The Bethel Inn Resort and staff are committed to reducing our impact on the environment. Our policy is to seek environmental quality improvements throughout our resort operation. We hope that you will join us in considering the impact we have on our planet and our children’s future.
In the fall of 2014, The Inn is in the middle of switching over to LED bulbs in the resort’s guest rooms, lobby and exterior lights and walkways. This will reduce electricity consumption by as much as 86% while improving the lighting in the guest rooms with brighter bulbs. In many cases, we’re going from an old 60 watt to a 100 watt equivalent.
Recently, we have renovated the Inn’s heat and hot water system by replacing an antiquated single zone boiler system with a multi zone high efficiency system. We have also replaced 75% of the Resort’s incandescent bulbs with high efficiency fluorescent lighting. In addition we have eliminated a number of toxic cleaning chemicals from our Laundry, Housekeeping and Maintenance departments and replaced them with non-toxic, biodegradable alternatives.
Guests repeatedly support our efforts by recycling and reusing printed marketing materials, also by deciding to reuse bed linens and bath towels and by turning off excess lighting and air conditioners when vacating their rooms.
While we will continue to provide all the amenities and services our guests expect, we also accept our responsibility to environmental stewardship and creating a clean future for all.
