Orofino Works Towards Green Tourism Certification
From day one Orofino has been committed to environmental business practices. We built an extremely efficient straw bale building to house our wines and our tasting room. We moved to lightweight, eco-friendly bottles to lower our environmental footprint. We added a significant solar power project to reduce our use of non-renewable energy. We equipped our new vacation suites with energy efficient appliances and LED lighting. Green thinking has always been a part of our business ethos. We have now initiated a relationship with Greenstep Canada to help us streamline our practices. They will help us improve our practices using their third party energy audits. We look forward to partnering with the world’s largest sustainable tourism certification program. Watch for more information as we progress through the certification program!
