The Pokolodi Lodge began its green initiative over 5 years ago when we began phasing out all of the incandescent bulbs and replacing them with energy efficient compact flourescent bulbs. This overhaul was followed by replacing any styrofoam used in the breakfast area with compostable plates, bowls and cups made from corn. Additionally, signage was added to each guest room urging guests to reuse towels and linens whenever possible to help conserve water and limit the use of detergents and chemicals in the laundering process. In addition to these measures all cleaning products were replaced with earth friendly products whenever possible. These efforts have been supplimented with the implementation of an office managed recycling program that covers all paper, newspaper, plastics, glass and aluminum.
