Environmental Policy

At PachaMama, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and acting in an environmentally conscious way. We have implemented many procedures to ensure our eco-business operates in a sustainable and positive way for both our customers and for the environment. Some of these procedures are listed below. We are constantly updating and improving our processes and will update this policy as applicable.

  • Composting of food scraps
  • Reuse and recycling of food packaging
  • Use of biodegradable packaging at market stalls
  • Use of vintage tableware, cutlery and glassware at weddings and events

  • Lowering dependence on vehicles by working remotely and travelling only when necessary
  • Minimising our use of paper by working electronically where possible
  • Minimising our use of single use plastic
  • Offering and promoting vegan and vegetarian catering options, both for our customers’ dietary choices and because of our ethical and environmental sustainability goals
