Environmentally Friendly Amelia Island Lodging
The Addison on Amelia Island is proud to announce our recent “green certification” with the Audubon International Green Lodging Program. This special recognition verifies that The Addison on Amelia Island is committed to meeting environmental best practice standards, and demonstrates a strong commitment to water conservation, energy efficiency, recycling, and other green practices. The Addison on Amelia Island is the only Bed and Breakfast on Amelia Island who has taken these steps to actively promote green lodging.
While The Addison on Amelia Island strives to deliver exceptional comfort to each guest, it is our goal to incorporate newer products and ecologically-minded “green lodging” practices to ensure the health and safety of our guests at our environmentally friendly bed and breakfast so that the natural beauty of northeast Florida is preserved for future generations to visit and enjoy. As such, The Addison on Amelia Island is committed to recycling efforts and has placed recycle bins in each guest room as well as in the dining room and laundry room for glass, plastic, aluminum, paper, and cardboard items. We encourage guests to re-use their towels in order to help us conserve water and energy throughout their stay, and we provide an extra set of towels in each room to help those efforts. Bedding and towels that are taken out of inventory are donated to the Purple Dove Resale Center either for sale or use in their domestic violence shelter.
Also, we are reducing our use of plastic water bottles in an effort to help maintain our coastal environment and marine life. To that end, we have recently removed all plastic water bottles from our rooms and encourage guests to bring their own water bottles from home. Or you can buy our brand new insulated Addison on Amelia water bottles which are for sale in our gift shop. You will be able to fill the water bottles with ice and water from our new ice machine and water dispenser located in the courtyard. We will ultimately be removing all small plastic bottles from the bathroom to comply with our overall mission of making The Addison on Amelia Island the most eco-friendly accommodation on Amelia Island!
Here at The Addison on Amelia Island we encourage our guests to indulge in the amenities offered at the inn “guilt-free” as a means to renew and restore their own personal energy which is often depleted from the demands of everyday life. We hope that our Amelia Island lodging leaves you feeling fresh and renewed!
