In housekeeping we make sure that all of our deliveries are in bulk, eg. we order supplies for the entire summer, not month by month to cut down on fuel used in delivery. All of our cleaning supplies are bought concentrated, then diluted with water and put in spray bottles, all old towels are re-used as rags and towels as drop cloths for painting. In the kitchen we insist on purchasing local, we recycle all bottles by color, cardboard, paper and food products. We donate our frylator grease bio diesel. At the front desk we are striving every day to print less thus cutting down on our paper products. Our gardener only used natural fertilizer and our gardens are planted with minimal watering in mind. Maintenance department are replacing all bulbs as they go out with long life bulbs. They also purchase all of thier supplies locally when possible and in bulk when possible to cut down on fuel consumption.
