Kind. to OUR EARTH
We want to have a minimal impact on our Earth
and are constantly looking for innovative, sustainable and ethical ways to do this.
We aim to encourage Morningside in sustainable practices in any way we can — to ensure our sourcing, usage and disposal of product and resources are done thoughtfully and sustainably, to encourage, educate and resource.
If you have any great ideas or are a neighbour who is particularly passionate about sustainability, let us know!
KIND strives to use ingredients that are kind to our Earth; ingredients that are low on food mileage, water usage and have minimal environmental impact. Our food is mainly plant based and organic. The small amount of animal product we use is all free range.
We compost 80% of the non-recyclable waste we produce. We Compost, Innocent Packaging and Jad Cup are working alongside us to achieve this. If you do use a take away cup, please bring it back and dispose of it in our composting bin!
Our food philosophy
Our food philosophy is summed up by journalist and food writer Michael Pollan’s mantra to: “Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.”
One of the key elements of Michael Pollan’s philosophy of food is that we are much better off eating whole fresh foods than processed food products. We love how this philosophy speaks to the impact we can have on ourselves and our environment just by choosing what we eat.
“Imagine if we had a food system that actually produced wholesome food. Imagine if it produced that food in a way that restored the land. Imagine if we could eat every meal knowing these few simple things: What it is we’re eating. Where it came from. How it found its way to our table. And what it really cost. If that was the reality, then every meal would have the potential to be a perfect meal…
Imagine it: Every meal would connect us to the joy of living and the wonder of nature. Every meal would be like saying grace.”
