Did you know plastic straws make up the top ten items picked up on beach cleanups? In fact, enough plastic straws are produced annually to fill over 46,000 full sized buses!
Here at Bib & Tucker, we are passionate about the environment, particularly when it comes to our oceans & marine life. So with us being in such close proximity to the lovely Leighton Beach, we’ve decided its about time we got rid of plastic straws!
From now on, when you dine at Bib, you’ll be drinking out of biodegradable straws. Made from compostable, eco-friendly material, they are the safest straws available for your family and for the environment.
Bib & Tucker are proud to have supported the fantastic local community volunteer group, Coastcare, providing their 30 plus volunteers and new star ambassadors from the Fremantle Football Club with free coffees while they planted trees and collected litter around Leighton Beach, whilst also filming their new campaign video.
Our coastline has some of Australia’s most popular beaches which are subject to lots of human (and canine!) traffic, particularly in the summer months. Coastcare assists by identifying local marine and coastal problems then working to protect and rehabilitate the fragile coastal areas and achieve practical, sustainable solutions for our environment.
Young and old, volunteers for Coastcare tackle problems such as dune erosion, loss of native coastal plants and animals, stormwater pollution, weeds and control of human access to sensitive and vulnerable areas.
If you would like to learn more about the work that Coastcare is doing (or even better – if you would like to get involved !) then please take a look at their website.

Prefer your locally sourced produce with a side-serve of Indian Ocean? How about a few hours aboard a luxury cruiser with one of Western Australia’s culinary superstars?
At this year’s Gourmet Escape, Bib’s very own star chef, Scott Bridger, got the opportunity to treat a select few to a fresher-than-fresh feast of canapes aboard the Kimberley Quest II, a custom-built 25 metre vessel offering comfort and style, all thanks to Audi Centre Perth.
The pristine waters of Geographe Bay was the location as those on board got to sample delectable dishes accompanied by premium Margaret River wines whilst they leisurely cruised the southern coastline.
A champion of local ingredients, Scott has been a long-time fan of the South-West and its produce, utilising it in a number of our delicious dishes here at Bib:
“We have to come down here to get produce, it’s all grown in this region. A lot of the fruit and vegetables are grown down here, because it’s got more rainfall than we do in Perth. The marron is amazing. The truffles in Manjimup. I could sit here all day! We use about 80 per cent WA produce in the restaurant and a lot of it comes from the South West.”
It’s practices likes these, that are reflective of our ongoing efforts at the restaurant to continually support local WA suppliers and place sustainability back on the menu.

If you’re a city slicker with a green thumb who has ever wondered how to grow and forage your own food, be sure to click through to 9Kitchen for tips on how to do just that from our executive chef Scott Bridger.
A big fan of fresh produce grown on his front door step, Scott caught up with fellow chef James Viles to share advice on how to eat local without breaking the bank.
“The world needs to slow down a bit and get itself back on track with food and how we eat, eating something that has not travelled from the other side of the earth has so many more benefits,” Scott told 9Kitchen.
