THE ENVIRONMENT

From Somewhere Unique:

Energy Use

A 3kW solar electricity powers the retreats, providing a large proportion of the energy needs of guests

Cross-flow air ventilation and ceiling fans reduce the need for air-conditioning

Energy efficient light globes are used where appropriate

6-star rated air-conditioning units utilising inverter technology

Instant gas hot water

Water

Smart Flush technology toilets

Rain water is collected for all water needs, with storage of over 170,000L on the property

Front loading washing machines

Garden Master Bio-Logic waste water treatment plant, which recycles waste water to provide irrigation for gardens

Use of drought tolerant native plants in landscaping

Waste Minimisation

Newspapers, cardboard glass bottles, PET plastic, steel cans, aluminium cans, and printer cartridges are recycled and guests are asked to separate these items from their general waste

Food scraps are composted

Lawn clippings, tree trimmings and other green waste are disposed of on the property

Design and Construction

The retreats have been designed using passive solar architecture principles, to make the best use of the sun’s energy

Large north facing windows that let in the low winter sun, and roof overhangs that keep out the high summer sun

Well insulated to keep the warmth inside during cold weather and prevent heat from entering when it is hot

A large proportion of the building materials are steel, which is one of the world’s most recycled products

Low-E glass used to reflect the long wave heat radiation back into the rooms during Winter, and reflect the heat back outside during Summer

Bamboo timber flooring – sustainably sourced, fast growing, rapidly renewable, low manufacturing waste

Timber furniture built using ecoSelect hardwood

Many soft furnishings are made using natural fabrics from Cloth Fabric, with cushion inserts made using corn fibre

Supplies

Stationery is printed on recycled paper and card, using environmentally sound printing methods

Toilet paper, tissues and paper towel used in the retreats are all made from recycled paper

Rubbish bin liners and compost bags used are biodegradable
