“It’s mostly for the environmental impact and it’s our ethos as chefs to be responsible. We use organic local produce; it’s very important to be plastic free as part of that and also to spread the word.
 
“When you work in commercial kitchens you get to see how much waste there is, and it’s crazy. Even a small café like this can generate so much waste. So when you know about it you want to do something.”
