Not Simply a Health Food café
Genesis in the Hills is a living example of a sustainable way of life. From the ground up, Genesis is designed with mindful environmental awareness. Setting a positive example for sustainable practice is central to our ethos and one that we hope is adopted by more venues in the industry.
In the Kitchen...
We minimize waste via plastic policies and composting, using environmentally certified cleaning products, eco lighting, recycled paper products and water-wise appliances throughout the venue. Drinks are served with reusable stainless steel straws and serve our takeaway food in biodegradable packaging. To learn more about our practices and how you can make sustainable changes in your own home, subscribe to our newsletter.
Giving Back to the Community
Nothing goes to waste at Genesis in the Hills. In cooperation with our coffee supplier Toro Black, we provide our used ground coffee to local farmers to use as an organic fertilizer, continuing the cycle of sustainability.
We Use Local, Organic and Ethically Sourced Products Where Possible
Designing our menu seasonally to minimize food miles. Developing relationships with our suppliers that mutually support our environmental efforts is also hugely important to our success as an environmentally conscious venue.
We Choose Plant-Based Cuisine
In line with the latest environmental research by the UN, to reduce the environmental impact of consuming animal products. This change, above all else produces the most immediate turnaround on carbon emissions, water consumption, pollution and land degradation. By choosing plant-based cuisine we vote with our feet against cruel and unethical farming practices.
Current Sustainability Projects
We’re working to integrate farming practices to supplement our produce cycle and run our venue entirely on solar and renewable energy sources.
Everything we do here at Genesis in the Hills considers the greater picture. If you’re a venue or an individual with queries about our sustainability practices, we’d love to hear from you.
