💚Environmental security Michael Gove has placed a ban on plastic straws and other products to begin in 2020 and we think it’s about time! 💚We would like to take this chance to highlight a few things we do here at TCK and hopefully give you a few ideas on how to help our lovely planet 🌏 💚Since we have opened we have always used biodegradable takeaway packaging, this allows all packaging to go with food waste and it will biodegrade in 6 weeks (most straws,stirrers etc will take up 100 years ).
💚We return all boxes and plastic veg trays to our suppliers for reuse or found great ways to use them ourselves (filing system!) and have always used glass bottles for all our drinks.
💚Like most professional kitchens we reuse all storage containers for as long as they are still hygienic to do so
💚Any retail jars and bottles are encouraged to be retuned to reuse and if you do so we will give you a free coffee 😱
💚You can also bring in your keep cups and receive a discount on your drink!
💚Due to storage issues we have no space for recycling boxes/bins so we always recycled all bottles and cardboard by hand ourselves by using public recycling locations 💚We make sure we order as locally as possible (bread and fish are a 30 second walk in each direction!) and we also order in bulk as and when we can. This allows us to reduce transport and mileage for our deliveries. 💚Our paper for our menus are all FSC credited and recycled too 📖 and when we are done old paper gets turned into notepads for staff to use!
💚Going forward we are going to work closely with our suppliers as we are looking to reduce 95% of single use plastic from the Cafe. We are currently working with suppliers to eliminate as much plastic from our deliveries as possible (there are certain legal limitations regarding hygiene that make it hard to reach 100% for now)
💚And by the way..... if you need any coffee grounds for your compost or garden (great slug repellents) just ask!
💚We try as hard as we can and if anyone has any suggestions to help us be better we would love to hear them! #brixham #devon #torbay #plastic #recycle #reuse
