We believe in the importance of existing sustainably and put much thought into reducing our environmental impact. Our store operations are built around environmentally-conscious, green practices. We are proud to be using stainless steel straws in all our cafes, and are working towards phasing out completely the use of plastic in our takeaway packaging. Boxes are tied with twine to reduce the use of paper bags and our Bring-Your-Own-Box policy encourages customers to bring their own takeaway boxes or cups by offering a $0.50 discount. Being a partner of Muuse, a reusable cup sharing network, helps us to encourage our guests to reduce the use of single-use cups as well.
We are eager participants of the nation’s pilot food waste co-digestion project, and work alongside other food establishments in sending our food waste and kitchen scraps to a co-digestion facility. Our unsold bakes at the end of each day are redistributed to needy families or the underprivileged by the good efforts of Food Bank Singapore. We also collaborate closely and frequently with social enterprises, such as Sowing Room, to produce homeware goods under Plain Vanilla Home whilst supporting their honourable causes.
