How our Brack Tours Employees Keep Brack Green

Our employees are our key asset when it comes to green tourism and reducing our carbon footprint in Ireland. They do this in many different ways whether it is car sharing, walking to work or even being more adventurous and cycling to work, our team members go that extra mile to maintain our green work ethos. Below you will find some of our employees green journeys to work:-

Nuala Devlin

Our very own Nuala embraces a simple saying “Burn Energy not Fuel”. Nuala has done this by purchasing a bicycle from Cycle Recycle Newry, who promote cycling through affordability by providing reusable bicycles that have been discarded by those who no longer need them. With this simple idea many people in Newry will enhance their lifestyle by improving emotional, physical & mental wellbeing. Nuala also has encouraged other office goers to purchase re-used bicycles and to also embrace Nuala’s “Burn Energy not Fuel” Moto.

Debra Devlin

Debra Devlin encourages the same simple saying by using a different method. She believes that walking to work will greatly reduce her carbon footprint in the local Newry & Mourne area. Debra often walks 2 mile to work every day and 2 mile back home in the evenings. She is also eagerly encouraging other colleagues to walk to work and is anticipating the Mourne International Walking Festival in June.

Sinead Greaney

Sinead has a very simple work at home ethos, where she is eagerly cutting back on her carbon footprint. By not travelling using any method of transport. This allows Sinead to cut back on office costings within Brack Tours, this significantly reduces our carbon & Co2 emissions, reducing electric & water costs each year.

James Mullen

Our very own James Mullen lives the furthest from our Newry based office and is always concerned about the environment. Due to this James has come up with his own methods on a weekly basis on how he can help to reduce his carbon footprint. His first thought is to use public transport when possible, which greatly reduces Co2 emissions as James does not have to drive to Newry each day. When this is not possible James and his friends who also work in Newry, Car share taking turns on who drives on a weekly basis. This helps to decrease the wear and tear of each of their cars as they reduce the amount of journeys taken by each vehicle.
