OUR GREEN JOURNEY

At Birdz. we are conscious of the influences that our business strategy can have on the world around us, our family and friends. We realise that making considered choices can have a significant environmental impact.
We are committed to taking the following steps on our journey to a greener future: 

.

100% of the Birdz. menu is based on fresh, free-range and organic produce. We believe that organic farming practices reduce the environmental impact of agriculture practices and comes with a sustainable benefit of nutritional and toxicological value.

.

Studies have shown that plant-based sources of nutrition use far less natural resources and generate lower carbon emissions. In fact, according to research, animal agriculture produces close to half of all greenhouse gas emissions. Changing our diet by reducing meat consumption and increasing fresh produce and plant-based foods could have a long-term significant environmental impact.

.

We take care to work with farmers who are doing the right thing, and we source locally where possible. Supporting local farmers means that food products travel much shorter distances which lowers the carbon footprint. Buying from smaller, local farms can also have positive environmental impacts as small farms tend to use less pesticides, rebuild crop and insect diversity and enrich the soil.

.

Discarded food ends up in landfills and through decomposition produces large amounts of the powerful greenhouse gas methane. By keeping food wastage at a minimum we can also reduce our carbon footprint. We use methods to minimise food wastage.

.

Birdz. has an average food wastage of less than 1% – considerably lower than food industry standards of more than 10%. We use gas powered rotisseries which is more efficient as the heat is in direct contact with the food, decreasing the amount of electricity needed to prepare meals.

.

All of our takeaway packaging have been designed to be 100% recyclable.
