We believe in the mantra of reduce, reuse, recycle. We reuse all our packaging in order to reduce our carbon footprint and that’s why sometimes your purchases will come in an old wine box! In the office we try to print as little as possible and to reuse all paper so that we can keep waste to a minimum. We’re always happy to find a new use for something because sometimes pre-used just means pre-loved!
Our recycling program means that we are mindful that just because we are finished with something doesn’t mean that we can just throw it out to landfill. That’s why we are careful to recycle our coffee pods and printing cartridges, batteries and bulbs, and any paper or packaging that cannot be re-used. We donate used electrical goods and mobile phones to charity in Africa.
We love that oysters are such a naturally sustainable product that actively work to improve the quality of the water they grow in and their environment. We encourage all growers we work with to join Origin Green (Ireland’s food and drink sustainability programme), so that we can be confident that the shellfish we sell are farmed responsibly and in a sustainable way.
Increasingly our customers want to know that their purchases are produced in a sustainable fashion. This is of particular importance for those customers who are conscious of reducing their carbon footprint around their packaging for retail. So we are committing to putting this at the heart of how we do business into the future. We will endeavour to always look for the most sustainable products to answer our customers’ needs.
Whenever possible we have always tried to find a local supplier for our products and services and this remains a top priority for us.
