How we're protecting the planet
The cafe opened on 30th March 2018 and has been committed to being ‘single use plastic’ free since day one.
The team is honoured to be the first of @cleanoceansailing’s Helford Heroes. We are committed to keeping the cafe free of single use plastic. It’s really not that difficult and just requires some really simple changes. No bottled water….tap water is great and FREE. We’ll fill your reusable water bottles for you too. We only offer stainless steel straws (compostable straws don’t break down in landfill). The cafe doesn't use takeaway cups….customers can borrow a mug or buy one of our reusable cups. There is no clingfilm in the kitchen and we’re talking to suppliers about packaging too.
