Our island environment

Sustainability at Ivy Cottage

Food waste, recycling, composting and reducing our use of plastic is important to us on Rum.

At Ivy Cottage we try hard to help keep our environmental impact as low as possible. We use local food suppliers and grow as much of our own as possible in our garden and polytunnel. We are active composters and with the help of our labrador and chickens have pretty much eliminated all food waste!

We try to limit how much plastic we get by using suppliers who favour recycled paper bags instead. We use refillable containers for guest toiletries and recycle as much as possible. 

Covid -19 guidance has hindered this a bit and we may have to use some single use sachets of tea, coffee, sugar etc but we are trying to come up a better solution
