Clovelly Soap may help us be greener

My kitchen smells heavenly this morning after unwrapping a sample selection of beautiful Clovelly Soaps. We have been exploring ways to be more eco-friendly and how to go plastic free... it is a "no-brainer" when it spoils our guests at the same time! It is the thoughtful little extras that elevates a holiday rental to a particularly memorable, fabulous break. Do you think Clovelly Soap will impress our guests?

The Clovelly Soap Company is a small family-run business making handcrafted soap, candles and body care products at Clovelly, only a few miles from Southclay Holidays. The recipes are inspired by nature, using spices, clays, flowers and pure therapeutic grade essential oils blended by hand to create unique scents. Their beautiful soaps are completely natural and plastic free, and we are hoping will really be appreciated by our guests next year.


We have also been looking at the choice of cleaning materials we use in our properties in light of the damage some do to the environment and to our health.  Eco-friendly cleaning is one of 2019's biggest green trends. While we've all realised the chemicals in our food and in our skincare, probably aren't doing us any good, chemical packed cleaning products are often forgotten, as we bleach, spritz, spray and disinfect our houses, cars and workplaces. Product testing is currently in progress - watch this space!
