sustainability

We have endeavoured to consider the environmental effect of every aspect of our business. Hazel House is proud of the Enviro-Silver Award through Qualmark NZ which acknowledges the thinking, processes and practices of valuing and protecting the environment.

Some of the steps taken to lessen the effect on the environment:

  • Using low-energy lighting
  • Installing low flush dual toilet options
  • Using the clothes line when weather permits
  • Ceiling and under-floor insulation
  • Turning off appliances when not in use
  • Vinyl floors steam cleaned, a thorough clean without chemicals
  • Energy rating considered in purchases
  • Recyling paper, card, plastics, glass and tin. Guests support this.
  • Organic and eco friendly products used for cleaning, and guests' amenities.
  • Dispensers used to reduce unnecessary packaging
  • Gardens mulched to retain moisture levels, saving use of water
  • Water filter purchased to reduce need to purchase plastic water bottles
  • Filtered water available for guests
  • Guests choice of re-using towels by replacing on towel rails
  • Using carbon neutral paper
  • Using re-filled ink cartridges
  • Cold water washing where appropriate
  • Curtains have thermal lining
  • Our eggs are free range and organic
  • Sharing sustainability initiatives with local schools
  • Supporting local school with native planting and gardening initiatives
