Caring for our Environment

At Cobden Garden Homestay we endeavour always to minimise our environmental impact. We try hard at all times to adhere to the following policies:

  • We recycle all metal cans, glass, plastic, cardboard and paper.
  • We use re-useable cloth bags when grocery shopping.
  • All our organic waste in composted.
  • We use a hand powered mower on the lawns and do not remove the clippings, minimising the need for fertiliser.
  • Our garden is fertilised with organic product only.
  • We use “eco-friendly” plant based, non-phosphate detergents in the kitchen and laundry.
  • There are re-fillable dispensers for bathroom hand wash and shampoos in the guest rooms.
  • Laundry is air dried to minimise the use of the clothes drier.
  • We have installed low wattage fluorescent bulbs wherever possible.
  • We buy and serve locally produced fruit and vegetables wherever possible.
  • Free range eggs are served for breakfast.
  • Instant water heating for guests negates the need for a hot water cylinder.
  • Guest beds are made up with cotton sheets and blankets and feather duvets.
  • We are progressively installing insulation into our Victorian wooden home.
  • Woollen carpets are used throughout the house.
  • We use eco-friendly (non-solvent based) paints for decorating and maintenance.
  • We are progressively planting areas of our section in native plants.
