Our environment, our communities, our choice…
Here at Diddy Diners, we believe that sustainability is about looking after both our environment and our communities. We pledge to always do our best to uphold high levels of social and business integrity by regularly reviewing our practices and communicating with others to find out how we can improve further.
As a business we are passionate about doing our bit to look after the world in which we live. Below you will find some of the ways in which we are working to minimise our impact but if you have other ideas or suggestions please do not hesitate to get in touch. If there is a viable way for use to go further you can be sure we want to know.
All Diddy Diners Delivered kits are free from plastic.
Instead we use:
Fully recyclable cardboard and paper sourced from sustainable forests.
Fully compostable & biodegradable food bags made from cellulose, derived from sustainable wood pulp.
Fully compostable portion pots made from plant based PLA, a renewable alternative to plastic.
Compostable & biodegradable stickers – even the adhesive fits into this category.
Reusable/recyclable glass & metals where absolutely necessary.
We use suppliers with sound eco-credentials
Our printing company has been recognised as the UK’s most sustainable printing company, winning four major environmental awards including UK “Environmental Company of the Year” at the PrintWeek Awards 2019 and the “Green Company of the Year” at the 2019 national Print, Design and Marketing Awards.
Our packaging company’s whole mission is to find alternatives to single use plastics. Their hard work was recognised when they became finalists for the Green Award at the SME National Business Awards.
We work with independent, local suppliers wherever possible
We strive to support independent businesses such as our local greengrocers to source our fruit & vegetables that then get lovingly sent on to our customers.
We build strong, positive relationships with everyone that is involved in our supply chain – for us this is essential.
We support The Trussell Trust & its network of foodbanks
50p from every Diddy Diners Kit sold is donated to this essential organisation. Click on the ‘foodbank’ tab at the top of this page to find out more.
