Making Friends, Making Energy

Pike's Waterfront Lodge earned a Green Star Award in 2009 and remains committed to reducing waste and our carbon footprint while maintaining the high level of service and comfort our guests know to expect. Through our continual efforts, and with your help, we can continue to improve.

Going Green

Green Star® is a non-profit organization in Alaska that encourages businesses to practice waste reduction, energy conservation and pollution prevention. Some of the steps we've taken to meet their high standards of environmental responsibility include:

  • Using more energy efficient light bulbs.
  • Adjusting dryers to increase efficiency and reduce the dry time.
  • Transitioning from plastics to compostable materials at breakfast service.
  • Using more environmentally-friendly chemicals whenever possible.
  • Recycling paper in our business office and aluminum cans in our gift shop.
  • Installing carpets made of recycled materials.
  • Donating used cooking oil to a bio fuel co-operative.
  • Installing low-flow shower heads that conserve water.
  • Replacing older televisions with more energy efficient flat-screens.

Reducing our carbon footprint is an iterative process; as conditions change, we will add improvements as we can and maintain the excellent level of service for you, our guest, that we can be proud of.
