Sustainability at Eckerts Wirtshaus
Because it is good and does you good!
Sustainability is an important goal for us. We have a lot planned and have already achieved a lot: starting with the interior design of Eckerts, using solid oak wood from the Steigerwald in connection with limestone from the Franconian Jura, to sustainable energy generation from the underground hydroelectric power plant directly below us, to the selection of food and drinks , which mainly come from local and regional partners and suppliers.
Green electricity from the Regnitz
While you are sitting on our bridge terrace, sustainable energy is generated at your feet around the clock. Find out more about the underground hydroelectric power plant here.
Small steps for more sustainability
We weigh laundry and washing powder more precisely, have been gradually switching to LED lighting since 2016, have largely dispensed with disposable packaging at the table, have been brewing our own beer since 2021 with raw materials exclusively from organic farming, collect crown caps and recycle them (the proceeds from this goes to the German Youth Cancer Research).
The waste fat that accumulates in the kitchen is also 100% reused by a partner who specializes in this.
