Eco & Sustainability

Eco / Sustainability

At Highfield Mews we are trying to minimise our impact on the environment.

LPG is used to instantly heat all of our water and to fire our commercial dryer, making use of a natural resource and placing less stress on our power supply. Our commercial washing machine is front loading with an extremely high spin speed reducing the amount of water used as well as drastically decreasing drying time.

We have sourced 100% solution dyed nylon carpet with the asthma and allergy sufferer in mind, environmentally friendly CFC free refrigerators and our toilets have a 4 star WELS (water efficiency and consumption) rating.

We have a computerised control system with timers on our exterior lighting again enabling us to reduce energy consumption while still providing for the safety of our guests. Our garden watering system has timers on strategically placed sprinklers to maximise water efficiency.

Wherever possible we source products produced in our local Otago and Canterbury areas and certainly from within New Zealand if available. By sourcing locally we aim to minimise our carbon footprint while at the same time supporting local businesses. All of our wooden furniture is designed and manufactured in Oamaru by Willetts Furniture Company, using New Zealand Tawhai that is milled from a sustainable forest in Southland. 

To help us in our environmental initiative we invite our guests to participate in our recycling scheme by separating cardboard, plastic & glass bottles, tin cans and paper into their in-room recycling bins lined with biodegradable plastic bags. Guests are asked to indicate which items they require laundered each day to help us conserve water and energy and to reduce the amount of detergents into our waterways. In addition to this we launder all of our own towels and sheets in our on-site commercial laundry which totally eliminates unnecessary handling and transport costs.

We have removed small plastic single use bottles & soap bars and replaced with refillable hand pump shampoo & conditioners and hand wash.

We have an ongoing commitment to reduce the impact of the motel on the environment and plan to introduce further initiatives as time goes on.
