Gino's Gelato Goes Green
One of the country's favourite gelaterias, Gino's has gone green by adopting sustainable alternatives for 90 percent of their packaging. Co-founder Jonathan Kirwan was moved to change Gino’s Gelato environmental footprint in recent years, after watching a documentary on plastic waste in the oceans and how it is affecting beaches in Southern Asia. After tackling the recycling in his own home, Jonathan realised he needed to tackle the issue within the business. The company, which also uses locally sourced organic milk, has committed to being 100 percent sustainable by 2020. For more information or to find your local Gino's outlet, click here.
