Also at the hut, in all aspects where we can do something about it, we have eliminated the use of plastic, especially single-use plastic.
We have, for example, no plastic bottles, neither for service nor for take-away. The tins for taking home leftover food are made of cardboard and we have no disposable packaging (jams, butter, honey, coffee capsules).
One of the important objectives of cooking is, in addition to serving good food to the best of our ability, to minimise, or better still avoid, food waste. Waste from processing that can no longer be used in any way ends up feeding our compost heap.
We are, of course, aware that these initiatives are not enough to make this hut an environmentally sustainable place; suffice it to say that we depend on a power generator to produce the electricity needed to run the hut. In our own small way, however, we try to do our best, in the conviction that big changes always start with small steps.
