Protect the environment
• Avoid unnecessary single use plastics – bring your own plates and cutlery.
• Transport your gourmet delights securely by ditching the cling film and opting for reusable containers.
• If purchasing food, choose options that avoid unnecessary packaging, for example loose fruit and veg.
• Using reusable, insulated stainless-steel bottles will keep your water cool and your coffee hot.
• Plant based options are healthier and more sustainable. Try and avoid red meat and dairy which have the highest environmental impact
• Ask your guests to bring their own cups – better for the environment and COVID-safer too.
• Do not use disposable barbecues.
• Though sharing leftover food with nearby animals might seem tempting, leaving items like banana skins, orange peels and nut shells isn’t an environmentally friendly action. It does not biodegrade as quickly as you think and may not be a safe food source for wildlife.
• Leave the are better than you found it. Clean up after yourself, take away litter.
• Use reusable cloths and tea towels to clean up any spills, or recycled paper towels if that is not possible. Do not use wipes.
• Try and use sanitisers, insect repellents and sunscreens that contain natural products.
