About

The Castle Hill Fitness Green Team has been created to reduce the organization’s carbon footprint, power consumption, water usage and landfill waste. We review current sustainability practices, develop and implement Green initiatives, and generate materials to better educate our staff and members about the importance of being Green. We hope to convey to our community the importance individual action and responsibility for ownership of sustainable practices.

What is the story behind the Green Team?

In 2012, one of our members recommended that we look into Austin Green Business Leaders program that was created by the Office of Sustainability (http://austintexas.gov/department/austin-green-business-leaders). After reviewing the program and its requirements we joined at the Gold level. One of the program requirements was for us to have a Green Team, so one was formed and currently we have 11 members in our team consisting of employees and gym members.

City of Austin Green Business Leader - Platinum LevelCurrently, Castle Hill is the only fitness club/gym recognized by the City of Austin as a Green Business Leader. The fitness center has many green initiatives to provide a healthy and resource efficient environment.

Our Green Initiatives

Landfill Waste Reduction

 

Power Consumption Practices

 

Creating a Smaller Carbon Footprint

 

Water Saving Initiatives

 

Future Initiatives include:

 

New Solar Touch-free faucets

Our recent faucets/shower heads upgrade reduced our water use by about 8%. This may not seem like a huge amount, but in our environment, that equates to 115,000 gallons per year of saved water.

Adding a canopy to the Outdoor Studio added much utility to the space, especially in hot summer months.

 

Join Our Team!

Currently we are looking for members who would like to join the ranks of our Green Team to help us continue find different ways to minimize our impact on environment. If you are interested in joining our team, please email vlad@castlehillfitness.com
