Green Traveller

We are try­ing to make a dif­fer­ence to our planet at The Backpack.

You can rest assured that by choos­ing to stay with us, you are mak­ing a dif­fer­ence as well.

The Backpack Worm Farm

Our clean­ing prod­ucts are bio-​degradable
The food waste from the kitchen is used to feed our worm farms
The com­post and worm tea from the worm farm is used in our gar­den and excess is sold and donated to our com­mu­nity project
Through­out the build­ing you will find colour-​coded recy­cling bins, we have a sep­a­rate com­pany that col­lects our recy­clable materials
The gar­den at the entrance is waterwise
We sup­port local peo­ple by sell­ing their arts and crafts in our com­mu­nity shop
We make use of solar hot water geysers and heat pumps; and water-wise shower heads
Where possible we use LED light bulbs

Our recy­cling com­pany, Recycle1St, mon­i­tors our monthly recy­cling and sends us a break­down of what we have recycled.
