Nix in Nature, believes in the ‘balance of nature’! Therefore as a recreational ranger I will follow the laws of the forest faeries and always actively seek to improve this policy as we and the planet evolve to finally pay more respect to the lovely Mother Earth.
I will re-use, recycle and use chemical free/biodegradable products whenever possible, both on a personal and professional level and I aim to promote the importance of such respect to Mother Earth and how easy and liberating it is during activities and on any marketing.
Products used will be recycled where possible such as paper for printing and craft materials, also chemical free and cruelty free products are used for cleaning and hygiene.
Waste is recycled where facilities exist; currently these include; food composting, paper, card, plastic, cans, glass, batteries and printer cartridges. Litter is also collected during events to set an example and to maintain good woodland/environmental karma.
Local and fair trade goods are fully supported and used by Nix in Nature and personally whenever possible.
Energy Saving. Nix in Nature left the rat race in 2006 to actively look to live a much greener, simpler lifestyle. I have lived in a either a campervan, transit van, caravan or tent during my time in Scotland, drastically reducing energy use. Having returned closer to home in 2014, I now have the challenge of bringing all that I have learnt whilst continuing to grow and improve where possible.
Conservation is promoted on walks and events and I always aim to enthuse respect of the natural world. I also play an active part in the Woodland Trust's phenology website, Nature’s Calendar and their Ancient Tree Hunt.
