Cirque du Soil presents Piece of Cake: Circular Hospitality Best Practice Video Series

Future Food Shapers of Australia

Introducing our teaser for Cirque du Soil’s Circular Hospitality best Practice Guide, brought to life in a series of video short reels, some of our Victorian circular hospitality champions who are out there on the ground making change happen.

These short reels were conceived as part of the best practice guide for small food businesses to inspire, use, and adopt new circular practices.

Our local cafes, restaurants, pubs, who trade on Australian high streets, play a big part of our local food systems in creating places where we come together to build community.

Our goal is to be able to keep working on expanding the Victorian first Circular Hospitality Best Practice Guide to showcase more circular stories and other ways to take climate action – we’d love to do more!

We hope with this, you find your mottainai.

This video reel series was made possible by Bank Australia, Good & Proper & Near Far Productions.

Our soft plastics program is available in Oct 2022.

Do something drastic & cut the plastic. Single-use plastic food packaging is a major contributor to the global solid waste problem. Although the food industry is developing strategies to reduce single-use plastic packaging, we need to better understand consumer awareness and attitudes about the issue.

When you toss a plastic bottle into your recycling bin, there’s no guarantee it actually gets recycled. In fact, odds are, it doesn’t. 

This is one of our key priority streams, where by using the same containers, in the same form, over and over again – it eases demand for virgin materials, reduces energy needed to spit out thousands of new plastic bottles or cardboard boxes, and prevents heaps of trash from ending up in landfills or oceans.

They’re bulky, large in size and consumes large amounts of space.

We use paper and cardboard in so much packaging and stacks of it still ends up in landfill, resulting in stacks of methane production, a major greenhouse gas.

When when you recycle cardboard waste and keep it free of oil and contamination, you end up saving ample amounts of water and energy and minimise trees being chopped down to get virgin material.

Cigarette butts are the world’s most littered plastic item, with around 7 billion dropped in Australia every year. In partnership with Fungi Solutions, CigCycle collected cigarette butts will undergo a Myco-Remediation program (mushrooms, FYI) at their Thornbury myco-facility for research and development for new circular materials.
