In a bid to be more environmentally friendly we have replaced all our takeaway containers, coffee cups and cutlery with compostable alternatives – even the plastic lids and straws are made from vegetable products so they are fully compostable. The product we are using is Vegware.
Vegware is made from plants not plastic and can be recycled with food waste (the mix of materials and food waste made it really difficult to recycle the products we had before).
Vegware products break down in less than 12 weeks in industrial composting and returns nutrients to the soil.
Not only are Vegware products made from recycled and renewable products, but they are also strong!
We’ve also introduced a re-usable water can too (plastic water bottles are the only single use plastic we have, so this is a way to try to combat that).
CanO Water was created in response to the damaging impact that plastic bottles have on the environment.
With approximately 8 million tonnes of plastic ending up in the ocean each year, CanO Water is an infinitely recyclable alternative to plastic bottles. Recycle your can and it will be back on the shelf in as little as 6 weeks. PLUS it is resealable – you can simply reseal the can and drink later. You can even refill your can and use again and again.
We also sell reusable water bottles and coffee mugs too, we’ve broken down the price of all our takeaway hot drinks so you can see the cost of the disposable cup – and you’ll save that cost every time you fill up with a reusable cup!
Here a little video from Vegware for more information.
