Small Businesses and the Environment

Our Journey

Great article on the BBC website about what  the Honey Pot Cafe in Penzance is doing to do its bit for the environment.  We want to do our bit too, it will be difficult at first, but as we grow with the business we hope it all becomes second nature.  This is what we hope to do.

We also been looking at things like supplying Nespresso style coffee machines in each cottage for some added luxury.  As they use aluminium pods and are difficult to recycle, we have been looking closely at compostable pods as an eco-friendly alternative, they are more expensive, but are a lot better for the environment.  A thing we will definitely do, is put some of the grounds to meadow, taking inspiration from the Blue Campaign,  along with putting up bird boxes, lots of bird boxes.  We’re also thinking of getting some bee hives to help produce some yummy honey, but, lets get our feet under the table and get the basics right first 🙂

What small changes do you think we could be making to help us do our bit for the environment, please post your answers below? 🙂
