We at Avenue Bread have been thinking about what growth will look like in 2020. With a focus on environmental and social responsibility, here are Avenue’s four 2020 New Year’s resolutions!
- Creating a meaningful relationship with suppliers
This means knowing where our food is coming from and how it is being brought to your plate!
- Reducing our carbon footprint
The climate crisis is one of the most pressing environmental issues of our time. Avenue Bread is going to spend 2020 assessing how we can reduce carbon emissions from our close to home operations, as well as land use changes in our supply chain.
- Cutting back single use plastic packaging.
Using less plastic has been a focus of Avenue Bread’s environmental efforts for over a decade. In the next year we are going to focus on reducing plastic waste in the packaging of our products, as well as plastic bottles in cafes.
- Recycled paper products.
Paper is a big part of doing business, but producing paper takes a significant toll on the environment. Deforestation contributes to climate change and habitat loss. In 2020 we want to use 100% recycled paper products in Avenue Bread cafes!
