A day at the Zoo
Invited to a trade day for hoteliers yesterday at Paignton Zoo. Great opportunity to have an tour so we can pass on information to our guests when visiting. Paington Zoo is a fantastic day out for all the family and has certainly grown from its hubble opening in 1923. Today it is home to thousands of animals living across 80 acres and is dedicated to education and conservation of our wildlife. Anyone visiting our guest house can pick up discount vouchers for this attraction and also Living Coasts6 ,a small coastal zoo in Torquay housing seals, penguins and other various sea birds.

There has been an increasing awareness of the amount of plastics in our oceans and on our beaches and this awareness has recently been highlighted by the great Sir David Attenborough.
The shocking images of the 5 mile radius of floating plastic litter in the Caribbean Sea both saddened and maddened me whilst making me feel guilty about what mankind is doing to our lovely planet.
As I live near the sea and have a crazy Labrador cross Springer Spaniel I am often found on the beach - not starring out to sea but head bent either picking up litter or picking up beautiful sea glass. The sea glass I keep and recycle into art; the rubbish goes straight into the nearest council bin or recycling container.
Manufacturers are slowly adjusting their practices which means reducing their use of plastic packaging which is good news but it did make me think hotels/guest houses/b&b's should also get their act together to be more environmentally friendly.
