Forty Putney Road Bed and Breakfast is committed to protecting the environment, the health and safety of our employees, and the community in which we conduct our business. It is our policy to seek improvements throughout our business operations to lessen our impact on the local and global environment by conserving energy, water, and other natural resources; reducing waste generation; recycling and purchasing recycled products; and reducing our use of toxic materials. We believe that as a business we have a responsibility not only to minimize our impact but also to make environmental policy a key and integral part of our business strategy. For us, this translates in to three main areas of action and planning.
1. On an immediate level we are committed to day to day practices which will minimize our environmental impact. Examples would be that we recycle glass, plastic, metals, paper and cardboard and that we use energy saving compact fluorescent bulbs wherever possible.
2. In the medium term we are implementing strategies which we see as over and above the basic day to day policies. Examples of these strategies would be the transition of all cleaning products to those certified by the independent Green Seal program. In the summer of 2007 we began the transition to off white and tan colored linens, to reduce the amount of chemicals necessary to maintain them. As linens are in need of replacement we intend to continue this transition.
3. We are also looking at the long term. For us this involves looking at ways in which we can run the hotel using an increasing amount of renewable energy sources. We have started investigation into the opportunity to purchase energy from more environmentally friendly sources (i.e. cow power) and we are watching the developments in wind energy with interest.
