Recently I read about Silo, a UK restaurant based in Brighton that won a sustainable award. So on a recent trip to the UK I took the opportunity to arrange visit and ask some questions. They were happy to show me what they were up to. The interior is all upcycled - done to save money more than anything. It has that industrial look - timber,steel.
Their approach to reducing their carbon footprint comes by considering how food was produced before industrialization. So what does this mean in practice ?
In this way they were able to drastically reduce packaging which was important in their goal to be zero-waste.
For the future they are looking at ways to reduce their energy and water consumption. I noticed they were cooking on induction so i guess they are trying to avoid the use of fossil fuels in house. I enjoyed my short visit - i could have spent longer to be honest but i am grateful they were able to take some time out. I plan on visiting the GrainStore in London for my next post.
