Environmental responsibility is an ethic everyone in the company lives and teaches. We leave no trace of our passage; we “take only pictures and leave only footprints.” We have a much extended recycling program. This includes reusing all plastics on trips from Gatorade bottles to sour cream containers. Returned brochures are sent to travel agents and are placed in rack holders. SGE recycles everything else. All faxes and printers use recycled paper. All our meals are prepared fresh. Many of our vegetables are from our own garden. We commission local farmers to grow fresh produce, keeping jobs at home. Our meats and chesses are from local Ye Ol’ Geezer Meats in Moab, Utah.
