At Gelato Messina, we’re quite aware of the impact poor sustainability practices can have on the environment so we're changing the way we do things around here, for the better.
For some time now we’ve been talking about the best way to minimise our environmental footprint and make our business more sustainable. We often field enquiries from our customers about the subject - everything from packaging and production, to food wastage and donations. And although it may feel like we are moving a bit slowly sometimes, we have been toiling away in the background and have a few exciting developments to announce. Here’s where we’re at..
You’ll notice all of our gelato cups in store are stamped Truly Eco and are fully recyclable, compostable and biodegradable. They’re made entirely from paper with an aqueous water based coating.read More
You’ll now have the option to take your gelato home in our new fully recyclable cardboard takeaway tub. If you’re travelling for longer and need to use styrofoam, give it a rinse and bring it back to our stores when you’re done – we’ll send it back to the supplier for recycling.read More
We now have our own ‘front of house’ recycling bins in all stores. You can deposit the following items in here and we will recycle them.read More
As a company we have very little wastage. In the event we have a flavour which doesn’t sell too well we often give away to our charity partners such as OzHarvest. If we’ve baked too much of something, we can create new flavours or use it at special events.read More
