Our Environment & Ethical Buying
At Under the Ash Tree, we are aware that all of our actions have an impact on our environment and we aim to have a positive impact with our buying decisions.
We clean using a combination of Enjo and Nature Direct, and provide Eco Store brand dishwashing liquid and toilet cleaner for guest use.
Our electricity and gas is provided by Red Energy, 100 percent owned by Australia's Snowy Hydro and employing over 500 customer service staff in Melbourne. For every unit of electricity we buy from Red Energy Snowy Hydro Limited, they match it by generating one unit of electricity from a renewable source.
We source our toilet paper through 'Who Gives A Crap', who donate 50% of their profits to WaterAid to build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world. Their toilet paper is sustainably produced, contains no chlorine, inks, dyes or perfumes and is biodegradable.
We maintain our low maintenance gardens using hand weeding and Certified Organic herbicide 'BioWeed'. This product is pine oil based and is safe for pets.
Our belief is that when you know better, you do better - so if you have any suggestions for how we can improve please let us know!
Single night stays
For a single night stay, we recommend a motel as the most suitable option. Our minimum stay period covers the cost of preparing the entire property for our guests and maximises availability for travellers.
