Suffolk tourism businesses are being urged to “give back to the natural environment” which makes the county an attractive place to visit.

The Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is launching its new Getting the Green Edge guide in Leiston this month.

“We want tourism businesses in our area to thrive and to give back to the natural environment which underpins our attractiveness as a county and support those that look after it,” the guide says.

“We all know that people go on holiday to escape from it all and to have a good time at the best price whilst getting a high quality experience. Did you know, however, that 75% of UK travellers consider the environment when choosing a holiday and some like to give back to nature while on their holidays?”

The guides have been created to support businesses attract visitors, while “giving back to nature”.

It includes tried and tested actions, details of the help that is available to businesses, as well as organisations that are supporting nature in Suffolk. It was created as part of the Coastal Communities Funded project Developing prospects on the Suffolk Coast: Economy, People, Environment. It was produced by Angela Wright and Deborah Wargate and edited by Catherine Smith.
