The Lodge at Tiburon, an upscale, three-story, 103-room California Craftsman-style hotel near Sausalito, is set among three beautiful acres. The hotel is committed to sustainability, which led them to earn Platinum-level certification with the Green Business Bureau, a national membership organization that uses an online assessment to certify green businesses.
The hotel’s list of green initiatives includes using bulk shampoo, conditioner and body wash dispensers in all their guest rooms, automated paper towel dispensers, CFL bulbs in all guest rooms and an optional linen re-use program in all guest rooms for multi-night guests. Making use of their outdoor space, the hotel built their own herb and vegetable gardens to promote sustainability in their restaurant. They also use local vendors to obtain locally grown products. Along with paper recycling, they separate grease and food leftovers. Sietse Nabben, the General Manager at The Lodge at Tiburon,stated that each of these initiatives has saved The Lodge money, proving that going green is also good for the bottom line.
Green Business Certificationis a talking point for the employees at the hotel front desk who educate their guests about The Lodge’s green strategy. Groups that plan on hosting meetings at The Lodge often inquire about sustainability and Green Business Certification from the Green Business Bureau supports and gives credibility to The Lodge’s actions. In addition, The Lodge has a community partnership with the Angel Island Conservancy and obtained Silver Level Green Listing on Trip Advisor.
