  Green Policy
 

At Lagganlia we are committed to providing quality outdoor learning and self catering experiences whilst minimising the environmental impact of our activities. We aim to demonstrate sustainability to our guests by our practices and by including practical work around environmental education and sustainability in all our outdoor learning courses.

We are members of the Green Tourism Business Scheme and are delighted to have achieved the Silver Award. By promoting sustainable practices this scheme helps ensure the continued enjoyment of the beautiful environment around us all for future generations.
At Lagganlia we have been delivering environmental education for over 20 years. We have lots of major environmental projects that we would like to undertake when we can and there is much we can all do in terms of minor projects and raising awareness and we intend to work on this over the next few years.

Currently we comply with all relevant environmental legislation. We have listed below how we strive to reduce waste, pollution, carbon impact and environmental impact.
  • 75% of our electricity comes from a green source.
  • We use low-energy light bulbs as replacements when any of our bulbs fail.
  • We recycle all our cardboard, paper, cans, plastic bottles and glass and request that all visiting groups sort their refuse and recycle all these items using the bins provided.
  • We only change bedding once a week.
  • We strive to make efficient use of paper using e-resources whenever possible including for marketing materials.
  • We have reduced the portion sizes served to visiting the school groups to reduce food waste - extra portions are only available on request.
  • We endeavour to organise our programmes to minimalise the use of our minibuses.
  • All unclaimed clothing etc is recycled through our textile bin which raises fund for our charity - the Friends of Lagganlia.
  • We do not use pesticide or other chemicals harmful to local wildlife on our site.
  • We encourage wildlife within the grounds.
  • We have planted over 200 native species trees and plan to plant more.
  • We provide RSPB approved feeding stations and nest sites throughout our site.
  • We encourage sustainable tourism by provision for walkers and cyclists.
  • We have a Green Team who work to achieve the Centre‚Äôs Green Action Plan.
You can help us by:
  • Sorting refuse into recyling items and landfill and placing in the correct containers in your lodge.
  • Keeping the environment litter free and following the Countryside Code.
  • Keep our septic tank happy by bringing eco-friendly washing/dishwashing liquids etc with you.
  • Switching off lights and heating or turning down heating whenever you can.
  • Using yourcars as little as possible - walk and cycle instead.
  • Supporting local producers, eating places and visiting local tourist attractions and events.
