Convinced of the importance of making a radical change for the better for our planet and the human race, my wife and I have decided to make our campsite a place where everyone's ecological convictions can be lived. We pride ourselves on sharing human and natural values with our guests, and we want to provide them with the best possible holiday experience.
With this in mind, we adopt a continuous improvement approach to our environmental impact, which the Green Key label allows us to monitor through an annual audit. Here are some of the ecological projects for which the Green Key label supports us.
Thanks to major investments, we are proud of our progress in terms of electricity production: our equipment allows us to produce about 42% of the energy we consume, with a minimal carbon footprint.
Indeed, we are equipped with 105 solar panels and a 10 kWa wind turbine, unique in France for a campsite!
In 2021 we have adopted a new operating mode for the campers' showers: a wristband system allows us to rationalise water consumption while maintaining the comfort of our guests.
We encourage selective sorting by providing our guests with bags and sorting instructions, by proposing to collect organic waste in our compost and for our chickens, which love to eat our campers' meals!
Activities and entertainment
We offer our guests activities rooted in our rich Bigouden territory: local products, vegan food-truck and discovery of wild plants to promote responsible locavorism.
To protect the local fauna, we build insect and hedgehog huts in the children's club, and we observe bird feeders and nesting boxes in partnership with the LPO (Ligue de Protection des Oiseaux).
Finally, we are developing an educational component for young and old alike around zero waste with workshops (household products, cosmetics...), and permaculture with our responsible vegetable gardens.
It is for these reasons and many others that we were led to ask for the support of the Green Key, a label that helps us to bring visibility to our environmental approach and encourages us to improve each year, to offer a unique experience of green tourism to our customers.
