Eco-Friendly Housekeeping at Golden Arrow
Green Cleaning Agents. We changed our cleaning products in February 2019 to the Santec fusion series. The fusion series is a line of housekeeping products designed to be easy to use, efficient and safe, and feature state-of-the-art dispensing solutions and clear, simple color-named packaging. They are “green cove, environmentally preferred” cleaners that all attach to the mixer in our laundry room so we will use less bottles as we will mix them ourselves.
Sheet/Towel Reuse Program: This is not very original, and thankfully many hotels have something similar in place. It is something that guests are very familiar with and are comfortable participating in. It is also an easy way for them to help conserve while they are visiting with us.
Laundry: Our laundry detergent is also from Santec. They reuse their 15-gallon drums instead of throwing away all that plastic! We fill our washing machines and dryers with full loads and when possible we use cold water to wash instead of hot. All of our Washers & Dryers are the most efficient on the market!
Energy Efficient Vacuums: Recently we needed to replace some of our old vacuum’s. Our green team decided the new ones we purchased would be “The Sanitaire” by Electorlux. This Vacuum has earned certificates for its environmental friendliness, including approval for “green cleaning” from the Carpet and Rug Institute and Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) Program.
