Green Tourism & the environment

DSCF7094

greentourismBirdworld is proud to be a member of the Green Tourism Business Scheme. In all areas of our company, we do everything practical to operate as a sustainable business. As such, our aim is that all of the activities we carry out should cause the minimum negative impact to the environment where possible.

Some of the activities we carry out are as follows: –

Recycling
– All of our waste material and bi-products are split down and recycled whenever possible. This includes paper, cardboard, polystyrene, plastics, aluminium cans, ink cartridges, cooking oil and many more items. To help with this, we have invested in machinery to compact and bale bulk materials so that they are suitable for collection by recycling companies.

Composting – We set aside areas to compost suitable waste from across the company and where appropriate re-use this in our flowerbeds and other similar areas.

Non-recyclable waste
– any items that cannot be recycled inevitably have to be sent for landfill. To minimise the amount produced, we have again invested in compaction technology, which in turn reduces the need for skip collection and therefore unnecessary transportation.

Positive conservation efforts
– The Company collects rainwater from some of our buildings and ground water where possible for use within the business. We also support conservation actions through funding and education initiatives as part of our core activities at Birdworld.
