What eco-friendly measures do you take in your B&B?

March 26, 2010 at 9:37 am 3 comments

We asked B&Bs on Twitter what eco-friendly measures they take. Here’s what they said…

@ChezLaChouette Solar panels to heat the hot water…and it’s a beautiful sunny day in the Limousin so they’re working.

@brookvillebandb Brookville Guest House Dublin is eco-conscious, all garbage is separated, sorted and recycled.

@campfirechris Eco measures – Drying laundry in outdoor canopy in rain. Recycling and re-using – tins for paint, paper for fire kits, compost.

@agaqueen The food we serve is so low-mileage it’s practically still! Anyone who has any sort of garden has absolutely no reason not to grow some food. Get digging!

@tweedviewbandb recycling, composting, water butt, energy saving practices, excellent insulation

@gilmorehouse energy efficient lightbulbs, low flush loos, large bottles shampoo etc, thermostatic heating control, towel policy, recycling as much as possible, encouraging wildlife etc.

@SouthLodgeBnB Ground source heat pump, thermal solar panels, rainwater collection/recycling, Klargester tank, recycling ventilation system, upgraded insulation, waste recycling, organic foods. I think that’s it.

    Eco-friendly accommodation doesn’t just matter to us – it is our (and everyone else’s) future.
    Recycling,composting,energy saving practices,bulk buying,towel policy,regulated heating,high insulation throughout,low energy light bulbs etc…
    This costs nothing and all accommodations can and should have these pratices in place.
    Our extension in 2011 will be a totally eco friendly purpose built project.
