We’re concerned about the environment and its depleting resources. You will notice that we are trying to reduce our carbon footprint with the many environmentally friendly initiatives that dot the property. We encourage you to join us in our efforts.
Save Water: Water at The Birdcage is drawn from a natural spring about 1.5 KM away. It is an extremely scarce resource in our neighbourhood and we urge you to use it optimally, not waste it in any manner. Don’t worry, there’s plenty available to furnish our needs, just enjoy it responsibly.
Rain Water Harvesting: We’re excited when it rains. A 40000 ltrs rain water storage system in our backyard works hard towards collecting, storing and recycling this water so that we can use it judiciously for Gardening and other external application requirements around the property.
Solar Power: The use of Solar Power too finds it way in to The Birdcage, with some investments. Hot water in our bathrooms is courtesy Solar Water Heating Plants. We also have an electric backup for snowy days.
Organic Kitchen Garden: The words farm to table ring true here at The Birdcage. We house a small organic kitchen garden that is used to grow vegetables and herbs. We also source a lot of organic produce from nearby farms and orchards, making sure everything you eat is truly, farm fresh!
Minimum Use of Plastic: Plastic is non-biodegradable and once swallowed up by Mother Earth, it will stay there forever causing much havoc to the environment. We try to use as little plastic as possible and also encourage you to do the same.
Mountain Biking: A bad day on Mountain Bike always beats a good day in the office. And that’s exactly why we encourage you to go biking in our neighborhood. Just pick up an MTB from us for INR 500 for half day and go have fun, be active!
