Going green, at the New Wave Rafting Co. headquarters, alongside the Rio Grande river, outside of Taos, New Mexico
We at New Wave want to do what we can to mitigate the impact of our activities on the environment that we hold so dear. Living, as we do, right on the Rio Grande makes us that much more motivated to preserve this gorgeous place. We’ve been recycling our cans and bottles for sometime now, and this year our Operations Manager, Britt Huggins, built a composting outhouse for the use of the staff that lives here. The composting process turns out what is called “Humanure”. The Humanure outhouse is a whole lot nicer than a portable toilet! We have also installed drip irrigation for our orchard and other trees, and will devote an additional post to that.
