Love Your Lakes

Love Your Lakes aims to improve water quality in Lake Windermere and the surrounding catchment lakes. They're helping local businesses, residents and visitors to take simple lake friendly steps to support the reduction of harmful blue green algae blooms.

If you are staying in self-catering accommodation, please use the following phosphate free products for your dishwasher;

  • 'Planet Clean' 5-in-1 dishwasher tablets
  • Persil Powerpro Dishwasher Tablets
  • Sainsbury’s 'All in One Ultimate Dishwasher Tablets'
  • Co Op 'Premium Powerpod'
  • Tesco 'Naturally'
  • Ecover

If you are staying at a hotel please ask if they use phosphate free products for their dishwasher. The more local businesses who are aware of this issue the better!

The Lakes are rich in areas of special architectural or historic interest and it's important we protect them. You can learn more about the conservation areas in the Lake District on the LDNP website.
