Pinehurst Inn - Sustainable & Responsible Business of the Week


Pinehurst Inn Bed & Breakfast (Bayfield WI) is an historic inn, built in 1885. In 2003, owners Steve and Nancy Sandstrom added the Garden House, a green building that is energy-efficient and used sustainable materials in construction. The Pinehurst Inn uses solar hot water heaters, green cleaning products, and organic linens and towels. Pinehurst Inn composts food and garden waste, recycles, avoids chemical treatments on lawn and gardens, serves locally grown organic food and organic coffees and teas, and has converted their vehicle (the Grease Car) to run on recycled grease. The Inn also purchases carbon offsets for their business as well as offsets for 50% of customers' travel to the Inn.

Good ideas. Some are easy to find by going back in time about 60 years... not all though.
