Let's Talk About Sustainability

Our impact on the natural resources of Whistler is something that's at the forefront of every decision that we make at Nita, and we're constantly striving to be more and more eco-conscious. Our green practices help protect the environment by encouraging sustainability in a variety of ways such as recycling, composting, and chemical-free cleaning supplies. On this page, we'd love to share with you what we're doing to promote sustainability, and how you can help us to keep British Columbia (and the world) beautiful.
