Our journey to zero waste
We believe that a social conscience is the responsibility of every business, not just the large corporations, that is why we are striving to be as responsible a business as possible and make the right choices.
We have already
- Pledged to plant a tree for every 1,000 disposable cups we purchase, this is the equivalent amount of paper taken to make the cups, although we also buy recycled paper cups.
- Donate our unsold but fresh food to a local homeless charity.
The next step has been something we have been working on for some time and after meeting with lot of bespoke providers we have finally found a buffet platter made from recycled cardboard that looks classy, is food safe and can be disposed of straight into the blue bin. The above platter will start leaving our kitchen next week and will replace the black and clear plastic platters for our buffets. As with the cups we will also plant a tree for every 200 platters purchased. Our earth miles account is looking pretty good!
We will keep moving our business in the right direction so, you our customer, can buy from us with confidence. We have a few projects ongoing and we look forward to sharing them with you soon
