The Pelican Fish & Chips, Barnstaple
Owner: Martin James
Actions to date (to remove single-use plastics):
Stopped offering straws a year ago, if asked have paper and cellulose coated straws available.
Don’t use plastic bags – sell (at cost-price) their own reusable “Pelly” insulated-bags to keep takeaway food hot (see photo).
Don’t sell plastic bottled drinks – all glass and tin; with refillable glass water bottles in the restaurant
Use Vegware for takeaway food containers
Only offer wooden forks for takeaway
Some refillable glass condiment bottles and ramekins in the restaurant.
Recycle glass, cardboard, plastics, tins through North Devon Council.
Use refillable soap bottles in the toilets.
Use local suppliers from Devon and Cornwall – there’s a list of them on the table, together with information about the Plastic Free campaign in North Devon.
Suppliers are, in the main, using cardboard and/or re-usable containers.
Single plastic condiment sachets for takeaway. Looking into alternatives but as yet unavailable.
Recycling food waste.
Happy to sign up to Refill Devon scheme.
