It’s possible to provide a high quality customer experience whilst being environmentally friendly. Our members demonstrate this perefctly and research shows that customers are actively looking for environmentally conscious businesses more than ever.
Caring for the environment is fundamental to our business. Our guests expect us to be responsible. And the landscape is so important to our livelihoods. Our businesses rely on the landscape - why would we not want to protect it?
Joining the Green tourism Business Scheme was one of the best things we ever did. We have halved our waste to landfill by 50% saving us nearly £90,000 per year & we have also made large savings on our utility bills.
We would strongly recommend any business considering joining Green Tourism to do it. It's positively exciting & very rewarding when you receive the recognition. Just remember it’s a journey not just an award.
Accreditation reassures customers we’re not just saying we’re green we actually have the proof of our commitment ! Bi-annual inspections help us focus on future improvements & there is help from a friendly face if we need it.
