Port Elliot YHA

Port Elliot YHA and Sustainability

Port Elliot YHA is committed to creating a more sustainable future, together. We aim to reduce our footprint through more sustainable practices including participating in Earth Hour and Clean up Australia Day each year, and a whole bunch more! Some of our commitments include:

YHA Sustainability - Energy


Energy reduction:

  • Low energy lighting used throughout the hostel
  • Motion sensor lighting in common areas
  • Use partial green energy from electricity supplier
  • Promotion of public transport including bike rental and free bike storage – the easiest way to reduce your carbon footprint!
YHA Sustainability - Waste

   Waste Minimisation:

  • Recycling stations in kitchens, common areas and office areas to recycle anything from printer cartridges or our 100% recycled paper, to tinnies of beer and plastic containers, dead batteries and even organic waste for compost!
  • No plastic bottles or plastic bags on site, we only sell reusable
  • Onsite veggie garden so you can grab what you need  
YHA Sustainability - Water

  Water Saving:

  • Our showers and taps are 4 stars! 4 WELS stars that is… our toilets? They’re dual flush and our urinals are waterless for peak bathroom efficiency!
  • Drought resistant gardens not only do good, but they look good too
