We use water from underground resources which goes through a 3 way natural purification process. We minimize water consumption in all areas of our property through the combined efforts of guests and associates by implementing a number of initiatives. The installation of sink aerators as well as low-flow showers and toilets lessens the amount of wasted water. We use a minimally efficient amount of water when cleaning. We are also mindful that every drop counts, knowing that small steps, such as turning off taps when brushing teeth, will accumulate into even greater savings.
We combat pollution through reducing, reusing and recycling solid waste which impacts landfills, and by cooperating with local waste management companies. In support of our new waste management direction, we have composting program, and purchase products which are durable, repairable and able to be recycled.
