Who needs bins?

Zero. Zilch. Niet. Nada. That’s how much waste Brighton’s Silo restaurant ditches each day.

The restaurant, which claims to be Britain’s first truly zero waste eatery, has just raised almost £50,000 in its oversubscribed offer on the Crowd2fund site.

To celebrate Silo’s success of bringing greener nosh to Brighton and the UK, we’ll offer Good With Money readers who sign up to our newsletter over the next month a discount code for 20 per cent off ALL bills and a free tea or coffee!

The restaurant operates on a zero waste management policy through all parts of the supply chain.

The finance will be used to develop the business and to launch a new coffee system – ‘fair transport’ coffee that has been sailed to the UK by wind.

Douglas McMaster, chef and owner of Silo, says: “Zero waste is a discipline that is gaining fierce momentum. While it’s a buzz word at the moment it will inevitably be the association phrase when we consider a truly sustainable life/work style.”

On the crowdfunding campaign, they say: “Crowdfunding has been transformational in our growth. As a small business doing something different, bank finance isn’t really viable.

Chris Hancock, chief executive of Crowd2Fund adds: “We’re thrilled to have been part of Silo’s growth and help them raise the financing they needed to not only run an innovative business, but to do so via a model that does genuine good to society. We see significant value potential in ethical business.”
