Plastic Bag Plates & Conscientious Cooking


A new restaurant has opened up in Brighton and this one is a little different to any other (that I know of) in Brighton and this is because of  it’s Zero Waste policy;

Silo is designed from back to front, always with the bin in mind. The production of waste has been eliminated by simply choosing to trade directly with farmers,  using re-usable delivery vessels and choosing local ingredients that themselves generated no waste.”

My friend Louise Thilly was asked by the owners to make the plates that were used to serve the food on, this is because they are made from recycled plastic bags!

Here are a few photos I took of an opening evening at the restaurant, the lighting was great in front of the window, but not anywhere else…Another bit of equipment to add to the list I think is a ring flash, oh and tripod!
