Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association has been busy handing out the hardware this week to some of the top organizations in the industry.

The Kelowna Yacht Club received TOTA’s 2021 Eco Efficiency Excellence Award. The club has been hard at work on its sustainability efforts, attending most TOTA programs about the topic last year, and implemented an internal recycling initiative, participated in the eco efficiency program and created its own “save energy” system.

TOTA also awarded the 2021 Pioneer Award to Best Western Plus Kamloops. The hotel has always operated with sustainability in mind, thanks to the leadership of general manager Tim Rodgers. The hotel has implemented programs like the green towel option, biodegradable products in its breakfast room and Lotus Pro, which uses ozonated water to clean and sanitize the rooms.
