The Shady Spruce Hostel mission concentrates on the perpetual reduction of our carbon footprint AND overall elimination of negative environmental/human impact. Management readily evaluates, measures, and communicates progress of impact-reduction programming with interested community members through its webpage and social media outlets. We go so far as to offer free-trade coffee/tea, a guest recycling center, state of the art HVAC systems, water conservation fixtures and appliances, LED lighting, enviro-safe laundry processing, on-site composting, organic free-trade soaps, 100% recycled paper products, and phosphate/sulphate-free plant-based cleaning supplies.
