I have been thinking about ways in which our little business operates and I think we are doing a few environmentally sound things.
We could always do better but we are trying to get it right.
v The pasties and pies are labelled with pastry letters so we don’t need to label the packaging.
v We use paper bags and try to remember to ask our customers if they need a bag. So many people now carry shopping bags with them.
v Our vegetable peelings either go to compost or chicken mash.
v Any open bottles of left over wine go in the chef that evening not down the drain.
v We recycle our card, tin, plastic boxes and glass waste.
v Our local butcher supplies most of our meat, which he gets delivered from the nearest slaughter house.
v We re-use the empty paper flour sacks to put any food waste in which then goes into our ‘food waste’ bin that the council empty each week
Things to work on:
v Sourcing flour (that we can afford to buy) from within Europe.
v Using more of our own veg.
v Trying to do more local events
and lots more I’m sure…………
