Giving

"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” –Anne Frank

At host2coast, we share a passion to contribute to this community that does so much for all of us and to do our small part to reduce our carbon footprint.

 

H2C COMMUNITY OUTREACH

The Deep Well Project of Hilton Head Island. We support them with monthly donations of non-perishable food items, paper products, toiletries, and personal hygiene products.

The Sandbox of Hilton Head Island. We support their scholarship program allowing children to attend their learning programs which may otherwise be unable to participate due to financial need.

Plogging on Hilton Head Island. This movement began in 2016 and continues to grow around the world. Plogging is jogging (or walking) and picking up litter along your path. Mark is a “plogger” and is rewarded by the health benefits and receiving smiles and thank you’s from people along the way.

 

WORLDWIDE OUTREACH

Our focus on the environment and the welfare of others is shown in the amenities we select for our guests.

Our welcome bags are made of recycled paper and can be reused and recycled.

Each bag contains 2 liters of Boxed Water is Better in safe, recyclable containers. Through BWB, we support the Ocean Blue Project, which helps clean “our world’s ocean” of plastics. This extends to working with the National Forest Foundation to plant trees from seeds specially selected based on climate and region where the trees will best grow. Check out Boxed Water’s “Eco-Friendly Challenge for Every Month of the Year!” for easy ways you can help the environment.

We put cookies (yummy chocolate chunk!) in each bag. These cookies are purchased from Feed Your Soul. Through purchases such as ours, meals are provided for those who would otherwise go hungry.

We purchase Method hand and dish soap amenities because this company provides planet-friendly products made of recyclable materials and plant-based, locally sourced ingredients. To eliminate adding more plastic to the environment (even if it is recyclable), our amenities crew will refill the containers, wipe them down, and sanitize them for each guest.

The bar soap we purchase for tub and shower is an earth-conscious product free of parabens and never tested on animals. The packaging is recyclable, as well.

Let’s leave a legacy, not a footprint. Like a pebble tossed into a pond, we are doing small things that can significantly impact if more people act.
