Ever since we took over the business in 2014 we have been heavily focused on how we can make our impact on the environment as little as possible. Initially this was to look at what we could do quickly to improve recycling and waste. We changed the way waste food was disposed of and got a food waste bin from the Council. We also started to recycle as much of the packaging as we could which had previously been going to landfill. At the present time (2019) we recycle most of our plastic (through a locally run recycling scheme), food waste is either recycled or given to charities such as Patch, metal and glass are all recycled and even our oil from our olives is deposited in the relevant oil bank in the local recycling centre.
Recently we replaced all our old fluorescent lighting with LED lighting which will save a huge amount of energy use in the shop.
