Hanmer Springs Environmental Statement

Hanmer Springs environmental issues are important to Hanmer Apartments through its sustainable recycling. We care for our environment and realise that recycling and sustainable living will help protect our special paradise within Hanmer Springs. Every morning we wake up and realise how lucky we are to live in a beautiful Alpine Village and do what we can, albeit in a small way, to help the environment and scenery we live in within Hanmer Springs.

In your apartment you will see we have gas water-heating, heat pumps for hot and cold air, double glazed windows and the most effective wall, ceiling & under-floor thermal insulation.  A private patio keeps the sun at bay in the hot summer months and its warming influence can be felt in winter.

We use "Natural Earth" bathroom products made from 100% vegetable based manuka honey & harakeke oil.  All guests are given small soap tablets for one or two nights nights stay.  The toilets are dual flush.  Spare towels are available if requested as new ones are not necessarily provided each day.  When possible, to save energy and water, all linen is line dried.

When possible, we try to minimise the use of cleaning products and we appreciate our guests leaving behind any perishables, plastic, glass or paper for us to recycle.

We spot spray or manually lift weeds from the garden and use the clippings from the lawn into our compost. We also use a compost bin for appropriate garden waste which is spread straight back onto the beds.

To explore the village and wonderful forest tracks, we encourage all our guests to use our free bikes, another effort in reducing our carbon neutral footprint.

Our endeavors might be slight comparative to the world we live in, but any effort wherever possible is what matters in helping New Zealands Clean Green Image and reducing the worlds Carbon Neutral Footprint.        

Thank-you for staying with us and helping in whatever way you can to keep our environment clean & green
