At Dosa Love we constantly work to improve our sustainability.
Thinking about the environment has been something I have done since I was a kid.
It’s something I have been doing as a business since 2012. Back then I used vegware packaging, recycled and shopped local. In the early 90’s I encouraged my family to re-cycle before it was even a thing.
Our aim is to limit our impact on the environment by constantly assessing what we do.
We currently do the following:
Offer all our food in biodegradable packaging
Offer plant-based food options only
Trade at events with a similar ethos to our own
Work at the Pulp Friction kitchen, sharing resources
Limit car travel by operating on a small scale and combining journeys
Limiting our printed materials
Getting creative with stall signs, repurposing old boards, making decorations from recycled fabrics and packaging
I have a small wormery for home use
Supply left over food to organisations that can pass it on, whenever practicable
Utilise spreadsheets to plan food orders to minimise on waste when cooking
Use careful rotation systems and ensure that we use food within it’s BBE
We freeze, ferment and pickle foods to limit food waste
We work on a small scale with a small gazebo, keeping the weight and size down so that we don’t need to use a large van for our regular work.Helping to limit emissions
Use eco-friendly sanitiser
Our aims for 2020:
We aim to source more of our fresh food locally from small scale suppliers to limit food miles, packaging and contribute to the circular economy
We aim to source more of our packaged ingredients in plastic free packaging and work with existing suppliers to minimise waste by using re-useable packaging, or no packaging
Work with other small and local food businesses to encourage shopping locally and with small producers
Expand the wormery to process work food scraps
Create a compost heap to use with my first veg patch at home – using the work food scraps
Share more information on-line about how we operate to show our customers what we are doing and encourage others to do the same
Recycle our regular packaging in to decorations for the stall
Plan further in advance with dry food orders
The above lists are not exhaustive. There are always things we do without even realising it.
We will always find more ways to make more changes and we will continue to do so.
