Any product has to be made somehow, therefore, by definition, the terms 'Planet-friendly', 'Eco-friendly', or 'Zero-Waste', are, in my opinion, misleading. Whether the by-product is human labour, or post-use recycling/waste, there is still an impact on the planet, and its resources.
The reason I chose to only stock 'natural' wines, that is to say, wines made with absolute respect for the earth, specifically the soil system, is that this is one way to reduce the strain on the earth. It is also the reason why I aim to use local and/or organic products as much as possible, good farming practices also help to fix carbon in the soil, it's a double whammy!
I use Irish products as much as I can on my signature amazing grazing and cheeseboards, and also serve small tapas-style plates of vegan and vegetarian food. I have (as far as I know) Ireland's first Avocado-free, Palm-Oil-free, GMO-free, salmon-free menu, and aim to stock the world's most environmentally sensitive (bird-friendly) coffee, as well as being one of the first supporters of local roasting expert, Bean West.
Most of the charcuterie is local, such as McKeough's Connemara air-dried ham, as well as the cheeses, like Danny Dozio's Ella or his delicious soft cheeses, some made specifically for me. I also use some very high-end products from Greece and Italy, such as delicious organic olives, antipasti or candied cherries.
