Sustainability and environmental protection

 

We share responsibility for our environment together with you. Please help us to minimise pollution as much as possible.

 

Water: In Germany this important resource seems to be available infinitely for us. But first problems with the water supply for large cities and falling groundwater levels inflicting serious damage to forests as a consequence show that for us in northern Germany, too, it is important to limit water consumption without sacrificing comfort.

 

Waste water: Our waste water is purified by means of a fully organic treatment system and then removed via the runoff ditches. This equipment is very sensitive to sanitary fluids, so please either do not use these at all or only use sanitary fluids which work without any bactericidal additives. Please also help to protect the environment by only using biodegradable detergents and cleaning materials. Please also do not dispose of hygiene products such as sanitary towels, nappies and wet wipes in our toilets.

 

Electricity: We obtain our electricity exclusively from renewable energy sources. We use energy-saving illuminants and presence detectors.

 

Hot water and heating: We converted the complete heating system to a wood pellet heating system in order to achieve a neutral CO2 balance. It is an optimal type of energy, not least because of the proximity of the raw material source for environmental protection. We mainly use the waste heat from a nearby combined heat and power plant, which is used to produce electricity from biogas.

 

Waste separation: As the dumping of waste is no longer permitted in Germany, we ask you to help us in avoiding and sorting waste. Our campsite will do everything possible to reduce environmental pollution and avoid cost increases in this regard for you as our visitors. 

 

Nordseecamping is a member of Ecocamping. You can find information about the work of Ecocamping at reception or on the internet: www.ecocamping.net.
 

 

The following measures have already been implemented:

 

  • Waste separation in the recycling yard

  • Fully biological waste water treatment system

  • Washbasin and shower fittings, which turn off automatically

  • Light control via presence detector

  • Heating with the exhaust heat of the biogas plant

  • The use of solar energy equipment
