OUR ECO FRIENDLY POLICY
Here at Resipole Farm Holiday park we are incredibly lucky to be surrounded by natural beauty and an abundance of wildlife. We are so proud to be able to share this amazing location with all our guests and we want to keep sharing these stunning surroundings for generations to come. That is why we are committed to helping nature. By ensuring our business practices are as green as possible, we can minimise the impact we have on the environment and help sustain that natural beauty for the future.
How do we commit to helping nature?
By making little changes and turning them into everyday habits we hope to create an eco-friendly practice and encourage our guests to do the same.
Water; Our water comes directly from the burn on site and we treat it using ultra violet lights and filters, eliminating the need for chlorine treatment. To keep waste water to a minimum the taps and showers in the toilet block are all push buttons to control the flow of water.
Energy Saving; Where possible we use LED lights, these are low impact and great energy savers. We also have the lights in the toilet block on a sensor system, to stop lights being left on unnecessarily.
Waste; Recycling bins are situated on site for: cardboard, plastics, cartons, tins and glass. Our guests order their newspapers, this stops any unwanted paper waste. The onsite shop stocks P.E.T recyclable plastics where possible.
Cleaning; We only use eco-friendly cleaning products and where possible we limit the use of products all together. By using Enjo cleaning -products, which trap dirt and bacteria in a special microfibre cloth, we can clean product free meaning there is less chemical run off into the environment.
Local Produce; By stocking local produce we are supporting the local community and reducing our carbon footprint. Our shop stocks a variety of meat produced here on the farm, as well as eggs, bread and fresh produces from local businesses.
Nature and Wildlife; By providing dedicated spaces for nature we have created habitats that are home to a variety of different wildlife; pine martens, deer, bats, a huge variety of birds and insects. The site is also home to numerous lichens and mosses. By putting up nest boxes and leaving deadwood piles we are encouraging nature to make it’s home here. We’ve also planted thousands of trees to help restore and regenerate the landscape.
