In spring of 2012, the Big Blend Media team of Nancy Reid and Lisa Smith embarked on their Big Blend Spirit of America Tour, beginning their visits to all 401 National Parks and their Gateway Communities. Traveling full-time until Aug. 25, 2017, the tour is their effort to promote the full funding and protection of America’s 401 National Park units, and showcase them as economically important recreational, educational, natural, and heritage destinations.

As part of their tour they visited, Muir Woods, Pt. Reyes, and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, all located in Marin County, and they stayed at the Inn Marin! They were so excited about how environmentally friendly the Inn Marin is that they created this video featuring our Green Guru, Robert Marshall.

redwood credit union novato bank in marinWe want to send a HUGE thank you to our new bank Redwood Credit Union, for all of the help and support they have been providing to us. They helped create a smooth transition in refinancing our Inn and we could not be more grateful!

Over the past few months Richard DeRamon of Redwood Credit Union, or as we call him “Mr. Wonderful,” has been a huge asset and time saver to our business. It is never a step out of his way to help with our needs, and he always has a huge smile with encouraging words to lighten up any work day. He is friendly and knowledgeable in what he does, and he always has great suggestions of how to improve business!

We now have the capabilities to use new forms of technology with someone to hold our hand through the process. Recently, we have started to use a mobile card reader, a plug-in device that allows you to run credit cards from your smart phone. Banquets and events have never been easier and a “cash bar” is no longer the only option we have for our guests.

So thank you again, Redwood Credit Union, for your insight, assistance and great customer service!

Last month I talked about conserving water with your irrigation system using ET Water Hermit crab controllers, and this month I’ve been thinking about how else you can save water. I looked into reclaimed water systems you can build to use water a second time- to water your garden or flush your toilets!

I found two great YouTube videos to get you started on your reclaimed water system. The first one will show you how you can build a system for capturing shower or sink water and using it to flush toilets.

The second video shows how to build your own rain capture system from your down spouts on the outside of your house. You can build your rain water system as large as you want just by attaching more barrels.

Good luck and save water!

green hotel lodging in marinThe State of California Green Lodging program was created under Governor Schwarzenegger to encourage state and local government travelers to seek out and give preference to certified “green hotels”.  The state has made green hotels a priority because hotels generate tremendous amounts of waste. Encouraging hotels to switch to environmentally preferable products and practices creates tremendous savings of our precious resources which benefits all of the citizens of CA.

The California Green Lodging Program certifies lodging facilities that demonstrate water and energy conservation, waste minimization, recycling, environmentally friendly purchasing, program sustainability, and pollution prevention. The program is committed to demonstrating the highest standards of integrity and environmental ethics for the State of California. The process of becoming certified involves a rigorous inspection. Hotels are inspected for re-certification once every three years.

The Inn Marin has recently been re-certified at the highest level “Environmentalist”!!
