Recycle containers placed throughout the property and at each cottage.
Purchased 4 stroke boat motor
We use Battery operated "weed wacker" whenever possible
No pesticides or herbicides or any chemicals are used on the grounds
All paint is water based. No oil paint is used.
Light bulbs are being replaced with compact florescent bulbs
The hot tubs have no heaters! (They use a heat recovery system from the pump motor)
All the refrigerators are energy star rated
Most outdoor lights are solar powered or on timers
Laundry detergent is from Eco Ethic - no phosphates
We have a compost pile for all our leaves that we collect each Fall
There is a buffer between the property and the water to limit the effect of runoff water into the lake.
Septic systems are pumped out regularly to ensure the anaerobic digestion process continues to work.
Please do your part to help:
Use the recycle bins provided at each cottage and around to property for cans, bottles, fibres, newspapers.
To conserve energy, Keep the cottage windows closed when running your air conditioner or heaters.
Turn off the television when you go outside.
Put the lid on the hot tub when not in use to keep the heat in.
Use a funnel when putting gas in your boat to eliminate spillage. Don't fill to the top of the tank.
