Our Environment

Sustainability

Here are some of the measures we are taking towards sustainable, and responsible operation of our business.

  • Eco-cups
    Our take-away cups are; compostable, and biodegradable. This includes the bio plastic lids, these are made from corn starch, meaning they will break down.

  • Paper packaging
    All of our packaging is either paper, cardboard, or bio-plastics.

  • Wooden biodegradable cutlery
    Our take-away cutlery is made out of biodegradable wood.

  • Drinking straws
    At present we use a bio plastic straw, these are made from corn starch, and are completely biodegradable. We are however moving to paper straws at present.

  • Composting
    Our kitchen waste gets composted on-site. This reduces the amount of compostable material going into our waste bins. We then use the compost on the gardens at the tea rooms.

Future projects

We are always looking at ways we can reduce our carbon footprint.

Stay tuned for updates as we travel along this journey to become carbon-negative.

 

Our sensitive location

Top of the Range is located at the summit of Mount Macedon, right in the middle of Macedon Regional Park.

The park is 2,500 hectares of natural parkland, and bush, full of native flora, and fauna.

Our unique location in the park puts us in the position (and responsibility) to help protect our environment.

We have several meaures in place to make sure that the park is in a better condition than the day before.

Our farm

Did you know that we also have a 100 acre, completely off-grid farm?

This amazing place is the start of our plans to be an almost completely self-reliable, and sustainable business.

By growing our own produce we are then in full control of how it is grown, and transported. Further strengthening our sustainabilty credentials.
