Being Green

Staffa House Supply Chain

We want to support the natural world, the community and region in which we have chosen to live.  To begin with we aim to use locally sourced produce; much of which will be organic.  If that’s not possible we will find and use a supplier with a strong ethical approach.

Our food supplies mainly come from Mull and Oban – using small family run businesses who have often won awards for their produce.  We use fairly-traded tea, coffee and sugar products as although tea is being grown in Scotland now, coffee won’t ever be a success here!

Your hot water is partly supplied by the solar panels which sit on the roof to the rear of the house.  We have a shieling tent (the white thing at the back of the house) as well as old fashioned drying lines.  But we are realistic about our weather and we do have and use a tumble dryer.  We use eco-friendly products to clean rooms, do the laundry and for the washing up.

White goods, bed linen, towels and beds are sourced from ethically-minded companies such as John Lewis.  However, we are realistic about the fact that we are on the Isle of Mull and at the far end of it too, so we will occasionally use Amazon when we can’t find another way.
