Municipal main water consumption is supplemented by rain water collection and storage and greatly reduced by the fitting of dual flush toilet tanks, low flow shower heads and the planting of water-wise indigenous plants and scrubs in our garden.
Electricity consumption and its high carbon footprint is reduced by: the installation of LED lighting all throughout, energy-star approved appliances and electronics as well as ceiling fans for cooling instead of air conditioning.
In house chemical pollution is limited by: using only biodegradable washing, cleaning and guest amenities products, sourcing out our bulk laundry to a reputable and certified operator, using a salt water chlorinator to keep our pool constantly safe and crystal clear.
Waste products are sorted at the source and made ready for recycling at collection.
