We are passionate about reducing our carbon foot print, and we try to recycle or compost as much waste from the kitchen as we can. A hot composting bin processes all our food waste, producing liquid which when diluted can go straight onto the garden as plant feed. Napkins and blue roll are also on a 3 year composting cycle. Coffee grounds are used to deter slugs and snails from eating plants without using harmful pesticides. Coffee grounds also provide essential nutrients of nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus needed to help plants grow. Egg shells are baked to get rid of bacteria, and then are placed on plant beds to help deter pests.
