Green Earth Project
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 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 and our to-go boxes are biodegradable.
Our Organic Spa
Spa L’Auberge prides itself on the use of organic products. Most of the products used in treatments and carried in the retail store are organic.
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.
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.
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.
