Green Policy

Respect and Care for the Community of Life

When available and feasible, we will use cleaning and personal products, office supplies and paper products that are:

  • scent-free
  • non-toxic
  • chlorine-free
  • formaldehyde-free
  • dye-free
  • recycled (high post-consumer content)
  • recyclable
  • biodegradable
  • not tested on animals
  • support sustainability and health

We ask sangha members to support our efforts by not wearing scented products at IRC and to not use fabric softeners or scented laundry detergent in clothes worn on retreats.

Food Waste and Recycling

Our food waste is picked up each week to be used for composting.
Our county has mixed recycling for everything else.  We recycle paper products in the same containers as cans and glass.
