Our Sustainable Practices


"Be what you want the world to be" - Gandi

Fishes Cafe is committed to the highest standards of Sustainability best practice. We are passionate about our Fish & Chips and most of all about Straddie!

To that end we:

  • Recycle our used cooking oil by giving it to one of our Fishermen suppliers who manufactures bio-diesel to run his boat and landcruiser to deliver fish. This is full circle recyling.
  • We aim to recycle our bio-dynamic waste to compost which will then be used to fertilise the Point Lookout Community garden.
  • We are negotiating with the Redland City Council to provide a commercial recycling of our PET, cardbroard and glass bottles.
  • While we wait for the Council, we recycle all our cardboard in our van & transport it to the recycling centre at the local tip. Neighbouring businesses also use this facility to recycle cardboard.
  • We have installed a Bottle-Cycler to recycle our glass products - other businesses and guests to the island are encouraged to use this facility.
  • We source as much produce as possible from local business suppliers, thus reducing "Food Miles" and contributing to the local Stradbroke Island economy - Straddie Butcher, Straddie Bakery, Island Fruit Barn, Rufus King Seafoods - between them they employ over 50 Straddie people!
  • We employ a locally grown Apprentice Chef and 3 other employees are completing Certificate III in Hospitality Training.
  • We supply only recycled packaging for our takeaway meals.
  • We are installing a "heat defuser" to capture the heat produced by our coolroom motor and using it to heat our hotwater prior to going into the hot water system.
  • We have installed low flow taps to all our sinks and water devices.
  • Replacing halogen light bulbs with low wattage alternatives.
  • We have installed the latest technlogy refridgeration appliances.
  • We Sponsor Events and Community Groups on Straddie with cash and services.
  • Encourage bicycle riding around Point Lookout.
