Plastic Pollution

We at the Cloverdale Retreat, are disturbed by the issue of plastic pollution. As a result, we discontinued purchasing plastic disposables last year. The remaining stock in hand (mostly food containers), will be gradually phased out being replaced by compostable substitutes. You may have already noticed the introduction of alternative disposable cups. We hope you will bear with us during this transition, as the substitute cups have less insulation against the heat.

We realise that our contribution to tackling this world-wide issue is very small but feel that we all should do what we can to alleviate the problem.
