Preserving our Environment at Castlepoint Beach
Means guardianship, care and protection. It provides a basis for our approach to sustainably managing what we have and building an environment for current and future generations
Implies a reciprocal responsibility upon a host, and an invitation to a visitor to experience the very best we have to offer. This reflects our intention to move forward together, based on a shared and uniquely New Zealand approach.
What we are doing at Castlepoint Holiday Park and Motels:
Energy and water saving: We are installing devices that reduce the amount of electricity and water used at the park.
Recycling: Waste management stations are located throughout the park and green re cycling bins at our motel units to encourage the responsible disposal of rubbish.
Environmental: We have undertaken a tree planting programme both within the park and on surrounding hills
What you can do:
Energy and water saving: Turn off lights and electrical appliances when not in use, re-use towels by drying them on our clothes lines, close doors during cold weather to keep heat in, limit the amount of time you spend in the shower.
Recycling: Sort your rubbish correctly. Leave unwanted magazines and books for others to enjoy.
Environmental: Look after our trees and gardens in our Holiday Park and the Castlepoint Reserve.
Do not ride motorcycles or other vehicles on the sand dunes.
Do not remove fossils from the reserve.
