At present we:
  • Recycle plastic, cardboard, tin & glass
  • Use energy efficient light bulbs
  • Use natural cleaning products
  • Use biodegradable black rubbish bags
  • Send old clothes to Salvation Army
  • Recycle office paper
  • Have flow restrictors on showers and taps
  • Encourage guests to hang bath mats that don't need washing
  • Educate Staff on importance of conserving energy
  • Dispose of edible waste to local pig farmers
