Ladro x Closed Loop

Ladro sustainable restaurant, closed loop

Ladro is passionate about sustainability and has a zero organic waste policy. We recycle all our food waste, from chicken bones and carrot tops, to uneaten pizza crusts [who leaves the best bit?].
With two large Closed Loop bio-composters located in Fitzroy and Prahran, we recycle all our organic waste into usable garden fertiliser,  eliminating all our food waste from being dumped into landfill.

WANT SOME COMPOST FERTILISER?

Customers can buy a bag [$2] or bucket [$5] anytime when when visiting Ladro or when ordering takeaway via Foodora.
BYO your own bucket and we will fill it up for you. Are you’re involved in a NFP community garden, school or organisation, or know an organisation needing compost, take as much as you like. We’re all about closing the loop at Ladro and giving back to the community. We no longer contribute useless organic waste to landfill. Instead, our waste is turned into useful compost fertiliser to make gardens grow food full of nutrients. Good for us, good for you, awesome for the planet.

FARMERS

Are you a local farmer? We would love to chat about exchanging compost for produce. We can give you cubic meters for goods we can use in the kitchen, herbs, vegetables, or anything you might have growing in your garden. Lets chat.

Find out more via the Stonnington Council where Ladro was used as a best practice case study.

Find us here to pick up some compost or dine at Ladro FITZROY  I  PRAHRAN

WHAT ELSE DO WE DO?

Ladro has incorporated many other sustainable practices into it’s restaurants. Here are a few including:
– Banning straws
– 100%  bio-degradable packaging
– Regular waste audits for all our waste products
– bottle minimisation via tap beverages in kegs; 18 in Prahran, for beer, wine, kombucha and mineral water
– we have many other initiatives on the go too…

BUON ANNO + HAPPY 2016!

2016-LadroHappy New Year! 

We all slept in today…No, not really, but we are opening up a little later than usual due to the joys of using a wood fire oven. When we shut down for long periods, say 9 days like we did this year, the oven can take more than 24 hours to warm up again to over 400 degrees! Hot stuff!

So today we are opening at:
5:30 in FITZROY and 4pm in PRAHRAN.

See you tonight for the first pizza in 2016 ! ! !
