A belated happy new year to you all, it has been great catching up with you after the break and getting back in to the rhythm of things! We have been busy putting our New Year’s resolutions in to practice, so we thought we’d share our progress so far…
1. Blog more…. Hello :-)
2. Reduce our environmental impact. I’m sure this has been on many of your lists this year, and so we hope that in making a greater effort, we can help you to do the same! This is a big one, so here are 5 examples of what we’re doing to achieve this:
We are bringing in triple bins for the kitchen. We already separate general waste, food waste and mixed recycling behind the bar, and so by doing the same in our kitchen we hope to reduce our non-recycled waste substantially.
We have been busy designing our own little reusable coffee cups and tote bags, they will be on sale at Oliver’s from February!
We will also be simplifying the menu as of February, which will help us to reduce food waste and energy.
Less meat, more veg… with our new menu we will be increasing our offering of vegetarian and vegan options for those wishing to decrease their meat/dairy intake… (don’t worry, the bacon isn’t going anywhere!)
Goodbye plastic straws…. I’m sure many of you have seen this video which has prompted us to stop stocking plastic straws completely. We know this may be inconvenient for those with little ones so we are looking for a more environmentally-friendly alternative to replace them!
3. To continue to improve our service & speed! It’s been a very busy year for us at Oliver’s which is fantastic and we are so grateful to all of our customers, but with this new pace we face new challenges, and we are determined to work harder to make sure you always have a great experience.
4. To get some great classes up and running from Oliver’s – we’re planning yoga, book clubs and life drawing to name a few. So keep an eye out!
So there are our resolutions… and please feel free to keep us in check if we’re slacking ;-) we hope 2018 is a great year for you!
