Limiting our impact...
At Kinfolk, we're all about maximising impact - except when it comes to the environment. As a social enterprise, our focus is on localising our resource needs and finding ways to make them regenerative, sustainable and economical. This is expressed in our seasonal, low food-mile menus, our biodegradable packaging and low carbon footprint venues. The small decisions we make as a business have an aggregate effect on not only our operations, but what communities expect from local businesses.
Waste Minimisation + Management
All of our take-away packaging is biodegradable and it, along with our coffee grounds and food scraps are collected and commercially composted by Waste Ninja. Our takeaway coffee cups are regular compostable - thanks to I Am Not Paper.
For fresh produce, Sibling overwhelming favours producers and suppliers based in Victoria. Our fruit and vegetables come from Greenlands and we've recently negotiated a drastic reduction in the amount packaging used in our deliveries (opting for a rotation of reusable crates). Our free range eggs come from Burd Eggs and our dairy from Schulz Organic Dairy who provide their milk in reusable kegs that plug right into our Barista station.
Our coffee also comes from Melbourne-based roasters (Small Batch & Prologue) who source directly from individual producers around the world.
