How to be a ‘Green Visitor’…

 

At Brooks Guesthouse we are committed to operating in an environmentally friendly way. Here are some suggestions on how to be a greener visitor:

 

Give the car a rest and travel by train or bus.  

 

Bikes - If you travel to Bristol by bike, or are bringing your bikes with you, we have secure bike storage available to guests.

 

Re-use towels – towels are changed on the 3rd night of your stay to avoid wasting energy through unnecessary laundry.

 

Conserve energy – switch lights off when not needed and keep windows closed when heating is on. All rooms have thermostatic controls on heaters so heating temperature can be adjusted as required.

 

Be water wise – use water wisely, such as by turning the tap off when brushing your teeth.

 

Reduce, re-use, recycle – leave recyclable goods in your room and we shall recycle them.

 

Support Green Tourism Businesses – There are hundred’s of businesses trying to reduce their environmental impacts through the Green Tourism Business Scheme, see www.green-business.co.uk for more information.
