We are Silver graded in the Green Tourism Business Scheme. We are constantly looking at ways we can improve our environmental performance.
Over the past 18 months we have: upgraded the “red steading” with high levels of insulation (sheep’s wool); changed one of vehicles for an LPG one; been purchasing low sulphur “less dirty” diesel for the other vehicle (it costs more but we get better MPG and it is cleaner for the environment); changed our paper supply to a real recycled paper supplier and changed virtually all our cleaning products to eco products.
When clients are with us we impart our knowledge about the environment, without ramming it down their throats! Patrick is a Leave No Trace Trainer (www.lnt.org) and is now an International Mountain Leader which requires a good knowledge of the environment.
“Thanks so much for a wonderful day and sharing your enthusiasm which is contagious and your program was perfect in terms of a challenging hike and scenic views. Not only was the hike beautiful but to end with a yoga class was just a perfect way to stretch and rejuvenate tired muscles. Thanks again for your hospitality! ”
