At Spirit Bear Coffee we love farmers! Especially coffee farmers. And that’s why we purchase ONLY 100% organic and fair trade coffee. Organic isn’t just better for you, it’s better for them!

The Inn at the Ninth Hole and the environment, as most people and businesses we try to the best we can to safe nature and the environment and still offer a high quality accommodation. In the last 2 years we invested a substantial  amount of money in improvements, for our guests and the future of nature.

We replaced all 3 hot water tanks for new energy saving tanks and changed the system, so we can shut off the water tanks we don't need. We replaced the dishwashers for more energy friendly ones.

We replaced almost all multiple light fixtures for single or double bulb fixtures and started to replace all bulbs for LED bulbs (saves up to 50% energy) on our CFL bulbs. Use of  timers so lights are off when not needed.

Replacing older AC units and washer and dryers for more energy friendly models.

This winter we replaced all carpets with Mohawk carpets green and sustainable produced with use of recycled  and new materials. All rooms and spaces have new paint, environment friendly and what is left over will be responsibly recycled.

We replaced many furniture and light fixtures in the rooms, almost everything  is having a second life.

We started a new program to recycle our used soaps and bottles shampoo and body wash. We  collect them and ship to Clean the world, a program that recycles the products and hand them out to ones in need all over the world.   And no more landfill filling.

We buy all our food local from farms and local producer where possible organic. What is left over we compost and use as fertiliser on our veggie garden.

We offer recycle bins in every room and recycle paper, glass, plastic, metal, batteries and empty bottles.

We promote to turn off lights and electronics in the room when guests are not there. 

When we shop we use our own bags and crates no need for extra bags and we look for environmental friendly  packaging.
