Environmentally-friendly initiatives: 5 ways we’re changing to help protect our planet
Cornwall is a beautiful part of the world and we’re so lucky to call it home. Wherever possible we like to buy local, conserve energy and reduce our use of plastics – but we’re not stopping there.
Times are changing, and so are we! Taking care of our environment has never been more important, so we’re making some very important green changes to the way we do things at Atlantic Reach.
We’re introducing some new environmentally-friendly initiatives as part of our ongoing commitment to help conserve our local landscape and protect our planet. As Tesco says, every little helps…
From the TVs in our properties to the music systems in our fitness studios, every single electrical thing at Atlantic Reach is powered solely by good, green energy! We’ve been on a zero CO₂ tariff for the last two years but we switched electricity supplier to Opus Energy in August 2021, which now provides our site with electricity from 100% renewable energy sources.
Out with the old
Four out of the five gas boilers that we have on site have been renewed with modern, high efficiency models. Don’t worry – the last remaining boiler is due to be changed before Easter!
This summer, we planted over 1,000 native shrubs and trees around our campsite! Not only will the trees help to absorb CO₂, they also support local wildlife by providing shelter and homes for animals, insects and birds.
What if we told you that we’re going to start running our ride-on lawn mowers on vegetables? It’s true! From March 2022, all our mowers will run on a 100% fossil fuel-free diesel alternative that’s made from certified waste fats and oils. Not only will this be complying with the Stage V EU emissions directive, it’s also expected to reduce CO₂ emissions by 90%!
We already have several Chargemaster Charging Stations on site but we have plans to fit even more in the near future – because electric cars are the future!
