Clink Restaurant & Bar in Sumner is a great destination for your function. With a range of menus to choose from, an extensive beverage list and a fantastic sheltered, sunny courtyard, heading out to Sumner this year for your get together is an excellent choice!

Why not throw in a little team building and education. We have some great masterclasses available to choose from:

‘Gin is in’ // ‘The Rum Diaries’ // “Whiskies of the World’ // ‘War of the Roses” // ‘Pinotphiles’ // ‘Craft Beer 101/202/303’ – just to name a few.

Looking after our environment!

Every little bit helps and we are on a mission to make Clink even more environmentally friendly in 2018.

We started last year making sure all our takeaway coffee cups and lids were compostable and moved on to straws, which at first we promoted with “refuse the straw” and didn’t provide any unless requested,  but realized that occasionally people just want a straw. Enter Innocent Packaging, who have a great selection of plant based compostable single use items in their catalogue. We are hoping they will add cocktail straws to their line up this year! We have reduced our straw usage by 75% though whilst on our mission and reckon this year we can grow this to 100%.

Cleaning products were a biggy for us as we use a lot of various chemicals in keeping Clink hygienic. We decided it was time to look at alternatives and have now invested in ENJO microfibers for most our cleaning. We are very happy with the results and have saved some big dollars on chemicals and reduced a lot of plastic waste also. We still have some work to do to be completely free and are looking at alternatives for our dishwasher and glass washer but the bathrooms, kitchen, floors and windows are all now chemical free.

Next steps are – composting our food waste – finding compostable bin liners for our large bins – training all our staff in taking care of the microfibers and how to use – ditching starched linen for compostable but high quality paper – introducing ENJO into the bar. We will keep you all updated with our progress!

We live in a beautiful seaside environment and both Rob and myself are passionate about the ocean. We hope to see more people going plastic and bottle free this year and would love more than anything to see Sumner plastic free! So next time you get a takeaway coffee or dinner ask if they are using compostable containers. If we all ask we just might make a difference and establishments will look at other alternatives. We are so lucky to have fabulous companies like Innocent Packaging and ENJO making this journey easier and if it costs a little more to make this happen consider it a donation for our oceans and our planet!
