The boxes our products are packaged in as well as the bubble wrap are reused by customers at the tills. Grower plant trays are either returned to our suppliers or used by customers to take home their plant purchases. This means that our 100% biodegradable plastic bag sales are now at a minimum and we hope to eradicate their use altogether within the next 2 years. Additionally we offer wholly recyclable paper bags and paper boot liner for those customers that require them.
We use a local company to collect and reuse the white pallets our deliveries arrive on and CHEP collect those on the blue pallet reuse scheme.
Our café only uses local suppliers, recycled and recyclable takeaway packaging with a compostable lids, paper straws, and our cooking oil is collected for recycling into biofuels. Our coffee beans are sold in wholly recyclable paper sacks. We work to a planned strategy for reduction of food waste from our café.
Our waste water is channelled into a septic tank system to minimise any impact of our waste treatment on the environment.
The waste we place in our skips for collection is separated and recycled at the waste plant.
