Our Vision

As a small company within a growing community we feel it is important for us to become as environmentally friendly as possible. We have used compostable coffee cups since opening the café 4 years ago and we’ve strived to improve our carbon footprint as we have become more established.

Other projects we have been working on are; recycling, including signing up to become a drop off point for the teracycle scheme for all crisp packages, food wastage, reducing fruit and vegetable packaging, using compostable take-away packaging and using environmentally friendly cleaning products.

We are about to launch a re-usable hot drinks cup and we are trying to keep costs down so that customers will be encouraged to help us on our mission to become a more environmentally friendly café.

At our sister café, Ugly Bug Café, in The Natural History Museum in Tring we have introduced a non-plastic policy. We do not sell plastic bottled drinks and all our take-away food is wrapped in compostable packaging. 

As a company we will aim to play our part, but we require the support of our customers. Please use the recycling bins provided and bring in one of our re-usable cups or even your own to help reduce the amount of waste going to landfill sites. 

Many thanks
