Sustainable and ecological solutions
La Tricoterie defined his like an event agency. This explain that our halls are not only rent for our clients (that they are professionals or private) : we organise each event from A to Z.
This functionnal mode allows us to propose to our clients only sustainable and ecological solutions and to oppose if needed to some of the choices (for examples if they want to serve products who do not correspondent to the values of La Tricoterie). But, we want to sensibilize our clients, but also our guests and participants who are present during our events.
Bio and local products
We give a particular importance to the products we propose, during the events we organize, as part of our brunch, in the bar during our activities, or in the plates of our take-away service. The most of our our products are biological, seasonal, and provided by our little local producers.
This attention to the origin of our products extend to our drinks : we refuse for example to sell to our clients or to our public commercialised drinks by big multinationals or non-ethical products. Our will is to put ethical products but also to awake the consciousness of our public.
To pursue our reflexion, we have put in place an osmosis who allows us to purify the tap water, and a machine allowed to produce our own sparkling water. We develop also homemade drinks recipes. Those measures allow us to diminish our carbon footprint link to the production and the transportation of the bottles.
On the road of 0 waste !
Our attention doesn’t stop to our product that we sell : it goes also to the cooking tools, especially or unique plastics usage. NWe don’t use single use plastic. We don’t use straw, spoon, stirrers, yellow, cups, to which we prefer metals alternatives, in edible content or ecocops. Our project is to follow this desire to go to the zero waste with tea in bulk, recycling of the coffee marc or cubis. Our Sunday brunch aims also to be zero waste, with in particular sugar and biscuits, with the possibility for our clients to take back their possible rests in a recovery jar.
Goal 0% waste
This war against plastic waste has known a new origin in May 2021, with the start of our zero waste catering, which has the objective to propose an ethic alternative to big plate-formes of take-away. In this frame, we propose some fresh and bio plates, delivered in glass jar in returnable glass. This project also includes the creation of a cannery, in which we propose some artisanal products, designed thanks to our left food overs and by using lactofermentation. The delivery of our plates and conserves is by bike or in relay point, for decreasing our carbon footprint link to our travels. This project has allowed us to avoid 30kg of plastics in two months and to encourage our clients to consume differently.
Finally, our will to reduce our waste extend also to the reduction of the wasting food. In order to limit this, we have put in place a partnership with L’Îlot ASBL, who use our unsold and food rest to offers them to homeless people or people in big great precariousness.
