Environmental consciousness on your campsite in Burgundy

Of course we also worry about our planet at Castel Camping Château de l’Epervière. By putting into place a certain number of measures, we want to contribute in taking into account our planet a little better. Our efforts resulted in obtaining the Green Key label in 2015. Here’s what we do on our end in Burgundy to minimize our impact on the environment.

Recycling and reducing waste

We sort plastic, glass, cardboard/newspapers/magazines, aluminium (drink and food cans) and house waste on our campsite. You will find our central waste disposal point in the corner of our car park at the entrance of the campsite.
We kindly ask our customers to try and reduce their dialy waste as much as possible (by for instance flattening the cardboard boxes before putting them in the container) and to sort the waste as much as possible.

Reducing our consumption of electric power

Everywhere it’s possible on site, we aim to replace all traditional lightbulbs by either economic ones and of course mainly LED lights (all our rental accommodation is already equipped with LED lights). This will reduce the use of electric power and make the lights last longer.
We kindly ask our guests to turn off the lights after using the bath room / sanitary facilities when possible. In our newly renovated toilet block, we have installed movement detectors in many cabins to reduce consumption of electric power.

Reducing our water consumption

Many of our showers and watertaps inside our sanitary blocks are equipped with water reducers. Thus we all use less water, reducing the waterconsumption up to 30 – 40 %, while still enjoying the same comfort in the showers or while washing your hands !
We kindly ask our guests to use water responsibly and to make sure little children do not go to the sanitary facilites on their own.

Use of environmental friendly products

For the cleaning and maintenance of all facilities on our campsite, we exclusively use products that have obtained the label “Ecolabel” or “Ecocert”
