Green Tourism & Cromald Cottages

 

Green Tourism & Cromald Cottages

Here at Cromald Cottages – we thought it was about time we thought about our impact on our environment and have with the “catalyst” in the form of solar panels being installed in 2012, began to think and implement other ways in which we can do our bit.

Here are a few things that we already do:-

Solar Panels – Which were installed in 2012, are 12 ground mounted solar panels per cottage, this produces electricity for the cottages and any unused electricity goes to the national grid.

Lights bulbs – We have replaced as many bulbs as possible with energy saving bulbs.

Tea & Coffee – On arrival we like to offer our guests a welcome tray, we only offer fair-trade tea & coffee.

Cleaning Products – We mainly use eco friendly cleaning products in the preparation of our guest’s arrival.

Local Shops - We try to use local shops and produce, and local tradesman where possible.

Bags – We provide recycled cotton shopping bags for use during your stay.

Firewood – The firewood we offer at the cottages, is sourced from fallen or dead trees, here on Cally Estate, we plant between 1,000 & 3,000 annually.

Booking System – In early 2012 we over hauled our website completely re designing it and included being able to book directly online. This was a major step forward for us and has proved to be a more productive and efficient way for both us and our potential customers to communicate with us quicker; this also helps in the reduction of our office supplies and reduces our postage costs.

Plans for the future

Electricity - We are looking into changing our electricity tariff to a green plan, which for every unit we use, they will match it with a clean unit of hydro electricity.

Appliances - When we need to replace any appliance we will look and purchase the most energy efficient product available.
