Our Responsibilities

We all have a duty and responsibilities to preserve the environment, for our future, our children and the stability of planet earth. Hopefully, you’re already playing your part, and here at Chabanettes you can have the peace of mind that we are doing everything we can to ensure our carbon footprint is as low as it can be, and our environmental impact is minimal.

Indeed, it is our aim to ensure that Chabanettes actually enhances the world we live in. Tim was a pioneering Hotelier for Green Tourism in the UK and understands the need that businesses and the environment need to work together in harmony. Therefore our commitments include:-

  • Recycling everything we possibly can
  • A commitment to reducing the amount of packaging we buy
  • Buying locally where possible to reduce the need for transportation
  • LED and low-energy light-bulbs across the whole building
  • Burning only sustainably sourced and storm-damaged firewood
  • Buying electricity only from companies who promote renewable energies
  • Using fair-trade suppliers where possible for e.g. coffee, tea, chocolate
  • Continual planting of trees and flowers in our own private area of forest
  • The constant management of our Fosse Septic tank to ensure no harmful waste is put into the environment.
  • Water restrictors on all showerheads and taps to reduce water and electric usage
  • Constantly research new ways that we can reduce our carbon footprint

Auzzy

Meet “Auzzy” from Auzelles, the cute, cuddly sheep who can be found sitting on the bed in all our guest rooms. He’s more than just someone to snuggle up in bed with though. He’s fast becoming a bit of a hero in the Auvergne, and he wants to raise valuable funds for poorly and disabled children in our region. He supports Association Les Enfants des Cheminots which aims to cure and rehabilitate infants and children and help their physical and psychological development. If you want to take Auzzy home with you, we ask for 20 Euros and we can guarantee that 100% of the proceeds of the sale will go directly to this worthwhile children’s charity.
