Going for the green generation

Updated: Jul 26, 2018

Welcome to the very first-ever Knickknack blog post!

To commemorate such a momentous occasion, we want to shed even more light on an already well-lit topic: recycling.

A lot of waste happens in the hospitality industry, whether it be food or non-perishable items such as the containers that we put our amazing chicken noodle salads in. We want to change that, and although we are one small takeaway cafe out of many, no change is too small.

Saving the environment is no small feat - in fact, it's a pretty big statement (and we're pretty small to make such a big claim!). Rather, we're just doing our best on minimising the negative impact we have on the environment.

Here is what we're doing to (try) save the majestic sea mammals that are the whales:

  • Use biodegradable packaging - Check out our change-making supplier Biopak! From supplying our colourful cups to to our salad bowls, they help us help the environment. (Hint: Did you know our cutlery is reusable? Wash and keep them for a few more meals!)

  • Recycle - All our milk bottles, both plastic and carton ones, goes in our designated recycling bin. We also recycle other things including the cardboard boxes that our fresh veggies come in.

  • Reusable coffee cups - If you haven't yet, check our cabinet for Frank Green cups. We stock the original style coffee cups and smart bottles in a variety of colours, as well as their newest 'Next Generation' stainless steel and Visa Paywave cups.

If we have recently asked you if you needed cutlery for your food, this is why! We'd like to reduce the amount of waste as much as possible and we want our amazing customers to be a part of it.
