Describe the impact of your location on your business

Our story – We are blessed to live beside the ocean in the remote West Highlands of Scotland. We are very aware of plastic pollution from our daily beach walks, where we are continuously collecting what washes up on the tides. Sometimes timeless treasures of driftwood but more often than not, plastic pollution, rope, tyres, toothbrushes, micro plastics, single use bottles, the list of what we have found is endless.

Cory Jones is an ecologist and runs the award winning Gairloch Canoe and Kayak Centre, a leave no trace trainer, a campaigner and environmentalist. Mandy is an artist, writer and illustrator of children’s books, fun books with a subtle message, inspired by her love of the Highlands and nature.

Mandy loves to recycle, and inspired to reuse the retired bedlinen her one room B&B and holiday home generated and combined with the collapse of all tourism in The Highlands due to Covid-19, WASaBed was born.

What would you list as your biggest achievement(s)?
