A list of easy to apply eco-habits
Here are a few simple recommendations to help you bear in mind, even during a weekend or a week’s holiday, the importance of safeguarding the environment. During the course of your stay here with us you will come across many areas considered to be fragile and delicate, such as the salt marshes of Guérande or the Regional Natural Park of La Brière. These areas are blessed with an amazing biodiversity. Together let us strive to preserve them for future generations for many years to come!
A few ‘easy-to-remember’ examples…for the young and the ‘not so’ young!
- On the beach :
- When I go on an excursion or a picnic, I don’t leave my litter or cigarette butts lying around. I carry them with me until such time as I find a wastebin to put them in.
- In the countryside :
- When I go walking, I stay within the designated circuits and avoid in this way the trampling and subsequent erosion of protected fragile areas.
- I treat with respect the private property I cross as well as the work carried out by the farmers and the salt workers (les paludiers).
