At Ste. Anne’s we believe in being conscious of the effect our behavior has on our home. Over the years, we have adopted many green practices, reflecting our owner, Jim Corcoran’s belief that “humans should strive to give back what they take from the environment, and in doing so should improve the quality of the world we live in.” Fortuitously, the spa is built on a natural aquifer, a spring 150 feet below ground. It supplies the inn with water for all of its uses, including laundry, and is used to fill the swimming pools, current pool, and hot tubs. All of the water used at Ste. Anne’s is recycled through the natural reedbed septic system, which was introduced in 2002. Our reedbed system fits in nicely to the rural setting of Ste. Anne’s, and attracts numerous birds.
OUR SUSTAINABLE INITIATIVES
NO PLASTIC BOTTLES
Instead of offering bottled water, Ste. Anne’s Spa has multiple hydration stations at the Inn with natural spring water from our property.
GARDENS AND LAWN
The breathtaking gardens and green lawns at Ste. Anne’s Spa are herbicide-free, in keeping with the spa’s commitment to natural, organic products.
In the spring of 2019 our team planted 1,000 trees of various species on our property along Academy Hill Road, Grafton.
We practice rotational grazing, always moving the animals so they are always eating on fresh ground, giving the ground more time to grow back and re-establish its nutrient content.
Our washers use cold water only and capture and reuse rinse water. Our dryers are moisture sensing instead of timed, and we are champions at recycling.
SKIN NOURISHMENT LINE
Our Skin Nourishment product line was designed with the environment in mind, based on 100% pure botanical ingredients that provide the skin with what it needs to thrive optimally.
CARBON NEUTRAL PACKAGING
We’re making the switch to recyclable, compostable packaging that’s carbon neutral, with carbon credits purchased to offset the emissions created by our packaging.
