In an effort to become an environmentally friendly resort, Beaver Run Resort has created a "green committee". Our goals include reducing our environmental impact, increasing our recycling program, and reducing our carbon footprint. Currently the resort does the following:
At Beaver Run we work hard to recycle all we can, including all newspapers, magazines and office paper. On top of that, all the grease/oil that is produced in our kitchens is repurposed into biofuel.
At Beaver Run we make a conscious effort to only purchase from equitable sources. We always purchase green/organic products when we can.
At Beaver Run we take conservation seriously, which is why we have water bottle filling stations, compact fluorescent lights, and low water-use toilets.
Breckenridge adopted a plan to reduce the use of disposable bags, beginning October 2013, as part of its Sustainable Breck Plan. The use of reusable bags is encouraged.
We are always working to reduce our carbon footprint and these are the steps we are taking to do so.
