Friday's Photos - Green Resort and Spa

_

_
Solage Calistoga - where comfortable meets chic - located in Calistoga, CA. (just a few miles up the road from my house). This amazing resort and spa integrates green features throughout the 22-acre property-from alternative energy sources such as solar panels on rooftops to chemical free bath products. Too cool!!
_
Top 5 Green Design Points
_
1. Solar rooftop panels throughout the property help reduce overall
energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions (CO2).

_
2. Housekeeping cleaning program is standardized on non-toxic
products used throughout the property.

_
3. Solbar cuisine features locally grown produce sourced primarily
through small, organic farms.

_
4. Eco-solution flooring and paints along with natural fiber and
recycled materials are used in guest room and public space
furnishings

_
5. On-site geothermal water is used to produce radiant heating in the
Spa Solage treatment buildings, Bathhouse soaking pools and Adult
and Family swimming pools, reducing use of natural gas for
heating. Additionally, the passive cooling architectural design of the
Bathhouse eliminates the need for air conditioning, further reducing
our energy consumption.
