Paper Free Night Audit Saves Six Trees in 2012!
Bellstar Hotels & Resorts changed to a paper free night audit system in July 2012. This action saved 49,593 sheets of paper & therefore the life of 6 trees. In 2013 we will be able to save 96,476 sheets of paper and 12 trees will remain untouched in the beautiful forests of Canada.
Online Guest Directories – A Super Green Solution!
The change from printed guest directories throughout all Bellstar properties to an online guest directory system,
accessible via cell phone, tabloids or pc’s saved the life of 4 trees and therefore 30,819 sheets of paper.
Bellstar Keeps Planting
Bellstar team members planted 3 trees in 2011 and 4 trees in 2012 to revise our paper consumption. We will continue planting in the future!
