Our Green Policy

 

Our Green Policy

We are delighted to announce a new partnership with Trees for Life.

In 2019 we have made a pledge to offset our annual carbon footprint by planting native trees in the Scottish Highlands. This also has huge beneficial factors to the local wildlife and ecosystem. To find out more about this fantastic charity visit - https://treesforlife.org.uk.

We enjoy taking people into the outdoors to have fun adventures but we also realise this comes at a cost to the environment.

To minimise our impact and any damage we might cause we:

  • aim to be responsible visitors to an area and to camp with a Leave No Trace ethic
  • our vehicles are now modern and cause less pollution and achieve higher mileages than older vehicles
  • encourage and educate people on how to travel lightly

In the Office, we work hard to be responsible and aim to follow the mantra of reduce, reuse and recycle : We

  • recycle paper whenever possible
  • use proper crockery not paper or polystyrene cups
  • have recycling bins for cardboard, paper, food and plastics
  • try to wear more clothes rather than having the office heating on high !
  • our new canoes are delivered in large amounts of plastic and bubble wrap - this is all passed onto be reused by two local businesses, an art gallery and a thrift shop.
