Famous, luxurious, stunning La Costa Resort in Southern California has undergone huge renovations and gone “green” in the process.  Nestled in 400 garden acres near the beach in Carlsbad, CA, this delightful coastal California hotel, in a village setting, is a haven of comfort and escape where one can do it all…or if preferred…nothing at all.

Golf and Tennis have always been center stage at La Costa.  Women’s professional tennis returns to La Costa in August of 2011.  The Mercury Insurance Open will be held July 30 thru August 7, 2011.  This tournament will feature top players such as Kim Clijsters, Jelena Jankovic, Samantha Stosur, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Nadia Petrova, and many more.

Beyond the La Costa legendary golf courses…La Costa also provides exceptional golf instruction, including the La Costa Golf Academy and Golf Flexibility classes with Roger Fredericks.  The Casualmere® luxury bamboo golf shirt on the right is perfect for this luxury resort wear.

This resort has recently reduced its kitchen food waste volume by a factor of almost five times due to two new industrial compost machines.  Each handle 250 pounds of food waste per day serving two different kitchens.

Each day approximately 40 pounds of compost is produced for the groundskeeping team.  This addition is part of a much larger effort to reduce waste at the 610-room resort. From January through July 2010, 80,000 pounds of cardboard was recycled and 122,000 pounds of commingled materials was also recycled.

The commingled materials and cardboard…all are reduced in volume thanks to compactors. A baler will soon be purchased as well for the shrink wrap that surrounds packages. This recycling program allowed the resort had to qualify for Green Seal Bronze certification.

In addition La Costa  has also cut its electricity, gas and water consumption. In some areas as much as 36% since 2007.  Digital thermostats, a computerized energy management system for public spaces and meeting rooms, and lighting retrofits have all contributed to a reduction in energy usage. As part of a test program with its local utility, the utility remotely monitors the fire time on the boilers used at the resort for further savings.

Reclaimed water is used to help keep the resort’s two 18-hole golf courses green. The resort has been experimenting with a drip irrigation system…its off-site laundry reclaims 50 to 80 percent of the water it uses. One of the resort’s goals is to reduce the amount of turf on its golf courses to further reduce water demand.

This is another perfect venue for your Casualmere® brand eco-clothing of 100% bamboo (viscose made from bamboo).  The casual basic styling of Casualmere® is perfect for an elegant resort like La Costa…and also perfect for a day down the hill at the beach…or in a local beach bar for a typical So.Cal. day at the beach.

For the ladies you will look beautiful with little effort wearing our basic bamboo knit dress made from Casualmere® bamboo fabric.  These breathable luxury items are perfect “travel clothing” as they pack very compactly due to the fine, strong, elegant yarn character.

La Costa and Casualmere® and know you are being eco-freindly at the same time.

ENJOY-

    First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick
    question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve
    had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my
    ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing
    however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!

    • I suggest just start off the top of your head, when finished take your last paragraph and put it first, then edit. Usually it will get you structured more easily. If blogging be sure to use photos…any photos.
