We're doing our bit to be as sustainable as we can in our hostel.
From using eco focused cleaning products, over recycling to ironing less, we minimise our impact.
We favour biodegradable & sturdy long lasting materials (wood, cotton, bamboo) over brittle plastics or polyester fibres in all areas of our day-to-day business.
Our cleaning products are vegan, UK produced, and contain only biodegradable ingredients. This significantly reduces the output of harmful biotoxins or contaminants into our surrounding environment.
We buy our cleaning products in recycled bulk containers and refill them into reusable high quality industrial spray bottles to reduce waste in form of single-use products.
To reduce our energy consumption we have decided against ironing all of our bedlinen and are following scientific advice of washing hygienically, where possible, at low temperatures.
In our self-catering accommodation kitchen, we provide baking paper and aluminium foil made from 100% recycled materials.
We love to build new features & furnitures from recycled materials.
We encourage trash separation - the Highland Council has a very good recycling system.
You can help us by...
Washing out any trays and materials you put into our recycling bins.
Recycle right & follow the recycling guideline posters in our communal kitchen .
We love hearing your thoughts, get in touch below with your sustainability ideas.
NEW FROM OLD
We source a lot of our furniture from regional second hand locations and renovate them to give them new life.
For our day-to-day cleaning we mainly use hygienically washable cloths and mop heads. They can be reused for a long period of time and are mostly biodegradable.
Our bedding is all made from a mix of natural fibres, such as bamboo & recycled microfibres. The duvets are covered in chemical-treatment-free fabric and 100% recyclable at the end of their lifespan.
Our electricity supplier produces 100% renewable energy from sources such as wind farms.
