Highgrove House Country Hotel Mpumalanga Accommodation Green Policy

Energy Management: Energy saving light bulbs, timers on outside lights and pool pump.

Water Management: No unnecessary laundry cleaning (water saving) Macadamia nut shells are used for the gardens to keep in moisture to avoid over watering.

Management of Solid Waste: Re-cycling of glass, cans, paper and cardboard boxes. We provide reusable items such as cloth napkins, glass cups, ceramic dishes, etc. with all food and beverage services. Provide glass cups and cloth napkins for in-room beverages. All fresh produce waste is collected and our earth worms recycle to produce fertilizer for our organic vegetable garden to supply our restaurant.

Dining: Locally produced ingredients are used ensuring a socially and environmentally conscious menu. Organic vegetable garden is planted to provide fresh produce for our guests and as the Hotel is on a farm, Macadamia nuts and avocados are used extensively in menus during the season. Our coffee beans produced and grown in the Sabie Valley. Free range eggs are produced on the farm. Bees work very hard to produce honey for our guests and pollinate the orchards, fruit trees and flower gardens.

Newspapers: Not purchasing newspapers for every guest and reading the news on-line.

Guest Amenities: Re-filled by bulk supply bottles rather than replacing individual packaging.

Social Awareness: All our staff is recruited from the Mpumalanga area and we conduct training, social awareness and environmental consciousness for both farm and hotel staff.
