Sustainable water

In house caterer uses ‘Thirsty Work’, a water dispenser that cuts the waste and emissions that come with the manufacturing, transporting, and disposing of single use bottles.

Passive infrared (PIR) sensors for taps are used throughout the building to control the flow of a pre-set amount of water into the tap.

No single use plastics

Company of Cooks continues to improve their policies for no single use plastic and do not use plastic straws, pipettes for canapés or single use plastic bottles for serving water.

Pura still and sparkling water is served at events in reusable, glass water bottles which are cleaned onsite.

We partnered with Churchill Group after being impressed with their approach to sustainability and their drive for all water based, tablet cleaning products and their objectives to have zero plastic waste.
