THE ENVIRONMENT

From the Owners:

“Margaret River Retreat aims to achieve a high level of sustainable retreat initiatives. Our mission is to provide a low impact and integrated creative space for holiday makers, adventure seekers, comfort campers and extraordinary events.

From its conception, we have planted extensive native vegetation and maintained wildlife corridors with limited fencing from our National Park boundary. Kangaroos and emus are free to roam past your door and graze our paddocks. The threatened Fire-tail cockatoos have a home in the giant Marri trees and every five years or so they travel in great numbers from the Wheatbelt area to roost. We are fortunate to also support the Western ringtail possum who nest in the Peppermint trees and the White bellied frog who resides in the neighbouring creek lines.

During the Retreats’ recent upgrades, we have been careful to recycle timbers and repurpose them for use in furniture and interiors. Much of the construction and landscaping materials, such as, gravel and timber, have been sourced from the farm.

Margaret River Retreat aims to adhere to Councils strict rubbish sorting and recycling programs. In addition, we provide composting and worm farming facilities.

Forest Grove is reported to have one of the highest rainfalls in Western Australia and we aim to be self-sufficient in our supply of UV treated, filtered potable water. In addition, we aim to refit our shower and laundry facilities with Solar hot water and Grey water systems, to be reused on our nearby screen plantings and orchard areas. (2020 goals!)

Margaret River Retreat aims to reduce our carbon footprint by delivering a closed laundry system. Our linen has been chosen specifically to support our commitment to eco accommodation initiatives. By laundering much of our linen on-site we are not participating in the high travel miles and chemical use that is widely accepted by the industry. Our fine 100% French Flax and Organic Cotton linens have been carefully sourced from sustainable production houses and accredited farms. We clean our linen using pure natural products, soft rainwater and sunlight. They will often look crinkled and, we believe, this adds to an authentic glamping experience.

In addition, we have sourced Bamboo topped, Western Australian mattresses and hyper allergenic pillows made from recycled PET bottles. Who Gives a Crap toilet and tissue paper is used throughout our retreat and all of our cleaning products are 100% natural. We also recently moved to a locally handcrafted amenity manufacturer, who allows us to buy in bulk and repackage under our own label in 500ml recycled plastic pump bottles, elliminating the need for one use plastic amenities in all of our bathrooms and kitchens.

All suppliers have been sourced locally for kitchen supplies, furniture, services and building contractors. We also have a locals first policy within our employment advertising procedures and policies framework.

Drawing on our experience in Permaculture practices, we aim to supply our Café with seasonal fresh fruit, vegetables, flowers, herbs and eggs. We currently harvest small amounts of Macadamia nuts, Almonds, Plums, Citrus and Apricots from mature trees that have inspired us with their resilience.

Where possible, our interiors and homewares have been collected from Australian cottage industry artisans who share our commitment to cultivating an environmental and culturally sustainable community. Through these collaborations, together we aim to forge a World Class glamping destination.

Your Margaret River Region acknowledges the Wadandi people of the region as the traditional custodians of this land, and we pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

We aim to assist others both directly and indirectly from our commercial tourism platform. This journey has motivated us and propelled us to living a more authentically sustainable and connected lifestyle.

We choose to support www.SOAP_AID.org.au to generate awareness of health and hygiene. Our Hotel to Hands partnership encourages guests to deposit their amenity soap waste within our collection bins. These are sent on for recycling and reconstituting into bars of lifesaving soap.

We welcome all opportunities to deliver a higher standard of sustainable retreat initiatives. Please share with us your ideas via email and we will endeavour to implement them in the future.”
