TESTIMONIALS

Our mission is to engage businesses and individuals to reduce consumption of single-use plastics and help protect our planet. We believe small actions from committed individuals will generate positive impact that we can communicate to key decision makers to bring about change.

Final Straw Cornwall Revisits Bedruthan Hotel & Spa and The Scarlet Hotel, Mawgan Porth

Final Straw Cornwall were delighted to have Bedruthan Hotel & Spa and The Scarlet Hotel in Mawgan Porth join us at the very start of our campaign back in December 2017, to rid Cornwall of single use plastic straws. A year on, we meet up with Tania Clark the Sustainability Specialist for the hotels to find out what the impact of going plastic straw free has been.

“Knowledge is the key to many solutions – once people realise the problem and the bulb in their brain lights up, they can be inspired to take action, feel good about themselves and tell others.” Pat Smith

Bosinver Farm Cottages Supports Final Straw Cornwall From The Very Beginning

Laid out much like a small hamlet, Bosinver truly is a magical place. Set in a tranquil valley not far from the south coast, their 20 holiday cottages sit in 35 acres of wildflower meadows and beautifully landscaped gardens. Winners of the 2017 Longstanding Commitment to Sustainability award.

“We’ve always understood the fragile balance of the environment and the demands we all make on it. Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at Bosinver; it drives everything from the way we manage our land to how we run our business. Our aim is to give all our guests a magical, memorable holiday, while minimising the impact we have on the environment.” Farmer Dave
