Green Earth Project

Green Earth Project

L'Auberge is a designated Surfrider Foundation, Ocean Friendly California resort. Our team incorporates green practices and sustainability into our daily operations.

L’Auberge Del Mar is Strawless
In an effort to reduce waste and to keep our oceans clean and free from plastic and trash, L’Auberge Del Mar will only offer straws to our guests upon request.

Fresh Food Locally Sourced
The Food & Beverage Department, including our signature restaurant, KITCHEN 1540, is guided by the principles of sustainability. Local produce and sustainable seafood are prepared and served daily. The kitchen is equipped with 100% recycled vinyl/pvc flooring, energy efficient lighting and earth friendly equipment. We donate used oil for Biodiesel fuel conversion and all of our to-go boxes are biodegradable.

Our Organic Spa
All products used carried by Spa L'Auberge are 100% organic.

Daily Practices
We run a Recycling Program and Linen Reuse Program in our guestrooms. All guestrooms use energy efficient light bulbs to reduce the impact of depleting energy sources. We use 100% biodegradable guestroom key cards and offer a "Green Meetings Package" for corporate groups.

Sustainable Technology for Food Waste
The ORCA is a machine that "digests" up to 2,400 pounds (over 1 ton) of food waste per day. Within 24 hours, this technology turns food waste into environmentally safe water that flows straight into the municipal sewage system.  Through a process called "aerobic digestion," the ORCA technology constantly churns all this material, adding oxygen that accelerates the time it takes to transform the food waste disposal into earth-friendly water.

Associate Education
Our staff is taught green standards during orientation. We provide recycling bins in every department to recycle bottles, cans and paper. Throughout the year the hotel holds environmentally focused events like an Earth Day Oceanic Preservation Paddle-Out.
