community projects

Park St. is an eco-conscious business, with many ongoing projects that support the Melbourne community. From offering discounts on coffees for customers who reduce their waste to collecting contributions for local charities, here are a few projects that are near and dear to us.

composting + recycling

 

 

PARK STREET USES A GAIA COMPRESSOR TO MINIMISE FOOD WASTE THROUGH COMPOSTING. All our food waste is crushed and dehydrated on premise leaving a biomass of only 10-15% of the original nutrient volume. the result is a great soil enhancer that can be purchased for $5/bag at park st. all proceeds are donated to cubbies.
