Sustainability

Dunluce Bed & Breakfast

Environmental commitment

 We at Dunluce operate in a unique environment on the edge of a pristine World Heritage National Park, home to numerous endangered native species.

We are committed therefore to act in an environmentally responsible way in our home , our community and our beautiful country Aotearoa New Zealand.

Here are some of the steps we have taken to minimise our impact on the environment:

  • We aim to keep our landfill waste to a minimum, and to this end we take  papers, plastic, glass, cardboard, tin and aluminium to the local recycling depot.
  • We compost all garden waste in 4 outdoor bins, and we use the Bokashi system to compost all our household organic waste. All composted material is returned to our garden.
  • We have planted many fruit trees and bushes and have a productive herb and vegetable garden.
  • We use local produce whenever possible and buy local organic free range eggs.
  • We use biodegradable plastic bin liners which breakdown in 18 months. 
  • Our toiletries are made from organically grown lavender and we use refillable pump containers to reduce plastic waste. 
  • We have energy efficient heating, appliances, hot water heating and lighting, and our home is well insulated and built to trap the sun's warmth.
  • We use eco cleaning and laundry products. 
  • We welcome feedback and suggestions from our visitors.
  •  We support  the local conservation effort at Pomona Island.
