Earth Day: Turning Trash Into Treasure
As we recognize Earth Day with celebrations around the globe, let’s pause to realize something quite powerful. Erehwon Retreat participates in the Clean the World hospitality program. We are just one of nearly 900 hotels and bed-and-breakfast partners throughout North America that have helped divert in excess of 550 tons of hotel waste from polluting local landfills.
Think about that for a moment—that 1.1 million pounds of soap and bottled amenities would be trashed. That’s a lot of garbage and, in the truest sense of the term, a great waste of valuable resources.
