Environmental Policy

At the Blockade Runner Beach Resort, we strive to attain high performance standards both environmentally and socially. Our aim is to bring positive benefit to the community in which we operate through high quality services, economic growth, environmental protection, community involvement, and employment.

“We are truly blessed to be where we are, and here at the Blockade Runner, we are committed to doing our part to protect the beautiful gift we’ve been given. By implementing small changes, we are making a huge difference in lessening our environmental impact on our surroundings helping to provide a healthy ecosystem for future generations.”

Sustainable Meetings

Did you know that American’s throw away 25 billion Styrofoam cups every year and 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour? Moreover, many paper cups are coated with plastic and therefore, cannot be recycled?

Our meeting spaces feature re-usable, recyclable, and renewable products to reduce single-use disposables from our waste stream. In 2016 Blockade Runner was recognized as an Ocean Friendly Establishment by the Plastic Ocean Project, and the North Carolina Green Travel Initiative awarded our resort their highest honor, Three Dogwood Blossoms, for efforts to reduce waste, conserve energy, and provide community outreach.
