Unless you’ve worked in a Clapham Common restaurant you simply wouldn’t believe the amount of waste food that we have to discard every day. Obviously there are the leftovers (although very few fortunately – I suppose that must say a good deal about our food!) but there is also waste food matter such as skins, bones, cores, crusts, peelings and other stuff you probably don’t want to think about when sitting down for your dinner.
Why am I telling you this? Because I feel that as a popular Clapham Common restaurant we have a responsibility to try to do our bit to reduce waste and landfill. For that reason we are now committing ourselves to sending ALL waste food products to be bio-degraded. This is a much better option since this process takes only three days. Now imagine that everything from Friday night could be so completely disposed of by Monday morning!
Like you we abhor the vast quantity of litter which seems to kick about the streets, much of it packaging, and much of it covered in waste food stuffs. Not only does it attract pigeons, seagulls, rats and foxes (something most of us are particularly keen not to do at present), but it is quite clearly unhygienic, and takes a long time to naturally biodegrade. sending waste food stuffs to landfill isn’t much better – it takes ages to decompose and represents a health hazard that we can’t see.
Using a composting process that bio-degrades waste food material within three days we aim to lead the way in ecological, environmentally conscious dining, without losing anything from the process. As a popular Clapham Common restaurant, it’s in our name to be aware of the ecological impact of what we do. So sit down, tuck in safe in the knowledge that we’re doing our bit to clear the plates whilst you’re doing your bit!
