Recycling & Waste
We aim to minimise the amount of waste we send to landfill. We have taken the following steps:
- We separate our DMR, glass and food waste from general waste and encourage our guests to recycle as much as possible
- We have dedicated bottle banks throughout the site. Glass recycling uses less energy than making new glass products, which in turn reduces the strain on raw materials and resources.
- We offer food recycling. Food waste is used to produce both energy and high quality compost.
- All of our used cooking oil is collected to make greener fuel.
- Unused toilets rolls are donated to staff.
We aim to minimise our carbon footprint. We offer incentives to guests travelling by public transport to provide free cot and highchair hire. We offset the paper used in marketing literature with a tree planting scheme.
- We have a meadow which we leave uncut so wild flowers can grow to provide habitats for bees and butterflies.
- We have an insect hotel on site
- Our park is bordered by hedgerows which we protect with a one metre wildlife corridor
- We have bird boxes throughout the site
- We plant honey bee friendly plants which are sourced locally
- We are members of the Marine Conservation Society and South West Coastal Path Association
- We hold 'Bingo Beats' games whereby 50% of the takings are donated to charities and good causes.
- Every year we donate free holidays to local charitable causes for auction
- We have reduced the number of printed marketing leaflets by combining them with our park maps so all information is in a single printed format
- Our park maps are printed on recycled paper using ecologically friendly inks
- Local information is supplied in a wipeable format in the accommodation unit to reduce paper usage
- We have employed a print-stop-think policy across the company
- All booking confirmations are sent electronically where possible
