Wastage & Recycling
• In the first instance we reduce the amount of packaging/wastage, we then re-use materials wherever possible be it cardboard boxes, plant pots or bubble wrap.
•If we cannot re-use it, we recycle it; we currently recycle paper, card, cans, glass, printer cartridges, wood, food waste from the restaurant, and as much plastic as we can. All our used vegetable oil is recycled into biodiesel and industrial hand soap. Only as a last resort does anything go in the bin.
• Communications, such as our quarterly newsletter, are delivered electronically reducing use of paper.
• Our enormous, underground 80,000 L water tank collects rain and run-off water which we then filter and re-use to irrigate our plants as well as flush the toilets.
