Responsible tourism: Finger Lakes vegan bed & breakfast, New York State, USA

Environment

I strive to make my bed and breakfast as environmentally friendly as possible. I use non-toxic cleaning supplies, grow many of my own organic vegetables and fruits and purchase from local organic growers, have an on-demand hot water system and maintain my 15 acre property as a wildlife 'sanctuary'. You can often see deer, fox, coyote and many species of birds during the day/evening. Bees are always buzzing around the flowers.

The food I serve is 100% vegan. I follow the Reduce, Reuse and Recycle philosophy and compost all food and garden scraps.

I try to recycle building materials as I can and purchase many things second-hand. I have built my garden raised beds using recycled materials and have also built some of the furniture myself, again using as much recycled/reclaimed wood as possible.

I do not wash towels or sheets daily and ask that my B&B guests comply with this as a daily washing is not necessary and only wastes water. I only water my perennial gardens during extremely dry conditions, opting to grow drought resistant plants.

Community

I belong to a local CSA, shop at the weekly Farmer's Market and support local businesses. I am on the Board of the local Humane Society and volunteer at our low cost spay/neuter clinics and events.

As a B&B owner, I am in a position to recommend local businesses to my guests and am proud to do so. As a small business owner, I feel it is necessary to support other local businesses. I have been a member of the Schuyler County Lodging and Tourism Association for 6 years, serving as Secretary for the past 4 years. I am also a member of the local Chamber of Commerce.

I am a former employee and current volunteer for Farm Sanctuary, the US' oldest sanctuary for factory farmed animals and I encourage all visitors to my B&B to learn more about this organization and see how a plant-based diet can improve their health, the environment and the lives of animals.
