This year, April 22nd was recognized as Earth Day.  It’s a time when we are asked to demonstrate our support for environmental protection. We, here at Ponte, take environmental protection seriously and live it on a daily basis. We constantly aim to improve on our sustainability efforts.  Here are a few examples of what we do as a team to decrease our carbon footprint:

  • Ponte Vineyard Inn associates receive reusable water bottles to bring to work with them to reduce the amount of paper cups used throughout their shift.
  • We have begun an in-room recycling program, plastic and glass to start. Our associates are separating trash from recyclables and preparing them accordingly for the waste management service.
  • We reuse printer paper for scratch pads and think before we print documents or emails.
  • We collect all used soaps from guest rooms and ship them to Clean the World, a non-profit who sanitizes and makes them into new bars for needy children around the world.
