MacArthur Place also irrigates all landscaping with non-potable well water. The majority of our landscape is established plants, shrubs and trees and over half of them are drought tolerant. We composts fruits and veggies, hold an annual employee sustainability seminar focused on what employees can do at home, and started a model room to test new green technologies to put in the hotel. We have installed overhead LED lights in that room. We are exploring and still in the process of testing sensored thermostats. We are also proud to be the recipient of local recognitions for our program. For a complete list of our efforts and to read our Sustainability Mission, please visit www.sonomagreenhotel.com.
