Every now and then we get a call about our environmental programs and blog at the resort. To be honest, we were certified because it seemed like a good idea at the time. No one here could be caught hugging trees or making friends with Chippy the Chipmunk (who seems to be a bit of a ham and find it funny to dart among guests in the parking lot. We apologize – there is a town park to our north and another to our south. He’s living large in chipmunk terms.). Going ‘green’ wasn’t getting a tremendous amount of press in 2006 -but the benefits were clear. Being more efficient saved money and provided a healthier environment for everyone from staff to guests.
And probably for Chippy too.
So it’s always nice to have a bit of interest in us as Ogunquit’s first Environmental Leader.
