Environmental Policy

At Hire a Canoe Ltd we are passionate about the environment and doing our best to reduce our impact. Whilst there are some aspects our our business we cannot change such as the use of minibuses and plastic equipment. We have highlighted a few schemes that starting this season we will be promoting.

  • Free tea or coffee for anyone who brings their own cup (we will no longer provide paper or plastic cups)**
  • Free refills for reuseable water bottles**
  • An annual litter pick to help remove litter from the river.
  • Where possible we buy kayaks made from recycled plastics.

If you can think of any way we can improve our environmental policy then please get in touch!
