Sustainable Business Office @ Mayflower Inn

Sustainable Business Office

Our business office
is as permaculture-inspired
and eco-friendly as our hotel.

Here are some of the eco-friendly
practices at our business office:
Because we are a no-frills hotel,
we remain faithful
to our sustainable purchasing policy
by cutting down on unnecessary purchases
and avoiding over-specifying
of product requirements,
patronizing small,
local family businesses,
minimizing the purchase
of imported products
(to lessen the burning of fossil fuels)
and steering away from aerosol
and toxic products.

What we do to reduce waste of energy:
maximize use of natural daylighting,
use of task lighting,
use of green (plants) cladding
to reduce penetration of direct heat,
share a common printer,
use of micro-cars (Smart car)
as management service vehicles.

Here are our re-use practices
at the office:
re-using papers
and printing on both sides of the page,
using dot matrix printers
with refillable ribbon ink cartridge,
using newsprint or recycled paper
for non-archival documents,
prolonging the life of office fixtures
and those that need to be released
like old furniture, computers and equipment
are donated to charitable institutions.

Discarded documents
that cannot be reused for printing
are utilized to make compost or landfill.
Purchasing products and services
from small local family businesses
in order to support the local community economy.

Thank you for your continued patronage
and partnering with us
in our endeavor to lead a business
that yields abundantly
while also responsibly
caring for the earth, the people and the future.
