Hotel Terra Jackson Hole: Luxurious and Sustainable

Share |

Hotel Terra Outside Hotel Terra Jackson Hole, is just as luxurious as it is sustainable. Located in Teton Village, WY the green hotel is LEED-certified with 72 rooms and the full service Chill Spa.

Hotel Terra also is home to the Italian restaurant, Osteria, one of the hottest tables in Jackson Hole, as well as Terra Café, which is dedicated to using organic ingredients to create scrumptious crepes, lattes and other light fare.

Hotel terra inside Besides rooms that feature all-natural and organic materials, here are some of the major ways Hotel Terra Jackson Hole is making eco-friendly strides.

·   100% recycled "EcoShake" shingles.

  • More than 90% of the hotel interiors capture natural daylight and have access to outdoor views.
  • Heating and cooling system also controlled by hi tech building management system that allows rooms to be powered down when not in use and calibrated for specific occupancy expectations.
  • Radiant heating in the flooring of the parking garage, which runs along the entire ground level of the hotel, reducing direct heat loss and minimizing energy use.
  • Energy Star approved, extremely efficient windows, with Low E, a highly reflective coating that protects interiors from infrared light. This keeps heat inside during the winter and outside during the summer, reducing the need for energy used for supplemental heat or cooling.
  • Water conservation systems: dual flush toilets, low flow water fixtures, waterless urinals in Men’s public restrooms, and native landscaping requiring no irrigation -accounts for a 34% reduction in water use.

Toilets account for approx. 30% of water used indoors. By installing a Dual Flush toilet you can save between 40% and 70% of drinking water being flushed down the toilet, depending how old the toilet is you are going to replace.
If you are serious about saving water, want a toilet that really works and is affordable, I would highly recommend a Caroma Dual Flush toilet. Caroma toilets offer a patented dual flush technology consisting of a 0.8 Gal flush for liquid waste and a 1.6 Gal flush for solids. On an average of 5 uses a day (4 liquid/ 1 solid) a Caroma Dual Flush toilet uses an average of 0.96 gallons per flush. The new Sydney Smart uses only 1.28 and 0.8 gpf, that is an average of 0.89 gallons per flush. This is the lowest water consumption of any toilet available in the US. Caroma, an Australian company set the standard by giving the world its first successful two button dual flush system in the nineteen eighties and has since perfected the technology. Also, with a full 3.5″ trapway, these toilets virtually never clog. All of Caroma’s toilets are on the list of WaterSense labeled HET’s http://www.epa.gov/watersense/pp/find_het.htm and also qualify for several toilet rebate programs available in the US. Please visit my blog http://pottygirl.wordpress.com/2008/08/01/what-you-should-know-about-toilets/ to learn more or go to http://www.caromausa.com to learn where you can find Caroma toilets locally.

Hey, check out this article on Terra Jackson. We are switching our host over to a more sustainable host, so there will continue to be some adjustments being made to our site for the next week, two at the most hopefully, but it is a really beautiful site and when we’re done we’ll even have the video for Terra Jackson on there as well. Hope you enjoy. It’ll get better in a week or two, I do my best to promise…
