We hope you will consider implementing any of these green ideas, and share with us your ideas/suggestions to help us become even more of a “green bed and breakfast”, and to help us all become better stewards of this beautiful and fragile planet.

    As of January, 2013, We will no longer use the little plastic amenity bottles! Each shower will be equipped with shampoo and conditioner pump bottles, resulting in saving the landfill from approximately 4,000 little bottles each year. Shampoo and conditioner contain all natural ingredients, and of course no parabens; All inn laundry is done in-house, with low water/high centrifuge washers. Drying time is greatly diminished. Laundry is washed and rinsed on cold, with all stains pre-treated with environmentally friendly product; Laundry detergent and cleansers are biodegradable and environmentally friendly; Compact fluorescent or LED bulbs are being transitionally used throughout the B&B. Burned out CFBs are sent to special recycling center that reclaims the mercury so no discarded bulbs placed in landfills; Curbside recycling is standard in Rehoboth, Bewitched & BEDazzled recycles every product possible in our area: Grass and yard waist, corrugated cardboard, aluminum, tin cans, and plastic. Recycling basket is on the deck, separate recycling baskets are provided in every guest room; Purchases are made in bulk to reduce packaging waste; We are transitioning all new toilets to low flow 1.6 gallons; We love organic and local ingredients. Whenever possible, fresh fruit and vegetables are purchased from local organic farmers; Showers and faucets are all low flow; In 2011, we partnered with Clean the World to recycle unused guest soaps, and the bottles we are currently using in order to prevent childhood diseases worldwide; The flowering shrubs and plants were selected to feed hummingbirds, butterflies, bees, and bumblebees. It works!; An herb garden & blueberries are planted outside on the deck provides fresh flavors for the breakfast foods; A culture of re-purposing has developed at the B&B. Whenever an item no longer functions for its designed purpose, We creatively look for a different purpose. For examples, towels no longer in service for guests become cleaning rags, teapots might become planters, a bedspread becomes a tablecloth; Linens that are taken out of service are recycled to staff and charity organizations.  www.rehobothbandb.com • 302-226-9482

  • Coastal Kayak, SUP, and Sail
    Kayaking, paddleboarding, and sailing - no fossil fuels needed, only willpower or wind. How much greener can you get? At Coastal Kayak, all of the activities we promote are non-motorized. We offer kayak, paddleboard, and small sailboat rentals, guided eco tours, and instruction. As an added benefit, these activities make the participants healthier by giving them a work-out (although quietly slipping along the shoreline at sunset is so relaxing that it isn't so much of a physical workout, but it does greatly improve your mental outlook!)  We also are working to "green" the business side of our business. We no longer sell sodas in plastic one-time-use bottles - only easily recyclable aluminum cans. Starting this year we are making an effort to cut back on our plastic water bottle sales by implementing a refillable filtered water station and selling reusable bottles. And last year we reduced our paper usage by changing our release form method. We purchased a high-speed scanner, laminated our forms, and can now reuse the same form over and over.  www.coastalkayak.com • 302-539-7999

  • Fork + Flask at Nage Restaurant
    Nage has discoverd that we can significantly cut our cabon footprint by purchasing locally grown food.  Instead of buying food that has been shipped across the country, or in some cases across the globe, we buy locally whenever we can.  We developed a Farm-to-Table program that runs six months of the year.  This program is an effort educate our guests on the importance of buying local, organic and sustainable foods.  During the months that we are able purchase local produce, meats and seafood, we make an effort to buy only local goods.  We have paired with over twenty local farmers to supply our needs.  Every Thursday night we have a dinner to spotlight one of our local farmers.  The farmer is in the restaurant to meet guests and explain how their method of farming can help improve the environment.  In addition to the Tursday night dinners, we are very active with both the Rehoboth and Lewes Farmers Markets.  Our goal is to reduce our footprint by using pesticide free foods, using foods that have not been shipped long distances and using foods with reduced packaging or no packaging.  We are also participating in a full stream recycling program which recycles everything except food scraps.  We have installed a special hot water heater that heats the water "on demand" which has significantly lowered our gas consumption.  We have installed a special film on the windows that significantly lowers the amount of heat that comes through in the summer and we installed skylights that allow light but not heat to enter during the day.   www.nage.bz • 302-226-2037

  • Secure Self Storage
    At Secure Self Storage Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, we are proud users of solar power at our facility. Over many years, we have strived to implement various energy reduction techniques, alternative energy sources, and recycling programs to reduce our carbon footprint and provide quality service; to be an environmentally friendly facility to the citizens of Delaware. Starting in 2005, after consulting with various environmental groups and solar panel companies and manufacturers, we decided to install a bank of solar panels to supply electricity to our self storage facility. Depending on the season, the solar panels are able to generate 30 – 50% of the electricity needs of the facility. Adding further improvements and refinements, a whopping 90% of the total electric needs are provided by the array of solar panels. Secure Self Storage, Rehoboth actually produces more solar energy per year than it uses, allowing us to sell the extra electric ity back to the grid. We still buy some energy from the grid because unfortunately, and as we all know; the sun doesn’t shine every day. Our solar panels power our office, our lighted non-climate storage units, our climate controlled storage units, and our lighted marquee.  www.secureselfstorage.net • 302-227-5900

Chamber Green Force Goals & Accomplishments

April 22, 2010.  Earth Day Shredding Event a Huge Success!  The Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Michael Loftus of CPC Financial Planning and the Chamber’s Green Force hosted a “Shredding Event” on Earth Day. The inaugural event was held at Bethany Blues Restaurant in Lewes.  The turnout was great!  Approximately 350 people brought over 13,000 pounds of paper to shred.  Data Guard, the company who shredded the paper, filled the truck in 2 hours...a company first!  Chamber Green Force Members were set up to greet participants and to pass out literature.

July 2008. Green Force Meeting.  During a Chamber Green Force meeting, Senator Carper turned the tables on the Force that day . . . asking the members what they were doing to support alternative energy and what ways they had found to help out good old mother earth. Since that time, the Force has grown to over 100 members who have met to identify their priorities, set goals and next steps.

July 2009.  Recycling Day in Dewey Beach.  A one day recycle campaign was held on July 1st from 1:00-3:00 PM in Dewey Beach at Crabber’s Cove Parking Lot.

April 2009 & August 2010.  Renewable Energy Fair.  Chamber Green Force is represented at the Renewable Energy Trade Shows. A booth is manned and information is provided.

Partnership meetings are being scheduled to “learn more.”
