When I first sat down with Jeff Gostlin to discuss the potential for me to be part of Team Keefer Lake, I got extremely excited when he started speaking of his Green Initiative and how he sees Keefer Lake Lodge fitting within this amazing community of Cherryville, B.C. Canada. Jeff had policies and procedures already in place to utilise and protect our natural resources, including the lake and water quality, support local business and employ local staff wherever possible. I could not be happier since these are all things that I support with my whole heart and am excited to help implement and foster.
I have a passion for local creations and all things Earth/environmentally/eco :) friendly. Since moving to Cherryville 9 years ago, I have been blown away by all of the local talent. This community can, and does, make everything! After joining Keefer Lake Catskiing, we started contacting artists, artisans and businesses to set up contracts locally for everything from bedding to cleaning products to the art that decorates our new lodge.
The most recent decision was to use 100% organic alpaca bedding, made locally by Crescent Moon Duvet & Pillow Company.
This company has been in operation since 1997 and they create a truly luxurious product. The alpacas live in a pesticide free environment where no chemicals, bleach or dyes are used in the processing of their wool. With the inclusion of 100% organic cotton fibres, the entire product is bio-degradable at the end of it’s life.
Alpaca fibre is the warmest natural fibre available and is hypo-allergenic. The very best feature of the Alpaca duvets is the soft, warm comfort. These duvets ensure our guests the very best, snuggly, warm, relaxing rest after an intense and rewarding day on the hill.
This is just the first of many products we have chosen to truly pamper our guests, while supporting our amazing community and our beautiful Earth.
See you this season, Nicole.
