SUSTAINABILITY AT DAYLESFORD
For over 40 years we have worked with a conscience to make real food with the simplest ingredients, better for our wellbeing, our soil and our future…and we have only just begun.
We don’t waste a scrap of food, and by 2020 will be sending zero to landfill
We compost, reuse and recycle at every opportunity and value the true cost of real food.
The hidden cost of food in the UK is having a detrimental effect on our health, our environment and our soil so we must shop wisely to avoid waste associated with mass-produced, artificially cheap food.
By 2020, our farm will be 75% energy self-sufficient
Clean energy starts with cutting back on consumption – so switch off lights and electrical devices not in use. Consider your mode of transport, and if you’re buying a car, why not go electric? You can then charge up using our solar panels at the Farmshop on one of our car charging stations.
Our goal is 100% recyclable, reusable or compostable packaging
We prefer to display our food in its natural state and have always chosen to give our customers paper rather than plastic carrier bags. Bring one of our sturdy paper bags back to use again, or recycle.
Invest in reusable cups for your daily coffee fix. If you bring a clean, reusable cup or salad box to a Daylesford Food-To-Go counter, you will save 50p.
