At Auberge des Gallant, one of our most important unifying values is to be eco-friendly and to support this value through action. After abolishing plastic bottles and straws, making weekly donations of excess food to a food bank, and reducing our garbage by more than 1 tonne in 6 months, we were looking for another initiative to embrace. Because so many of our customers enjoy watching the birds at our feeders, Café Le Nichoir was a true coup de cœur!
Café Le Nichoir certified Bird Friendly coffee is now the only coffee we serve in our restaurant. We also make it available for our guests to purchase and take home as a souvenir. Le Nichoir has since become a part of our family: Our employees decided to continue to support Le Nichoir with a donation for the woodpecker aviary in 2018, and in 2019, we donated some greatly needed funds to hire a summer educator. Recently, I was surprised to receive a letter from a customer who had visited the Nichoir thanking us for our support. She was impressed to see that Auberge des Gallant was involved in Le Nichoir’s fabulous work.
We are proud to be a partner to Le Nichoir. The way we see it, if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.
