Going Green - Update
We signed up for a combination of Wind and low-impact Hydro Energy through our local utility company. This program is available to residence and business users but strangely, we had to go looking for it.
In addition, through yet another partnership with our local utility company, we had all our light bulbs changed in the tea room to energy-efficient ones.
Finally, we have started to consciously change out our paper goods to those that are more eco-friendly. You may have noticed our 'ecotainer' sample cups. They are compostable and perfect for greening our Tea Room. These hot cups have an inner lining made from 100% corn whereas conventional paper hot cups have inner linings made from petroleum. Also the paper comes from trees that were harvested sustainably and the cups are elemental chlorine-free.
