Going Green

Listed below are a few of the ways that the Hemlock Inn is Going Green:

  • The weed killer we use in the garden is environmental friendly which consists of salt, vinegar, and liquid detergent. No animals birds or guest are harmed.
  • We have 3 recycling containers located outside our ice room which guest are encouraged to recycle glass, plastic and aluminum cans.
  • All toilets have been replaced with flow toilets which help conserve water usage.
  • We replace all bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs to conserve energy.
  • We have a 80 gallon rain barrel that we have used since 1998 to catch rain water to water the hanging baskets and planters on the property.
  • We use an electric lawn mower for our lawn which means no gas resulting in fewer carbon emissions.
  • We use eco coffee cups that are made of recycled paper which replace the styrofoam cups for low environmental impact.
  • We have replaced our shower heads with high efficiency shower heads which use 30% less water.
  • Our driveway gravel to prevent less water drainage going down the street and waste, most of the water is absorbed.
  • The toilet paper and paper towels are made from a company called North River. This company uses solar power for production.
