Our expenses keep increasing, mainly because we increased the number of machines. But we try our best to reduce costs where we can. Our van runs on LPG (“autogas”), which safes us about 30% of the expenses we would have for regular fuel.
With the help of our friends from Watershed, we got a concrete base for a gas tank, which got delivered some days ago. It will be installed in the coming days. Buying gas in bulk (instead of small gas bottles which last for 2-3 days) will reduce our gas expenses by about 60%. And it requires less deliveries (every 2-3 months), thus less logistics, and less traffic.
The fantastic kitchen team at OHF provides the warm lunches 5 days a week, which we pick up in reusable glass containers.
