Reducing plastic waste is a popular topic these days and one that is close to our hearts at Fiveway Apartments. Our first step was to support local groups, Living Coasts & Paignton Zoo but we also support The Marine Conservation Society
It’s one thing though to give passive support to these organisations so we have now started to look at what we can do as a company to be more proactive.
We now have a stated goal of reducing the amount of single use plastic we consume. Now we know we aren’t going to be able to do it all overnight but there are changes we can implement swiftly. But it’s not just about making changes to plastics they also have to be cost neutral so that we have to be creative in the way we solve problems!
We are also looking at better sourcing of other consumables like for instance providing Devon Tea, reducing the amount of travel miles.
On our own we can’t change the world but we believe that we have a responsibility to at least do our bit and if we can inspire our guests and suppliers to do the same then that impact will be increased.
If you have any great ideas on how we could implement change then please do share your thoughts with us.
