Sargeant Bay, BC


“We started our first BnB in in the North and it relied on water trucked to the property and stored in huge underground cisterns. Thoughtful management of every drop became second nature.”

“It is surprising to have people arrive so unaware of basic steps they can take to reduce waste. We need ways to prompt and help re-educate visitors of those values and practices.”
