Environmental sustainability is something we take very seriously at Tayybeh. That’s why we’re actively working towards being more eco-friendly by adopting zero waste principles.
We are eager to do our part towards achieving the goals of sustainable development keep reading to find out how we’re partnering with local businesses to be more earth friendly!
Making Tayybeh Eco Friendly
A commitment to being eco-friendly means that we are aware of the sustainable development goals. This is a set of17 goals set forth by the United Nations to guide countries in achieving sustainable development. They cover everything from alleviating poverty and promoting gender equality to responsible consumption and production and acting on climate change. While Tayybeh is a 5-year social enterprise that has worked tirelessly to provide some of the vulnerable in society with a source of income and social mobility, we are determined more than ever to expand our work to cover environmental practises as well.
As a small business in the food industry, learning how to reduce carbon footprint and using eco-friendly packaging is at the core of our efforts to be more sustainable.
What We’re Doing to Reduce our Carbon Footprint
We are committed to environmental sustainability, so one of the questions we ask ourselves is how to reduce carbon footprint?
One way we minimize our carbon footprint is to locally source everything we can from BC. For example, most of our meat is sourced from local BC growers and is certified Halal. This lowers the amount of fuel used and food miles travelled by our ingredients so that our meals are more earth friendly.
The same is true of the fresh vegetables we use to create our delicious Syrian meals! Whether it’s our scrumptious salads, irresistible appies, mouth-watering mains, or delectable desserts, most of the ingredients that make these delicacies possible are grown or produced locally in beautiful British Columbia!
Another step we’re taking is to use as many recyclable materials as possible to keep our waste generation to an absolute minimum. This means avoiding, as best we can, plastic and using biodegradable packaging.
Our Commitment to Eco Friendly Packaging and Zero Waste production
There has been increased demand for eco-friendly packaging across Canada, and we’re doing what we can to provide sustainable options to our customers. We are very excited to be partnering with a variety of earth-friendly businesses to make it easier for you to try delicious Syrian food with zero waste packaging.
