Beds4Nature makes it easy to calculate your holiday property’s carbon footprint, then reduce it by increasing wildlife and native woodland in your area. All whilst supporting the local community. It’s a brand new initiative that we’re hoping you’ll want to get involved in. So we wanted to share how it all began.
Sustainability has become an important part of the decision making process when guests are looking for somewhere to stay. Booking.com even includes a Sustainable initiatives section in their listings now. Love them or loathe them, the big travel platforms are always quick to react to changing demands. So it absolutely makes sense to get on board. Apart from the obvious reasons (we’re all keen to do what we can to contribute to a greener future), today’s guests care more than ever about choosing sustainable holidays. When we work with owners to deliver their websites for example, we always encourage them to include a section about their eco ethics. The same goes for your marketing messages too. But aside from recycling, using energy efficient lighting and even installing an Electric Vehicle Charging point, we thought there must be a way to do more. Is there a way to make that easy? And how do we know what the carbon footprint of our holiday let is anyway? That’s what we set out to answer. And that’s where Beds4Nature began.
