We're on a mission to be the first catering company in Australia to provide zero waste catered events for our clients
There's a horrifying amount of waste created by the food industry. We know it's unsustainable, so we set ourselves the challenge of proving it can be economically sustainable. If we can create a zero waste catering model, we'll be shouting it from the rooftops to ensure every catering company can do the same.
If you need help kick-starting your zero waste journey, we’ve started mentoring businesses big and small. Please get in touch with our waste to resource strategist Ilana at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0411400434 to discuss what we could do.
Things we already do
green waste - from kitchen prep gets composted at Rose Bay Community Garden.
cardboard boxes - any food delivered in cardboard boxes go back to our suppliers to reuse; those from one off suppliers go to Vinnies across the road (they love us for it)
reusable napkins - we created a partnership with Sydney fashion label bec & bridge who give us their linen offcuts as hankies as an alternative to single use napkins
cooking oil - is repurposed into soap, though we need to look at another business as we just found out they also use the oil to make pet food (eeep)
make our own sodas - so we can offer clients an alternative to soft drinks in plastic bottles
office paper - we're working towards a paperless office, but in the interim, paper we can't avoid gets shredded for chicken bedding at Rose Bay Community Garden
event waste collection - we provide composting boxes at catering events which we take back with us to avoid any compostable material ending up in landfill
tupperware - we use reusable tupperware only
teas - we make our own herbal and partnered with Tippity for our smokey black tea to eliminate tea bags
gladwrap - we've replaced gladwrap with a reusable silicon food grade material
