GREEN GIFTING: Tips for Brilliant Low-Waste Gifts

Want to savor the joy of giving without creating a waste nightmare? We got you. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of brilliant tips for gifts that are fun to give and receive, and don’t create mountains of trash! ‘EXPERIENCE’ Gifts According to Bea Johnson, queen of the Zero Waste movement, centering your life around experiences rather than things leads to greater health and happiness, and less waste.  So why not make like Bea and gift experiences. Check out these ideas for memory-making gifts: A voucher for a favorite cafe, restaurant, or maybe a wine or whiskey tasting. A Getaway – why not take your nearest and dearest somewhere special? Tickets to a show. There are so many options – theatre shows, movies, concerts,  comedy specials etc. Tickets to the next big game. A visit to a Wildlife sanctuary, safari, reserve, garden or aquarium. For those who like pampering, you could gift a treatment or spa trip. For adrenaline junkies, adventure sports and activities are a great way to go – like abseiling, caving, sand-boarding and bungee jumping. LOCAL Gifts If you do want to give a special something, visit a local market or shop and get a uniquely South African item from one of our many outstanding local designers. We are truly blessed to have such an incredible array of local clothing, homeware, ceramics, art, crafts, jewelry, shoes, lighting and so much more! And much of it can be found unpackaged at markets or retail outlets. HOME BAKED Goodness Giving home-baked goodies is another great low-waste option. Everyone loves home-made brownies, biscuits, muffins in biodegradable tulip cups and jams in recycled glass jars. For wrapping, use compostable greaseproof paper tied with twine, adding a sprig of something green or a flower to finish off the look. This is a great low-waste way to wrap other gifts too, of course! The Ultimate GREEN Gift Plants do so much for us: cleaning the air, capturing carbon and making things beautiful. At the same time they support all life at the base of the food web. (Not to mention that we literally couldn’t make any of our biodegradable packaging products without them!) So, obviously, we think plants make great green gifts. From beautiful flowers (without any plastic wrapping), to potted plants, to plants for the garden. If you’re giving garden plants to someone who loves birds, butterflies and/or bees, choose varieties that will attract them into their garden. And a final great thing about plants is that they can keep on giving for years to come!  

Fego Caffe: Leading the Change in Gaborone

A First for Botswana Fego Caffe Gaborone has just become Botswana’s first restaurant to implement 100% biodegradable packaging for all takeaways! We’d like to congratulate them on their launch last week and are super excited that they’ve chosen to partner with us on this journey. Most packaging used in Botswana is non-biodegradable and very little is recycled, placing pressure on the natural world. In contrast, biodegradable materials can be broken down by micro-organisms, leaving no trace. The management of Fego Caffe are aware of the environmental impacts of packaging, and felt compelled to participate in the solution. So they’re leading the change with a switch to healthy packaging in Gaborone. Fego Caffe are focusing on the maxim that all change starts at an individual level and we can be the change we want to see. They hope they will inspire other food outlets and retailers to also adopt sustainable solutions. GREEN Food On-The-Go Fego Caffe Gaborone offers a Mediterranean style caffe vibe, with an emphasis on caffe rather than restaurant. The idea is to give people on the move access to quick, easy meals –  serving good food to families and business parties alike. They are inspired by the support of their customers, who are showing a willingness to embrace the move toward biodegradable packaging. We’re so excited by this bold move and look forward to the continued growth of an environmentally progressive, healthy and prosperous Africa. Below are a few more pics from the Fego Caffe Gaborone launch last Thursday:      

Served GREEN @ The Creamery

The Creamery have just reached a new milestone. This November marks 7 years of serving exceptional ice-cream to the Cape, as sustainably as possible. We sat down with their brand manager, Maggie, in their Newlands cafe to find out how they do it – over coffee and ice-cream, of course! Below are our key take-aways for how The Creamery are aiming to achieve solid green credentials. 100% Natural The Creamery’s core ethos is to make the best ice-cream they possibly can using natural ingredients. Nothing artificial is ever added – only quality, whole foods like real free range eggs, lots of fresh fruit, nuts and bean-to-bar chocolate. All the flavor comes from the ingredients, so freshness and quality are essential for impactful flavor. Hey Sugar! We learned that The Creamery love serving their scoops in our sugarcane ice-cream bowls not only because they’re compostable, but because using packaging made from waste sugarcane fiber is a perfect fit for ice-cream. The sugarcane plant supplies both sweetness and packaging! That’s serious plant power. We were also delighted to hear that The Creamery have been composting all their organic waste since day 1. And they have a 2 bin system in store – empowering their customers to compost too. Strictly Seasonal Using the freshest ingredients means that Mother Nature guides the menu. For example, peak quality granadillas are available mostly in December and January. So that’s when you’ll find granadilla ice-cream. In a culture accustomed to on-demand, it’s a refreshing return to seasonality. Maggie spoke of how special it feels when particular fruits – and the flavors they bring – come into season, allowing them to be savored with new appreciation. Empower Local Empowering local farmers is central to the aims of The Creamery. They have been sourcing produce from small local farms and businesses and supporting farmers using sustainable methods since inception. Reset the Narrative The Creamery enjoy creating stores where sustainability is a streamlined part of the business. Having biodegradable packaging and compost bins is a great way to reset the narrative. They don’t believe people need to be guilted into doing the right thing – education and empowerment are far more effective. Energy Efficient Ice-cream, of course, needs excellent, and reliable refrigeration. No-one wants to see top quality ice-cream and ingredients wasted! The Creamery have an energy audit and plan created by Ecolution Consulting, to ensure their ice-cream is protected in the event of load shedding or power cuts. That way, food waste is avoided, and their energy usage is kept as low as possible. The Creamery have definitely taken ice-cream to the next-level in Cape Town – both in terms of quality and sustainability. To end off, we had to ask Maggie her favorite summer flavor. She couldn’t settle on one, but narrowed it down to three: White Nectarine, Granadilla Choc Chip, and Strawberry. Yum! Hungry? Check out their Instagram page for updates, info and flavors and watch out for their new store opening in Durbanville soon!
