How about giving the environment a chance to breathe?

Going to a cafe and sitting in a cafe has become a common and everyday thing for many people. But with the increasing expansion of the cafe industry, how can a coffee shop attract more customers and become popular? Currently, the issue of health and compatibility of orders with the environment is no longer a theory and has become an order and is the talk of the day. Customers are also more willing to support cafes and restaurants that use environmentally friendly products. Green businesses have also realized that being a supporter of the environment helps them reduce costs in addition to gaining credit. Here are some simple tips on how to protect the environment:
Increasing awareness
Raise your awareness: Search and research available resources, issues and especially ways to protect the environment in your workplace. For example, know the manufacturers of your city or province, dry waste receiving centers, new energy reduction projects, etc. Raise the awareness of your company’s employees: Train employees according to your company philosophy. In this way, the awareness of those people about the environment has increased, and maybe they can become ambassadors of your company in the future. Communicate with your customers: Make customers aware of the ecological footprint of your company so that they are also interested in environmental activities.
Sustainable products

  • As mentioned in the previous article, use local and organic products. Use organic ingredients as much as possible, such as local vegetables, local eggs, and protein products that are fresher and cheaper. By doing this you will help small producers. If you need to buy foreign products such as coffee, chocolate, tea, cake, etc., use products that have a fair trade mark.
  • Find processed and organic coffee sources and evaluate them economically, socially and environmentally.
  • Avoid excess packaging. Since the use of plastics is banned to reduce plastic waste and protect the oceans, we can use other biodegradable packaging products such as plant-based disposable containers made from corn starch. Buying vegetable containers is an easy and sustainable solution because these containers decompose in nature for up to 6 months under the right conditions (temperature, humidity and the presence of microbes).
  • Use more internet, postal and sea transportation to help reduce air pollution and fuel consumption and significantly reduce your carbon footprint.

Consume less. Reuse, recycle

Using environmentally friendly products such as

  • Use plant-based disposable containers that are not only 100% biodegradable, but also high quality and durable.
  • Use recycled paper, bleach-free paper towels, and toilet paper made from chlorine-free recycled paper.
  • Kitchen and tableware such as coasters can all be made from recycled materials. Recyclable fibers made from beverage bottles and recycled tires can be used in decoration and furniture.
  • Include a discount percentage for people who order coffee in a herbal disposable cup.
  • Reduce the use of plastic water bottles.
  • Use a home water purification system.
  • Reduce your food waste. You can reduce food waste by offering side options on your restaurant menu. This will greatly help to reduce your restaurant expenses and prevent wastage.
  • Use non-chemical cleaning materials that are environmentally friendly.
  • If you have the opportunity and space, grow the vegetables you use in your own garden.
  • Provide waste receptacles for customers to dispose of their wet and dry waste separately. In this way, at the end of the day, you will have deals with dry waste collection centers.

energy saving

  • Use solar panels. Use energy-saving appliances as much as possible and maximize the use of natural light in the workplace.
  • If possible, use smart kitchen appliances.
  • Use energy-efficient light bulbs.
  • Enable sleep settings on laptop monitors and computers so they use less power when you’re not using them.
  • Turn off all devices, printers, faxes, etc. when not in use.
