Protecting the environment has always been one of our primary commitments since day 1.  The Croff House’s use of environmentally friendly cleaning products is one way.  Using energy derived primarily from renewable sources is another. The inn’s stringent recycling policy is yet another one of the ways we honor this commitment.  Delphina, The Croff House’s outstanding Innkeeper, thought of another way in which we can enhance our efforts.  By replacing pork based products at breakfast with vegetarian options made with certified non-GMO ingredients we are able to help in protecting the environment even further.  This change will take effect beginning in May 2019.

A post on DowntoEarth.org entitled “Top 10 Reasons Why It’s Green to Go Veggie” highlights the environmental benefits achieved.  Many people agree that protecting the environment is a priority for them personally.  However, many don’t realize the effect many animal farming methods have on the planet.  Reducing global warming, saving water, and reducing pollution are three of the ten points the post highlights.  Much of the information is common sense.  Yet we are unaware of almost all of them.In doing some research we found two products.

protecting the environmentThe first, Amy’s Veggie Sausage, is a great alternative to pork sausage.  Described as having “a delightful smoky flavor”.  The sausages are made from organic quinoa and vegetables.  They are also dairy free/lactose free/tree nut free/vegan/kosher!

protecting the enviromentThe second product is Smart Bacon® from Lightlife.  Promised to deliver that hearty bacon taste, Smart Bacon is vegan and free of saturated fat and cholesterol.

Who knew that protecting the environment could even include the breakfast table?  Well, now you know!
