The Green Tourism Business Scheme

Southcliff Apartments are based in Cullercoats Conservation Area, and we are actively committed to doing our bit for the environment. We're not perfect yet but with your help we hope we can help make a positive difference!

We want to do as much as we can to preserve the natural beauty we see around us as well as our natural resources. We will keep an eye on how we are doing, and we hope you will let us know if you think we could doing more. We will also encourage our suppliers to join the Green cause.

Here are some of the things we are working on:

We haven't yet been able to implement everything we would like to yet, but we're working on it. We have a policy of green replacement, so over time sheets and towels will be ethically sourced organic cotton, but we do not feel it is right to throw away the sheets we currently have. Equally, if a guest leaves a bottle of washing up liquid we use it, rather than throw it away, but replace it with Eco-kind variety.

Sometimes difficult decisions have to be made, for example we use 100% cotton sheets as they are natural product, even though they have higher carbon footprint. Sometimes it is necessary to just make a judgement call. Please let us know if there is anything you feel we could do better or any advice you can offer.

Thank you for your support!
