It’s that time of year again folks, the time to make significant changes to aspects of your life you’re not completely happy with for a healthier and happier self. That’s if you stick to them at least. One popular New Year’s resolution for 2017 is to be more eco-friendly in the upcoming year. A great way to kick start this goal is by swapping the yearly Benidorm trip for a stay in our beautiful eco cabins. Here are our top 8 green resolutions for you and your family to try out in 2017:
If you have ever been on a luxury glamping holiday, you may well have used renewable energy, such as a solar-powered shower.

Anesco has begun to work in conjunction with wildlife charity RSPB to help increase the volumes of wildlife at solar farms across England and Wales.
We’re all aware of the progressions that have been made in the world of tidal energy, and there is a significant amount of awareness that the ocean offers us an ideal source of renewable energy, in superfluous amounts no less. However, the true potential is yet to be harnessed.

While many of us enjoy a cold beer on a warm summer’s evening in the garden, at a barbeque and of course while staying in glamping UK accommodation, have you ever considered that drinking more beer could indeed help to protect this ball of stuff we call home?
