They use natural soaps, detergents, and cleaning products. \n\nThe Scandinavian Inn focuses on a simple approach to comfort, and continually seeks new ways to operate in an environmentally-sensitive manner. Steps taken to date include those listed below:\n* Operate an energy-efficient geothermal heating/cooling system\n* Purchase organic produce at cooperatives and our Farmer's Market, using regionally-grown items when available\n* Serve free-range meats and eggs, locally raised as available\n* Provide cloth napkins at breakfast\n* Brew shade-grown, fair market coffees\n* Line-dry towels and linens outdoors when the weather permits\n* Apply no synthetic lawn chemicals\n* Mow using a non-motorized reel lawnmower and shovel snow by hand\n* Compost\n* Provide vegetable-based bath soaps\n* Use environmentally-friendly detergents and cleaning products.\n* Do not over-use air conditioning.\n\nWe recognize the need to provide comfort to our guests -- our bedrooms have air conditioning. But we like to give open windows, fans, and natural ventilation a chance first.\n\nEnvironmental sensitivity is an ever-evolving effort, and we welcome suggestions from our guests.
