Going green at Trevornick Holiday Park
Trevornick Holiday Park has introduced a number of initiatives to encourage guests to help them become even more environmentally friendly.
The campsite and caravan park, in Cornwall’s Holywell Bay, was the first in Newquay to install Oltco walkways made from a combination of plastic drink bottles, food packaging and straws. In fact, the area surrounding its outdoor pool used the equivalent of almost 100,000 straws.
This year, Trevornick has introduced a ‘Drop & Swap’ station where guests can leave beach toys and bodyboards, and joined the ‘Re-Fill’ app, which highlights locations nearby where people can fill up their water bottles.
Staff also organise their own beach cleans on Holywell Bay, while in the park’s three on-site bars, plastic straws have been replaced with paper straws - an initiative called the Final Straw campaign.
