Wanaka Lakeview Holiday Park

Sustainability

Here at Wanaka Lakeview Holiday Park, sustainability and protecting the environment are extremely important to us. Therefore, we are doing our bit to help protect it for future generations. We aim to continue reducing our carbon footprint and the impact we have on the environment around us.

Here are some of the things we already do around the park:

  • Use energy efficient light bulbs.
  • Avoid single-use plastic in accommodation units e.g., coffee, tea, sugar, and milk are all in jars.
  • The cleaner’s buggy is electric.
  • Use environmentally friendly cleaning products such as vinegar (where appropriate).
  • Have a communal herb garden by the small facility block.
  • Utilize our solar heated water in the main facility block.
  • Feed guests' food scraps to our chickens.
  • Donate guests' food and toiletries to the foodbank and our local social enterprise Wanaka Wastebusters.
  • Reuse garden waste around the park as mulch.
  • Purchase locally and buy in bulk.
  • Have washing lines as well as dryers to reduce energy use.
  • Program movement sensors on lights in the facility blocks so they dim overnight/when no one is in the facility block.

We stand by Kaitiakitanga meaning we are guardians over the environment around us, we need to help protect and preserve our surroundings to the best of our ability. Manaakitanga meaning hospitality, is also a necessary part. It is important to us that you feel welcome and at home around our park. We hope to do this by continually updating our park and policy regarding sustainability. As guests staying at our park, we ask you to help us achieve this, we ask you to be more mindful of the impact your actions have on our environment. Things you can do include:

  • Do not litter: Use the bins provided around the Park so it does not end up in our beautiful lake.
  • Fill the recycling bins with clean and appropriate waste to divert it from landfill. For more info on which plastics can be recycled with us click here.
  • Switch off lights and electrical appliances when not in use.
  • Conserve water as much as possible, whether it be having shorter showers, turning off the tap when brushing teeth or washing your dishes in a sink of water instead of under a running tap.
  • Dispose of wastewater at the Dump Station outside rather than down the storm water drains which go straight to the lake.
  • Choose to take a photo of our literature and Park map rather than take a paper copy.

We are working towards the goal of making our holiday park as viable for the planet as possible. But there are still some areas where we can improve. This includes:

  • Upgrading the rest of the petrol run cars and carts used around the park to being electric.
  • No bin liners in accommodation rooms as well as around the park.
  • Reusable park maps for guests.
  • Collecting rainwater.
  • Water reducing taps in the facility buildings.

There are always things we can work on so we would love to hear any suggestions you might have.
