Success Story: Adrift Hotel in Long Beach, WA
With dedicated focus to local products and local food, Adrift Hotel appeals to local customers and new friends from near and far. To protect its beautiful natural home, Adrift pays close environmental attention to every piece of its business and operations. CSC helped them turn that passion for community into capital.
The Adrift Hotel realized the impact they could have on their environmental footprint by installing solar hot water on the roof of their hotel, and when Tiffany and Brady set their minds to something, they do it!
An $18,450 loan from 181 Squareholders funded the installation of solar hot water on the roof of their hotel. What's cooler than that? The project was handled in collaboration with A&R Solar, a Seattle-based solar installation company that accessed $24,800 from their community via Squareholders, too.
Direct email to customers and contacting friends is the best way that Tiffany invited people in her community to participate in the loan. A newsletter that goes out to Adrift Hotel customers functioned as a cool way to update them on their environmental projects while also inviting them to the opportunity to help make it happen by buying a Square.
