ENVIRONMENT

Mr. Charles Fraser, founder of The Sea Pines Resort, was a true pioneer who was passionate about preserving and conserving the environment, and we are proud to continue his honorable vision and spirit of innovation. The following represents The Sea Pines Resort's green history and current initiatives:

The Sea Pines Resort Recycling Efforts in 2014 Infographic

Green Hospitality Program:

  • The Sea Pines Resort was recognized in February 2015 for exemplary recycling efforts by the S.C. Smart Business Recycling Program and Green Hospitality Program, ran by South Carolina state's Department of Health and Environmental Control.

  • The Sea Pines Resort recycled more than 400 tons of material in 2014, and reduced its energy and water consumption by using programmable thermostats and lights and recycled wastewater and HVAC condensate. It also saved money by turning food and landscaping waste into usable compost. These and other waste reduction efforts saved Sea Pines $84,000 compared to its pre-waste reduction and recycling years.

Our Natural Resources:

  • Home to 30 species of mammals, 133 types of birds, 11 kinds of fish, reptiles, amphibians and a variety of other Lowcountry creatures, The Sea Pines Resort is a natural sanctuary. Mr. Fraser's vision was to develop and improve the land for human enjoyment, while preserving its natural beauty.

  • Approximately one fourth of the land within Sea Pines is dedicated to open spaces, including a 605-acre forest preserve, with roadways and golf fairways built around natural resources. The design of The Harbour Town Yacht Basin, which was based upon the preservation of The Sea Pines Resort's famous Liberty Oak tree, is a prime example of Mr. Fraser's revolutionary concept.

  • The Sea Pines Resort Recreation Department and H2O Sports offer a wide array of EcoTours within our forest preserve, or along the coast, as a way of educating residents and guests about Hilton Head Island's wildlife and eco-system. They also offer many other educational programs, such as fishing and crabbing, while promoting a 'catch and release' policy.

Preserving our Heritage

Golf at The Sea Pines Resort:

  • Our three golf courses - Harbour Town Golf Links, Heron Point by Pete Dye and the Atlantic Dunes By Davis Love Ⅲ - are all certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuaries. In order to earn this designation, we achieved certification in the following six categories: Environmental Planning, Chemical Use Reduction & Safety, Water Conservation, Water Quality Management, Wildlife & Habitat Management, Outreach and Education. In order to remain certified, we need to meet re-certification requirements every two years.

  • The Sea Pines Resort is GEO Certified® at all three golf courses. The Golf Environment Organization is an international organization that certifies that The Sea Pines Resort's golf courses are managed in a sustainable and environmentally ethical manner.

  • Our golf maintenance team makes every effort to preserve the environment on a daily basis. For example, the water used to maintain our pristine golf courses is reclaimed - filtered and reused, and all engine oil and plastic containers are recycled.

Keeping Golf Green

The Inn at Harbour Town:

  • The Inn at Harbour Town offers its guests the option of having their towels and linens refreshed, encouraging reuse in order to conserve water & energy.

  • The Inn also offers Molton Brown amenities, featuring products that are never tested on animals. Environmental concern plays an integral role in Molton Brown's business philosophy and the company is actively engaged in recycling efforts in order to minimize impact on the environment.

  • The Inn at Harbour Town also maintains a full recycling program for both in-house and guest purposes. In addition to recycling plastic, glass, bottles and propane tanks used for preparing guests' breakfasts, the inn recycles all newspapers, magazines, paper and cardboard.

Maintaining Our Facilities:

  • Fluorescent light bulbs, as well as batteries used in smoke detectors and remote controls, are recycled.

  • We secure salvage companies to handle our unwanted refrigeration/kitchen equipment and scrap metals, which result from renovations and equipment replacement.

The Harbour Town Yacht Basin:

  • The Harbour Town Yacht Basin staff's ongoing conservation and preservation efforts, including a commitment to environmentally sound operating and maintenance procedures, has enabled the Harbour Town Yacht Basin to earn recertification in 2012 as a "Clean Marina." The Clean Marina program is administered by the SC Department of Health & Environmental Control (DHEC), the Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management and the South Carolina Marine Association.

  • We collect and recycle fishing line at both the Harbour Town Yacht Basin and the lakes in the Sea Pines Forest Preserve. For more information about this recycling program sponsored by Palmetto Pride please visit: SC Monofilament Recycling Program.

Food & Beverage Operations:

  • Providing the SC Department of Natural Resources with oyster shells from Topside Waterfront Restaurant, Quarterdeck and Crazy Crab to be cleaned and re-planted in the Harbour Town Yacht Basin. Adding additional oysters to our waterways is invaluable, as an oyster cleans 2.5 gallons of water per hour.

  • Adopted use of Kraft YES Packs for salad dressing at all food & beverage outlets at The Sea Pines Resort; Kraft YES Packs produce 86 percent less waste and are made with 50 percent less energy than the rigid plastic container which was previously used. Learn more.

  • Using coffee grounds and vegetative waste obtained from the Harbour Town Bakery & Café as compost, and condensation from the bakery’s air conditioners for flowerbed irrigation

Offices & Administration:

  • All of the administration buildings and offices of The Sea Pines Resort are dedicated to recycling 100 percent of customer and company produced cardboard and office paper. These locations include The Sea Pines Resort Welcome Center, the Harbour Town Conference Center, The Inn at Harbour Town, the Harbour Town Yacht Basin Office and all of our pro shops and food & beverage offices.

  • We strive to reduce energy consumption by turning off office lights that are not in use and using fluorescent bulbs where possible.

  • The Sea Pines Resort offers a recycling center, open Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9am-1pm, in an effort to encourage residents, staff and guests to be environmentally conscious through recycling. The recycling center, located at The Shops at Sea Pines Center and staffed by The Sea Pines Resort, collects cardboard, paper, newspapers, magazines and cereal boxes, as well as plastic, glass, aluminum and tin.
