Most everyone is doing all that they can to be nice and green. We’re no different. Living and operating our glamping experiences in such a precious place as Orcas Island means that we think about our impact every step of the way. Our passion for the great outdoors means that we’re also passionate about being as kind to the great outdoors as possible.
Here a just a few ways that our glamping experiences are green:
Our tents are made out of army-duck canvas. Army Duck has the remarkable quality of being highly water repellent while at the same time being very breathable. Our glamping tents are tightly woven, 100% cotton which means that they last decades, not days like less durable synthetic tent options.
The lumber for our Cedar deck platforms was milled right around the corner at a San Juan Island sawmill. This means that the materials to create those beautiful Cedar glamping tent platforms didn’t have to travel too far to get to our glamping sites in Moran State Park.
The organic waffle weave towels we provide guests are made from 100% Natural Cotton. They’re also free of defoliants, dyes and synthetic chemicals. Plus they’re really lightweight so the amount of energy required for daily washing and drying is reduced dramatically over traditional terry towels.
We refill recyclable bath amenity dispensers with soaps made with care from 100% natural ingredients.
Our coffee is a custom blend roasted right in the San Juan Islands and our granola is made here, too. We package our beans and granola with recyclable materials and have drastically reduced our carbon footprint by sourcing from our Island neighbors.
We offer receptacles and recycling guides next to each can at camp. We also try not to print documents, but when we do, we use 100% post-consumer paper.
We strive to use only plant derived cleaning products which are GMO free, cruelty free, made in the USA, fragrance free, sulfate free and petroleum free.
All of our lighting is LED and battery operated. We even use rechargeable batteries in many of our fixtures and always recycle traditional batteries that are all used up.
Save Every Drop
The State Parks’ showers are coin operated to help limit water consumption while you’re washing up. All spigots throughout the park also shut-off automatically to help eliminate the chances for a leak and wasted water.
We sure hope that you’re as passionate about our eco-efforts as we are.
