Angel Island’s Environmental Commitment

Angel Island Recreation Company is honored to be an authorized concessionaire for California State Parks. As part of this partnership, Basecamp Hospitality’s mission is aligned with our agency, which is “to provide for the health, inspiration, and education of the people of California by helping to preserve the state’s extraordinary biological diversity, protecting its most valued natural and cultural resources, and creating opportunities for high-quality outdoor recreation.” At Angel Island, we lead by example and aim to foster a culture of environmental stewardship amongst our employees and guests. Angel Island Recreation Company focuses on four (4) core areas which set the foundation for the company’s Environmental Responsibility Plan.

1. Waste Management

  • Please recycle! We offer 2-bin waste stations for recycle and landfill.
  • We sell canned water in lieu of single-use plastics.
  • We use compostable service ware and paper straws.
  • We serve condiments in dispensers in lieu of plastic single-serve packets.

2. Watershed Health

  • To protect our watershed from harmful pollutants, we do not use cleaning chemicals. Instead, we use a series of plant-based, non-toxic products.
  • We work with California State Parks to remove weeds and invasive plant species from the island. By supporting the health of native flora, we also support a healthy ecosystem for our native wildlife.

3. Responsible Supply Chain Management

  • Our excellent food & beverage team takes great pride in building partnerships with local, high-quality farmers and food purveyors. Come and celebrate California’s bounty with us!
  • Our retail and souvenir shop features crafts from local Bay Area artisans and trendy American-made apparel that contains recycled fibers and other sustainably sourced materials. Come to our shop and get some Angel Island swag!

4. Energy & Fossil Fuel Reduction

  • At Angel Island, we celebrate all forms of non-motorized transportation. We offer guided hiking tours, guided Segway tours, and bicycle rentals!
