Reusable & Cleanable Drinking...

RiversideUnited States

This is a reusable drinking straw that comes completely apart for thorough and easy cleaning. The plastic it is made from is BPA free and dishwasher safe. With much of the waste created and amassed by the use of disposable straws, these serve as a simple solution and strong alternative to their related counterparts.

Supermarket Compostable Packaging

HoustonUnited States

We noticed the vegetables for dinner came in semi-compostable packaging, with a compostable tray. We are fairly new to composting, but will make sure to notice items like this more.

State Park Native Plant...

Golden PondUnited States

The visitor center provides information about creating pollinator and native plant gardens for hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees.

They recommend:

  • Growing native plants in your garden
  • Planting a diversity of flowering species
  • Not using pesticides or herbicides
  • Providing sunny, bare soil areas for ground-nesting bees.

 

Pollinators are a vital part of maintaining our ecosystems. Many crops, plant species, and nearly every flowering plant on earth require help with pollination. ‘Somewhere between 75% and 95% of all flowering plants on the earth need help with pollination – they need pollinators.

Pollinators provide pollination services to over 180,000 different plant species and more than 1200 crops. In addition to the food that we eat, pollinators support healthy ecosystems that clean the air, stabilize soils, protect from severe weather, and support other wildlife (Pollinator Partnership).’

Our fish from the grill is MSC certified, which means we only accept fish that is sustainably caught by local fishermen. In turn, we know future generations will be able to use and take advantage responsibly of the same fish resources as we have now.

Restaurant Food Waste Practices

LondonUnited Kingdom

When it comes to food waste, we try our best to generate the least amount as possible by encouraging guests to only order what they can eat and offering doggy bags for any leftovers. All food waste we generate is sent to anaerobic digestion plants, which in turn provides electricity. We also have a zero landfill waste policy.

Our organization gathers surplus food from all types of food providers in order to tackle food waste and eliminate hunger, contribute to charities in need, and educate and involve communities by increasing awareness about food waste, rescue, and security.

We provide rescued food through our supermarket and band of food trucks, while also directing it to more than 900 charities across Australia. To date, we have delivered over 60 million meals and saved more than 20,000 tonnes of food from ending up in a landfill.
