Join the Fight for a Sustainable Future
Here at Base Surf Lodge we are taking action to be more eco-friendly. Our aim is to find practical, affordable and sustainable ways to reduce our carbon footprint in both the business and our personal lives. We will be sharing with you our successes and any challenges we face.
Earth-Conscious at a Low Cost
In the lodge, we already have a few things in place which are sustainable actions towards becoming eco-friendly. All of which are affordable and can easily be implemented in homes and businesses alike.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle √
By simply reducing plastic usage, swapping disposable for reusable and recycling all that cannot be reused, together we can have a huge positive impact on our environment.
Turning old bunk bed slats into raised beds is just one example of how we try to repurpose things here at Base. By giving things a new purpose we reduce our costs and our waste.
Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products √
We use Ecover who are a leading brand in eco-friendly, plant-based cleaning products. From their business model to the ingredients they use, Ecover are on a mission to save the planet, while giving us the chance to be truely CLEAN.
Hanging Out √
The many benefits of hang drying instead of tumble drying include longer lasting and fresher smelling clothes. But more importantly, saving pennies and the planet!
Energy Efficient Windows √
We have double glazed windows which are more energy-efficient due to their better insulation. This reduces our heating bill but more importantly our carbon emissions. A cheaper alternative is using insulated blinds, which also work well for temperature control.
Bamboo is Best √
We have swapped to bamboo toothbrushes, as an easy way to reduce our plastic waste. We have also got into wearing bamboo socks as they are incredibly soft, naturally anti-odour and eco-friendly. Our personal favourites are Sexy Socks as their designs are all so jazzy!
At Base Surf Lodge we strive for continuous improvement, therefore this is just the beginning!
