcoFunding model offers your hotel up to 25% of your collected EcoFees as a rebate for your own efficiency upgrades. Now you can start on all those cost saving upgrades. The average hotel earns $10,000 every year in EcoFunding. Case studies show year-over-year operating cost reductions and lower carbon emissions.
ENGAGE YOUR GUESTS
Every guest receives a unique planting code for our our virtual forest where they can virtually name a tree, share on social media and learn more about the important role the forests play in the flight against climate change.
