With the climate heating up and wild weather our new normal, we’re all looking for greener ways to travel—whether it’s as elaborate as buying carbon offsets or simple as a reusable coffee cup. But it’s easier to be eco-friendly on the road when you’ve got a helping hand.
Here’s how staying with DelSuites helps you travel green—and enjoy comfortable Toronto luxury without taking it out on our planet.
DelSuites units are built green
DelSuites sources our furnished short-term rentals exclusively in Tridel buildings—and Tridel is Canada’s recognized leader in sustainable design. With the most LEED-certified buildings in the country and 11 BILD Green Builder of the Year Awards, Tridel has led the way in innovating new ways to combine comfortable luxury housing with good ecological practices.
That means staying in a DelSuites furnished apartment is a chance to sample buildings constructed and designed from the ground up for clean air, energy efficiency, and water-saving. Tridel buildings, on average, use 34% less electricity, 57% less natural gas and 43% less potable water than your standard modern high-rise—and automatically cut down on the climate impact of your travel.
A DelSuites stay also gives you the chance to enjoy innovative new sustainable technologies. Tridel’s one of the co-founders of research laboratory Tower Labs—a space devoted to making high-rise living cleaner, greener, and more sustainable, including Canada’s first Net Zero condominium home. And DelSuites furnished apartments are located in the buildings where those innovations are rolled out first.
Booking your stay at Element means not just accessible downtown luxury, but enjoying the first condominium in Canada built with Enwave’s revolutionary Deep Lake Water Cooling System. It’s an innovation that reuses waste heat from a nearby heating plant to keep your suite warm in winter—and almost eliminate the environmental impact of heating and cooling the building.
With a DelSuites booking, you’re already ahead in making your trip an eco-friendly one.
Furnished short-term rentals let you travel green
The hospitality industry has come a long way in reducing, reusing, and recycling everywhere, from flexible housekeeping policies to changing the waste footprint of toiletries. But for the eco-focused traveler, a furnished rental is the greenest solution—because it’s designed for daily life.
All of our units have fully equipped kitchens, complete with dishes, glassware, kitchen tools, and all the major appliances you need to whip up your favourite meal. Whether you’re a home gourmet or want to sample Toronto’s world-class international restaurants, you can ditch the takeout plastic cutlery, disposable coffee cups, and coffee pods to eat a little greener.
Our kitchens’ stock of reusable storage containers also let you use Toronto’s multiple waste-free and co-op grocery stores, and cut out the waste plastic altogether. Or you can take advantage of a residential address—and the services of our friendly concierges—to have fresh, local fruits and vegetables brought to your door with Toronto’s leading-edge social enterprise produce box program, Foodshare.
When something does have to go into the trash, you’ll have the chance to choose a greener option. All our buildings participate in the City of Toronto’s Blue Bin and Green Bin programs, which divert recyclables and organic waste out of landfills.
Our suites’ full, no-fee laundry facilities are equipped with modern washing machines and dryers: built to balance energy and water use. With the chance to run laundry whenever you need, you can take advantage of off-peak electricity hours and cut out dry cleaners’ or launderers’ plastic packaging. And more importantly, you’ll have the chance to pack lighter, save luggage weight—and luggage fees—and reduce your carbon footprint while you travel.
Our locations open Toronto’s eco-friendly options to you
Toronto has a strong commitment to living green, and when you’re part of the neighbourhood—whether it’s for two weeks or half a year—it’s that much easier to take part.
Our suites are located in high Walk Score neighbourhoods, putting you just steps away from major business destinations, hospitals, theatres, parks, sports, restaurants, and green, clean public transit—and making it easier for you to get your daily steps in!
If you want to go a little faster and amp up the cardio, Bike Share Toronto stations are never more than a few blocks away, and their easy-to-use network lets you check in and check out bicycles across the city.
You’re also never far from supplies for eco-friendly living, from high-end to grassroots, or the city’s diverse farmer’s markets. Both seasonal and year-round markets make it easy for you to eat not just diverse and healthy, but local—and cut down on the kilometres your food has had to travel.
The future is green travel
We’re all changing the way we live, work, and travel as the world changes around us—and DelSuites makes it easy to embrace green living without sacrificing any of the perks that make great vacation memories.
