Keeping Brack Tours ``Green``...

How We Do It:

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:-

Our employees green journeys to work:

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. They provide reusable bicycles that have been discarded. With this simple idea many people in Newry will enhance their lifestyle through emotional, physical & mental well-being. Nuala also has encouraged other office goers to purchase re-used bicycles and to also embrace her Moto.

Sinead has a very simple work at home ethos, where she is eagerly reducing her carbon footprint. This allows Sinead to cut back on office costings within Brack Tours, thus significantly reduces our carbon & Co2 omissions, reducing electric & water costs each year.

Debra Devlin embraces Nuala’s moto, although through a different means. She believes that walking to work will greatly reduce her carbon footprint in the local Newry & Mourne area. Debra often walks 4 mile to and from work every day. She also eagerly encourages other colleagues to walk to work and eagerly anticipates the Mourne International Walking Festival every June.

The youngest member of the team James Mullen lives the furthest from our Newry 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 to reduce his carbon footprint. His use of public transport when possible, greatly reduces Co2 emissions as negating the need to drive to Newry each day. When this is not possible James and his friends who also work in Newry, car share. Thus, 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 number of journeys taken by each vehicle.

Public Transport:

Our staff inspire us to make sure that each one of our tours remain as green as possible. We hope to inspire all of our clients to use public transport or commuter services when possible in Ireland & Northern Ireland.

Matthews Coach Hire Ltd is based in Ireland and provides express direct commuter services along the M1 corridor.

No matter what the reason for travelling to Dublin, Matthews provided the best, most affordable service available.
