REDUCE, RE-USE, RECYCLE - WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Here at Millbrook Estate we try to be as environmentally responsible as possible. There is so much more you can do to help with environment whilst you are on holiday!
Switch off lights if you’re not in a room. Close windows if the heating or gas fire is on or turn down the thermostats on the radiators.
Use the dual flush system on the toilets. Don't leave taps running while you brush your teeth or wash your hands. Wash veggies & fruit in a bowl instead of under a running tap. When boiling water use the minimum amount required.
SAY NO TO WASTE
Minimise the waste we send to landfill by making as much use as possible of our recycling & composting facilities, or feed left overs to our very obliging chickens.
Support our independent businesses and buy local products & produce. Our village community shop is a great place to start! (See our Local information page
for our fab local businesses).
The public transport options are limited in rural Devon, but planning ahead can minimise mileage. Have a look at our Come by Train
page and discounts we offer. A great day out is a trip on the Tarka Line from Umberleigh to Exeter, Topsham or Exmouth.
DO ONE THING DIFFERENTLY
When you get home, consider if there is just one thing you could do differently. Perhaps you could swap some cleaning products or shampoos to greener chemical free versions (We highly recommend Ethical Superstore
to stock up), switch to toilet paper with more recycled content, maybe join a local clean up initiative, or walk to the shop once a week instead of taking the car!
