Keeping the “green” in Spruce Point
We celebrate the upcoming 43rd anniversary of Earth Day on April 22 with a reaffirmation of our commitment at Spruce Point Inn to environmental stewardship.
Spruce Point covers 57 acres of woods and waterfront, making our impact on the Maine coastal environment, and active conservation and protection of those beautiful places, a critical part of our responsibility as innkeepers. We love to introduce our guests to the natural environment of Maine and each time someone comments on our incredible location we are rededicated to ensuring Spruce Point remains a legacy for future generations – for all of us who live on the planet. We know that what we do at Spruce Point affects our corner of the coast, the land that surrounds us and the ocean beyond.
The environment is not just an attraction here at Spruce Point. The commitment is sincere. Spruce Point Inn is now in our 7th year as a Maine Department of Environmental Protection“ Environmental Leader.” We were the first property of our size when we earned accreditationin 2006 and is now listed on the Maine Department of Tourism’s website as a “green lodging partner.”
We are very proud of the fact that we are a preferred lodging partner for the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden. Now The Boothbay Region Land Trust (www.bbrlt.org) has also recognized that environmental commitment and named us their hospitality conservation partner for 2013. The Land Trust looks for businesses that see conservation as their responsibility, and take active steps to advance conservation.
