Sustainable Food Service at The Mayflower Inn

301953_182009095204010_5667849_n

OMG-
No napkins,
no straws,
no disposables?
What kind of a cafe is this?

FYI—
This is the way of things to come…
we are practicing NOW what will be
in the NEAR Future
-a legal and moral requirement
for all food outlets to save the planet.

Hotel Food Service is usually
associated with food waste and trash.
Tissue paper, Styrofoam,
and a host of plastic throwaways:
straws, plastic cups, plastic bottles
fill the trash bins of hotels everyday.

At The Mayflower Inn,
we have deliberately set up
our food service to minimize,
if not eliminate
throwaway packaging,
and reduce food waste
to practically zero.

If any,
food waste can be handled
by our in house bio-recyclers:
turtles, fish & effective microbes.
We are proud of this.

Our food service
may seem old-fashioned
with breakable glasses, ceramic plates,
cloth napkins, ‘real’ cutlery
-but these are all meant
to make our service sustainable.

Buffet service
is another generator
of wasted food for most hotels.
Thus, to steer away
from this wasteful practice,
we at The Mayflower Inn
have adapted a special limited service menu.
We keep our menu simple
and limited
because our location already affords you
easy access to unlimited dining options.
Thus it already seems redundant
to offer you an expanded menu.

When in Rome, do as the Romans do…
so at The Mayflower Inn,
we only offer you local food
so while you’re in Cebu,
you can dine like a Cebuano!!!

We know that once understood,
our practices will no longer be frowned upon
as out of date,
but rather welcomed
and appreciated
as ‘the’ wise choice
to be earth friendly.
