As environmental concerns become more prevalent, our business adopted sustainable strategies. These strategies aim to reduce our business’s negative impact on the environment and increase its positive impact instead.
Our sustainable business strategy is a set of actionable steps that we take to improve our impact on the community and the environment.
We believe if all of us do as much as possible, no matter how big or small, it will work on a larger scale and our planet will recover and regenerate.
Here is how we do our part:
We buy bulk. It saves packaging and waste.
We use powdered eggs and milk, this way they take less space, less packaging and lasts longer, so we are sure that the product we offer to you would always be up to our high standards.
We buy strawberries and blueberries in bulk too, so there are less plastic containers to go to recycling.
All the organic waste from strawberries, lemons & bananas is placed into compost.
When we go shopping, we buy all fresh ingredients in one trip, saving fuel, and when we order our containers and cutlery, we make a big order, so it's delivered less frequently.
All plastic containers are recycled & all cardboard boxes dropped off to the cardboard box collection centre.
We reuse jam jars for storing our coconut, cacao, walnuts and lemons, and all our strawberries, blueberries, mushrooms, feta & salad are in glass containers with the lid.
To serve food to our customers we use Premium brown kraft paper trays. These premium compostable takeaway trays are higher quality and finish, and are suitable for semi liquid food. These premium trays are made from 100% biodegradable and eco-friendly materials making them an excellent sustainable packaging option!
If you decide to take our crepes home, we can serve them in a lidded brown kraft container which is also compostable or recyclable.
If needed, we pack your food in a non-printed paper reusable bag. This bag is made in Australia, from Australian paper and it is both 100% compostable or recyclable.
As far as eco tableware goes, wooden cutlery is an absolute necessity. Not only is this cutlery of high build quality & made from environmentally conscious materials, but it’s also 100% home compostable. An added benefit of using this cutlery set is that it is more hygienic than loose cutlery. This is thanks to it's protective paper wrapper. This ensures that the cutlery and napkin stay fresher for longer. Made from sustainably sourced birch, the cutlery is fully compostable. This is better for the environment than other wood sources. As standard, this set comes with a brown lunch napkin. All contents of this set are 100% biodegradable and compostable, making them a great eco-friendly alternative.
