Welcome to St. Ives! Wherever we go and whatever we do, we have some impact on the environment and community. By making positive choices during your visit, you can help to look after Cornwall and this special area ensuring that it retains everything that is special about it for your next visit. You can have an impact right here at Sea Breeze!
1. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
In Cornwall we take our recycling very seriously, as we hope you do at home! Say no to packaging where possible, especially plastic bags. You will find recycling banks in most main car parks across the area. In Cornwall we work hard to recycle all we can. Please help us by using the Coast Bags in your room to place glass, plastic, paper, news paper etc. We will re-cycle them for you.
2. Reduce traffic: walk, cycle or use public transport
Walking and cycling are great ways to see the area without adding to traffic. Use public transport if you need to travel to your start point, but try exploring near to where you are staying - there are some fantastic places to see right on your doorstep!.There are more and more fully accessible routes becoming available, ensuing access for all. Please ask and we will provide you with details of bus and train timetables.
3. Stay Local, Eat Local, Buy Local, See Local
Support local producers and services - this way your visit has a real benefit to the communities of Cornwall. And you get to see and taste the real quality that Cornwall offers. Visit Farmers Markets, farm shops, village stores, pubs and cafes. Much of our distinctive culture is evident in the hundreds of community events that happen throughout the year and are well worth supporting – and the food and drink is simply fantastic. Please feel free to use the Jute Coast bags in the porch when you are shopping, then return it when you are finished for others to use.
4. Chill out – switch off….
Enjoy a fabulous, light touch holiday…..switch off lights and dripping taps; use the voluntary laundry card scheme where you see it, so that only towels that need washing are laundered; every single effort helps protect and enhance our beautiful environment. It takes a moment and it’s all worth it!
5. Follow the Countryside Code: respect – protect – enjoy.
The Countryside Code reminds visitors to protect plants and animals; take litter away; leave gates and property as you find them; keep dogs under close control; consider other people and users when visiting the countryside. Enjoy your holiday! Thank you!
