With over 40,000 acres of lush, natural, and colourful landscapes, it’s no secret that the Mohonk Mountain House Resort cares about the environment a lot. All its amenities, including the spa and terraces are all designed with preserving the environment in mind. Even the functions of the facilities such as use of geothermal heating/cooling systems are eco-friendly.
Activities set within the resort are also meant to promote the preservation of the surroundings. Many of the Kid’s Club activities are meant to promote the environment such as rock climbing, onsite hiking, and more.
Finally, the naturalist staffs of the resort employ practices that conserve energy and resources. The rooms are lit by energy saving bulbs and all laundry and cleaning is done with biodegradable and non-toxic substances. The resort also employs an elaborate composting and recycling system to make sure that waste is disposed of properly.
Mohonk also partners with Clean the World for its large supply of soap and shampoo. Clean the World has been recycling and hygiene supplies for many years, and Mohonk’s partnership has contributed to the recycling of over 325,000 pounds of shampoo and 11 million soap bars, effectively reducing waste by 750 tons.
The owners of the resort constantly participate in tree planting projects as well as activities that raise local awareness for the preservation of the environment.
