1. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
You can help by switching off lights when you’re leaving your room and switching off your heater
if not required, by using our recycling system in your bed/bathroom and by putting used teabags on the little dish on your hospitality tray.
Try and say no to bags and packaging you don’t need when you’re out and about.
2. Eat local, Buy local, See local
Help our communities to prosper by buying genuine, ‘made on Mull/Iona’ souvenirs to take home,
and by sampling local produce in shops, cafes and restaurants. We have some fantastic artists, craftspeople and food producers on Mull and Iona.
Please ask us for further information, we have lots of suggestions at our fingertips!
3. Be Water Wise
Please use water wisely. For example, you can turn off the tap when brushing your teeth, and adhere to our towel
policy to avoid additional laundry.
4. Give the Car a Rest
Browse through our walking folder in the guest lounge – it contains details of local walks to some
beautiful beaches and special places which a car can’t reach! Or relax and
let someone else do the hard work by taking a boat trip or the public bus service to Craignure and Tobermory.
5. Leave No Trace
Respect our wild landscapes by avoiding disturbance to wildlife, guarding against fire and taking home all your rubbish, even orange peel!
6. Support Green Tourism Businesses
There are hundreds of businesses trying to reduce their environmental impact through the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
Businesses are awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold for their efforts to be more environmentally responsible.
