Our Committment to the Environment
The Beach House at Bayside team is proud to be accredited with the Eco- Friendly star for our commitment to the environment in our daily work.
Eco-Friendly STAR Accreditation is tailored specifically for the accommodation industry. The Standards used were developed by AAA Tourism in partnership with GREEN GLOBE – the internationally recognised performance improvement program for the tourism industry.
To be awarded Eco-Friendly STAR your property must achieve adequate points against a set of practical environmental criteria. These criteria include:
Energy efficiency - eg: energy efficient light bulbs and fixtures, zoned heating and cooling, signage reminding guests to turn off lights and air-conditioning, correct seals on doors and windows and natural ventilation available.
Waste minimisation - eg: recycling program, towel re-use option, optional newspapers, printer cartridge recycling, linen no change options.
Water management - eg: dual flush toilets, environmentally friendly cleaning products, unbleached paper products, no leaking taps, water efficient dishwasher, use of recycled water on gardens.
