Green Since 1990

Long Beach Island, NJ First Green Hotel Or Motel

Lorry’s LBI Motel Was The First Long Beach Island, NJ Hotel Or Motel to use “Green” programs since 1990 when Lorry’s Motel was first purchased, and Before “Going Green” was even fashionable.

Lorry’s Motel Was The First LBI Hotel Or LBI Motel in 1990 to not offer daily maid service to conserve energy and resources by not washing the sheets every day. Lorry’s Sheets Are Washed After Each Checkout and are clean when you check-in. During your stay at Lorry’s Motel your sheets can be exchanged at the Guest’s request if needed.

Not washing the sheets everyday Now Is A Common Practice in some LBI Hotels and LBI Motels and also many hotels and motels worldwide to save water and energy.

At Lorry’s Motel we don’t wash all the towels every day. Lorry’s Guests are asked to use their towels more than once and then bring them to Lorry’s Office to exchange them for fresh towels.

These practices greatly reduce Lorry’s Long Beach Island Motel water use, energy consumption, detergent use and reduces the amount of detergent wastewater that must be recycled within our LBI community, all helping Barnegat Bay and the LBI environment.

Also, not having daily maid service allows Lorry’s Motel to invest the money we save in having many Free Amenities, which helps Lorry’s Guests have an Affordable LBI Vacation. Lorry’s Free Amenities save our Guests $50 – $125 per day per room.

We invite all of our Long Beach Island Motel Guests to join with us to conserve additional water and energy by hanging your towels on our outside clothes line and using your towels more than once before exchanging them. Also Lorry’s Guests are encouraged to turn off your TV and lights when you are not using them to save electricity.

Long Beach Island, NJ is a beautiful 18 mile barrier island and we all must do a better job of conserving our LBI resources. Currently Barnegat Bay is in serious trouble and we are trying to Save Barnegat Bay. The LBIfest held on June 12, 2010 with 6,500 people donated $2,060.64 to Reclam The Bay to help Save Barnegat Bay.

When Long Beach Island Hotel & Motel Guests participate in these programs “You Help Save Barnegat Bay And The Earth Where We Live.”

Thank You for helping to save Barnegat Bay and Planet Earth.

We Appreciate All Your Help To Conserve!

Also, Lorry’s Motel has instituted many other “Green Programs” like:

* 23 Bicycle Racks Lorry’s Motel encourages our Guests to bicycle and save gas when on their LBI vacation. This is a great way to have some fun and get some exercise while bicycling Beautiful Long Beach Island.
* Recycling In All The Rooms: Every room has a full size recycling bin and garbage container.
* Recycling In The Courtyard & BBQ Area: Lorry’s Courtyard has 2 Recyling Cans AND 2 Garbage Cans – so once your BBQ is over you can easily recycle and separate your trash in the proper can.
* Energy Efficient Replacement Windows (100% completed) Lorry’s Motel has already upgraded all 40 of our windows with Energy Efficient Replacement Windows. This project took us about 4 years to complete all 40 windows.
* Energy Efficient Lightbulbs: Lorry’s Motel is replacing the older lightbulbs as they burn out with Energy Efficient Lightbulbs.
* Reduced Water Flow Toilets
* Reduced Water Flow Shower Heads
* E-Bills & Eco-Bills E-Mailed To Lorry’s Long Beach Island Motel: Bills that are e-mailed saves a lot of paper rather than wasting paper in mailing and paying the bills.
