NHSLRP, the New Hampshire Sustainable Lodging and Restaurant Program, and will be officially designated as "environmental champions". We were audited for our "environmental initiatives" like recycling, use of energy saving appliances and bulbs, conservation practices, composting, cleaning chemicals used, water saving measures, gardens and plantings, use of local foods, etc and were awarded their highest certification level.
Their mission statement states: "The New Hampshire Sustainable Lodging & Restaurant Program (NHSLRP) strives to encourage lodging and restaurant facilities throughout the state to continually evaluate operations for more environmentally sustainable means of pampering our guests while protecting the place that both we and our guests love. The program promotes facilities reducing their impact on the land and natural resources through their own selected initiatives..."
We are very excited about this designation and are always looking for other ways to reduce our "carbon footprint" while providing our guests with the best B&B experience possible.
