Going Green

To protect our environment, the Edelweiss Haus has been created to be as efficient as possible.  This includes:

  • Solar water heater - evacuated tubes

  • High efficiency washer and bedding line dried

  • Most lights replaced with compact fluorescent bulbs,(CFL's), and some LED's

  • Solar lights on the balcony and walkways

  • Many home-grown fruits used in jams, juices, toppings

  • Our own veggies and herbs seasonally

  • Local "happy" eggs from chickens that roam

  • We recycle and compost

  • Natural and non-toxic cleaning supplies used

  • No chemicals used on lawn or garden

  • Individual heating/airconditioning controls

  • Fans overhead and windows that open for cooling

  • Smoke-free
