Dynamic Earth is proudly supported by the Green Tourism Business Scheme and is delighted to hold a Gold Green Tourism Rating since 2011, this award the highest achievement that is considered outstanding and inspirational.
The Food Chain Café aims to use locally-sourced ingredients and Scottish suppliers wherever possible, and are proud holders of the Taste Our Best award. Take a look at some of our green initiatives below:
The Café also work in conjunction with Vegware to cut down on single-use plastics – they provide us with a huge range of compostable food packaging (everything from coffee cups to cutlery and straws!) for use in the Café. Conventional food packaging is often contaminated with food residue which makes it hard to recycle, and it usually ends up either being burned or in landfill. Vegware on the other hand, is different, as it’s made from plants not plastic and is 100% compostable! Check out our case study here!
We have switched from selling plastic juice bottles to recyclable glass & cans. We are also now selling a range of reusable milk bottles, water bottles, mugs and coffee cups. We are registered as a water station on the Refill App where you can refill your reusable bottles. You can purchase Sorbos edible straws for 50p at the Food Chain Café till.
Our outdoor picnic benches are made from 100% recycled plastic and one of the tables is even wheelchair accessible.
