We welcome suggestions & ideas from our guests to help us achieve this objective, & we sincerely thank you for considering the environment. As a retreat & with a focus on 'Mindful Living' we actively undertake the following: - to conserve water & power whenever possible. This includes turning off all appliances in rooms when guests are out for the day. This includes heat pumps, air conditioning, fans, music, lamps, & heated towel rails. These are NOT to be left on during the day when you are away from your room. - to encourage the re-using of towels/linen rather than changing them each day of your stay. If wet these will be dried for you, or you are welcome to hang them on the portable towel rack outside on the deck, or bring the rack inside near the window. - to use appliances that are modern & energy efficient. - to use 'on demand' gas water heating. - to recycle & compost whatever we can. All paper, tin, glass & plastic is recycled. Food scraps are composted or given to the chooks who in turn produce delicious eggs! - to use environmentally friendly cleaning products where possible. - to produce pure, clean, & delicious drinking water via tanks & a bore that run through a top quality, four stage UV filtration system. - to source locally produced goods, & support local businesses/artists. To all guests we ask that you be mindful of waste, water & power! In addition, in a bid to reduce plastic waste, we ask you NOT to bring bottled water - ours is just as good! We truly appreciate your co-operation x 031, 28 Jul 2014 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.huntington.co.nz/blog/environmental-policy.html HOME-MADE MUESLI https://www.huntington.co.nz/blog/muesli.html As an alternative to the packaged cereals that make up part of the Continental Breakfast supplies provided in each room, you are welcome to enjoy our delicious Home-made Muesli - a favourite with our guests!
