Protecting the planet since 1961
Rooted in Airlie’s proud farming heritage, we feel a special connection to the land and we work tirelessly to safeguard it every day. Our conscious, environmentally-friendly practices have placed Airlie solidly at the forefront of sustainable business development and green hospitality. Below are a dozen initiatives we’re fully committed to that help make the world a better, greener place.
Airlie is a National Wildlife Federation “Certified Wildlife Habitat” with buffer zones around lakes and ponds to help our resident species feel at home
Recycling & Composting
We recycle everything from grease to lamps (and so much more), plus we compost kitchen scraps in our organic garden.
We provide guests with the opportunity to use the same towels and bed linens for the duration of their stay to save water
We’ve converted nearly all property-wide lighting to compact florescent or LED technologies to save energy
We maintain a fleet of hybrid and electric vehicles for staff and offer complimentary charging stations for guests in our main parking lot
This dedicated crew conducts regular audits to ensure Airlie’s environmental standards are maintained and employees are up-to-date on best practices
Our LEED-certified Pavilion was also recognized for the rigorous environmentally-friendly construction practices used in its renovation
Our farm office runs on 100% solar power—with geothermal a/c, radiant floor heating and enough battery storage to go four days without sun
