Canyonlands Lodging is going even more green in 2016. We Strive to be environmentally friendly. This year we share this dream with our guests. We take on this responsibility and invite our guests to join us in this challenge. Here are some ways we are protecting the environment.
Limited Water Consumption- At our cabins we encourage our guests to be aware of their water usage. We post signs in each bathroom about using towels more than once, and to be conscious of water over usage. We also measure our water consumption rate, so that we can better improve our efforts in water conservation.
Locally Reclaimed Lumber-We have made a huge effort to help with overgrowth locally, and replenish natural vegetation by using locally harvested mature lumber; to build our cabins. Every effort is made to conserve our natural resources here in San Juan County.
Recycling Food and Products-Part of our mission to be more environmentally friendly is by composting our food to use in our garden. We are also installing recycling bins in every cabin, to help reduce our Natural Footprint.
No Paper waste-We have gone digital on all our contracts, waivers, and rental agreements; so that we can help reduce paper waste through the world. This action alone helps us save hundreds of trees.
Solar facility-We use solar energy to make every effort in using a renewable energy source.
Natural Heating-Each cabin is equipped with a Wood Burning Stove, and/or a natural gas heater. This helps us conserve electricity, and minimize pollution.
Organic Food-We plant a garden every year so we can reap the health benefits of natural produce. We grow as much of our food needs as we can.
Homemade Products-Most of our quilts, blankets, tablecloths, ect… Are handmade by us, and are made from recycled fabric.
Energy Star-Most electrical fixtures in our cabins are “Energy Star” approved. We do this to reduce our reliance on electricity.
Promoting “Going Green”- is part of our effort to promote others to help preserve this planet. We offer free information, and visual tours of The Latigo Wind Farm, or The Outdoor Discovery Center.
