Use metal water bottles - we ask that NO single use plastic bottles are bought on tours. Eliminate use of single-use plastic straws, crockery or bags.
Responsible waste disposal, recycling and composting where possible.
Compost all food matter. We use a commercial compost company. All non-biodegradable items to be recycled. Single use battery free operation. Recycling all waste oil, coolant and tyres.
Use chemical-free products only for cleaning.
All rubbish to be kept on bus in bags provided. If we see litter, we will pick it up (within reason).
