by | Aug 16, 2021 | Ethical Accreditation, Ethical Shopping Blog

The Good Shopping Guide is pleased to announce that The Swan Inn has attained our Ethical Company Award, following a review of the company’s ethical standards and business practices. The Swan Inn is a historic country pub, nestled in the picturesque Herefordshire countryside, offering food, rooms and camping options making it an ideal choice for those seeking a sustainable staycation.

The Swan Inn aims to operate as an ethical company and has incorporated various ethical and sustainable practices as a result. This includes the business being conscious of its environmental impact by using only low energy appliances and light fittings and being supplied by 100% renewable electricity. In addition, The Swan Inn recycles over 90% of its waste. This includes recycling glass into sandbags and food waste made into fuel, as but a few examples. Furthermore, The Swan Inn uses only local suppliers to reduce freight miles, and have made a conscious effort to establish wildflowers and leave untidy nooks and crannies for wildlife to flourish.

The Swan Inn does not stop at its sustainability efforts. It goes further by considering Animal Welfare, ensuring its menu includes vegan and vegetarian options. Moreover, the business is also a dog-friendly one, with four-legged friends being welcome both on-site and free to explore the local countryside.

Overall, we are pleased to see The Swan Inn serve as a great example to the hospitality industry as to how any kind of business can make ethical decisions throughout. This includes both how the company conducts business and even extends to how it can be beneficial to the local surrounding area.
