1That's very little money for WCVI.
Forget the whole eco/green angle it's all bullshit.
Look what they charge for these jokes http://www.freespiritspheres.com/accommodation_rates.htm

I've had excellent experiences at these places in Tofino and Victoria. Tofino is within your budget in the Fall/Winter/Spring- awesome times to explore without the crowds.
Victoria Westcoast Eco condo, walk to town: https://www.airbnb.ca/rooms/773182
$90/night, very clean and convenient.
Tofino Ecolodge at the Botanical Gardens:http://www.tbgf.org/ecolodge/
$80-100/night in off-season; includes breakfast and pass to the botanical gardens.
Cheers to small footprints! ;o)

4Hi kristinesuddaby if you are looking for some envirionmental things to see and do in Victoria, I recommend:
-Hiking Mount Douglas (360 degree view of Victoria)
-Going to Fisherman's Wharf (there are wild seals that come in looking for fish, you can buy fish to feed them $1 each, pretty cool experience)
-Go to Uvic for seminars, they have some amazing speakers. David Suzuki, Rob Stewart from the movie SharkWater, Dr Robert Gifford a world renowned environmental psychologist. You might even be able to be a participant in his current research.
Anyways, I lived in Victoria for a couple years and loved it and those are just some ideas that come to mind. Safe Travels!

5Free Spirit Spheres are pretty cool and totally eco-friendly (http://www.freespiritspheres.com). I stayed there last summer and loved it! They're like tree houses in shapes of large spheres which are built on site and then suspended from a trees in a way that allows them to continue to grow. Over $100 per night but sleeps 2-3 and totally worth it! They're also the closest accommodation to Horne Lake Caves (http://hornelake.com/) which is a big plus, pretty awesome caves, trails, tours and the lake and scenery is like something taken out of a movie. Definitely worth checking out!
