Having an eco-friendly business means that we are constantly learning new ways to lead an eco-friendly lifestyle. We always carry a reusable water bottle, it is amazing how many places will happily refill this for you now. We are also obsessed with our fabulous glass thermos cups, which avoid having to buy take away coffee or tea, and keep it lovely and hot. Where possible we buy local and avoid plastic packaging, being in Devon we have lots of delicious local options! We carry out cliff cleans which are a great way to stop plastic entering the ocean, whilst enjoying wonderful views.
Two top tips from us! 1) If you are getting an ice-cream this summer ask for a cone not a tub to reduce waste. 2) Buy a bar of soap rather than a bottle of shower gel, it lasts longer and you don’t have the waste plastic bottle.
The wonderful thing about having an eco business is that is opens the door to so many other independent brands that are being sustainable that we can purchase eco friendly items from.
We have several wonderful farm shops nearby that not only have delicious local produce but also stock local products and gifts which is great option for us. We often make home-made gifts such as paintings or gorgeous hand-picked bouquets from the garden which are always well received and have minimal impact on the planet!
