Supporting Plastic Free Eastbourne and our environmentEastbourne Council has recently agreed to reduce the amount of single use plastic used in its day to day work, it recently voted to reduce the amount of single use plastic used in its venues.
The Council supports local and national initiatives such as Plastic Free Coastlines and Surfers against Sewage.
Eastbourne Hospitality Association has also pledged their support to these initiatives. I am sure you are aware of the devastating effect plastic is having on our oceans, as recently highlighted in the BBC’s Blue Planet series.
Every year up to 13 million tons of plastic leaks into our oceans, smothering coral reefs and killing wildlife. So………I have decided to do my bit and cut down on the amount of plastic, particularly single use plastic used in Number Ninety One. In waste bins and in the kitchen I use bio degradable bin liners. I have removed plastic cups from the bathrooms and replaced them with glass beakers. I provide you with glass water bottles, instead of plastic which I replenish every morning, you will find fresh milk, in bottles, in the fridge in your room. The milkman delivers fresh milk to the door in glass bottles. Toiletries are now in re fillable and reusable containers. Bottles, glass or plastic used in your rooms is all recycled. In the dining room, you will find preserves and sauces in glass jars and bottles. I will serve fresh loose tea in tea pots for breakfast, you may know that tea bags also contain plastic. I have a quantity of Phthalate and BPA free water bottles which I am happy to fill if you wish to borrow one during your stay. I have recently become the first business in Eastbourne to become plastic free, and awarded by Surfers against Sewage the title of plastic free champion. I hope you really enjoy your stay in Eastbourne but ask that you also do your bit for the environment and avoid using plastic bags and plastic bottles, and if you are enjoying time on the beach, please put your rubbish in the recycling bins along the sea front and pick up any plastic you find on the beach, that way it’s not going into the sea and you will become part of the Plastic Free Eastbourne campaign. Thank you
Number Ninety One Bed and Breakfast is situated in Eastbourne in a great location directly opposite the sea front. Set back slightly with easy on-road free and unrestricted parking, it's a quiet location and yet close to Eastbourne's many attractions.
Number Ninety One overlooks lovely public gardens planted with a variety of mediterranian plants and is opposite the ever popular Treasure Island and Bowling Club and a few minutes walk from the historic Redoubt Fortress and Prince's Park.
The beautiful pebble beach and esplanade is opposite and visitors will enjoy the flat walk to the Pier which is a ten minute walk away. Guests can relax in the pretty Number Ninety One front garden if they wish.
