Environmental Policy

Our Environmental Policy

At Clober Farm we are keen to follow good environmental practices. These include:-

Recycle as much waste as possible.

  • Glass, cans, plastic bottles (blue bin), newspaper & cardboard (brown bin) go in the recycling bin for collection.
  • Food waste can be recycled using the caddy at the gable end of CloberFarm. The food waste bins are kept in the drawer unit in the entrance hallway.

Careful purchasing:

  • We use local suppliers such as Borders biscuits and Grahams Dairy for our welcome
  • We are replacing the current stock of hot drinks with Fair Trade tea, coffee & sugar
  • We will use recycled toilet paper.
  • We will be phasing out the existing cleaning products and purchasing Ecover supplies from Gavin’s Mill Fair Trade shop in Milngavie.

Making user our guest information includes environmentally friendly options:

  • Bus timetables
  • Rail timetables
  • Local walks and maps, including Mugdock Country Park.

Reduce utilities usage through:

  • Our towel policy, where guests indicate which towels have been used during their stay and having Rated washing machine.
  • Low energy light bulbs, including an LED down lighting option in the living room.
  • Setting the thermostats which regulate the underfloor heating.
  • Monitoring energy usage at Clober Farm throughout the year.
  • Adjusting the outdoor lighting to the changing seasons.
