In addition to all items checked and noted in the survey, we are in a arid/desert climate and take many steps to conserve water, including limiting sheet and towel changes to once every four days.
We use special detergents that allow for the use of cold water when washing sheets and towels.
And, most importantly we offer vegetarian alternatives for our meals. Consumption of meat is the number one cause of global warming.
