We are all guests of Mother Nature.
OWL Greens is a promise we are making to the water we drink and paddle on, to the land we walk, run and bike on, and to the air we breathe. A promise to reduce our imprint and to share that promise with you, our guests. When you choose to participate in one of OWL Rafting’s programs, you are making a Green choice.
We are constantly implementing innovative Green techniques in addition to what we have been doing for years.
We serve all of our meals on reusable plates, cups and cutlery. And wash them with “enviro-friendly” products.
All of our Guest’s food waste and our kitchen non-compostable food waste are fed to our very Happy Pigs and Chickens. Kitchen Compostable waste is treated separately in one of three large composters.
We have an extensive recycling program for our food services area, administrative area, and in our Guest areas. Once per week, all waste is sorted and organized into; recyclable, returnable, and actual waste.
Our Green Washhouse feeds four large bio digester storage tanks where the human waste is slowly converted to reusable fertilizer.
We are making a concerted effort to switch all of our lights at OWL to low wattage LED, and to place them all on timers and photo cells to minimize our power consumption.
The OWL Kitchen is sourcing food from many local organic and Community Supported Agriculture producers.
We are currently investigating the potential of Solar Powered Hot Water for our Guest Showers, Hand Wash and our Food Service Areas.
