Our First Business Consultation: Sustainability

Dear Friends,

We are delighted to have just completed a consultation with Jo Hendrickx of ‘Travel Without Plastic’ regarding our sourcing and plans for sustainability. Jo travels the world helping hotels and businesses to reduce waste and move towards a zero-plastic model.

Jo has recommended that we apply for membership and eventually accreditation with Travelife – a GSTC recognised company that promotes worldwide sustainable tourism, with robust standards. She was fabulously encouraging with her feedback on everything we have sourced so far, and with everything as it stands, thinks we should be able to achieve a Gold Award once we are up and running with relevant policies in place, and have hosted an inspector. We have already emailed them for a Skype consultation to start the ball rolling and signed up for membership!

We are thrilled by the prospect of partnering with Jo in the coming years with the new potential avenue of hosting sustainability workshops for businesses, both locally and internationally, which is extremely exciting!

A huge shout out to Kate Last (one of our blog followers) for putting us in touch with Jo and recommending this route! Thank you!

With gratitude and love,
