I have apartment in Side. I use your site to get a feel of Turkey when I am in the UK. There is nothing like your site in Side.

Eco Kalkan Project 2018This article lists all restaurants, cafes and bars taking part in the “We Support Eco Kalkan” (WSEK) project in 2018.  Last updated 15th May 2018

Not every business owner was around in Kalkan over recent weeks and months as we tried to recruit participants.  We contacted as many as we could and invited them to sign up: 90 have signed up.  That's the vast majority of eating and drinking places in Kalkan.

They understand what we are trying to achieve and are on board.  Those who have given their commitment are listed below.

If a restaurant, cafe or bar is not on the list it could be because they prefer not to take part or did not get back to us, or it may be because we have not yet had a chance to talk to them.  It's quite a big job getting round every eating place in Kalkan!  We are happy to add more restaurants, cafes and bars to this list.

The project also has a Turkish name: “Çevre Dostu Kalkan Girişimini Destekliyoruz” (ÇDKGD) which translates as “We support the Environment Friendly Kalkan Initiative”.  You may see references around town to both the English and Turkish names.

N.B. At the moment we have not completed the standards that each business has signed up to.  These details will be added in due course.  Standards S1, S2 & S3 are compulsory for all.

Notes about these standards
These standards were developed in consultation with a number of Kalkan businesses.  The aim is to maximise participation by making the certificate achievable for all restaurants, cafes and bars. 

It could be said that some standards don’t go far enough however we would rather get the majority of businesses on board and working towards eco-friendly practices.  Once on the journey we believe they will want to continue and go further.  We aim to get most people on board and then work with them to raise the bar higher in subsequent years.

If you find a business displaying the WSEK certificate and they are not on this list please let us know: Contact KTLN

If you wish to provide feedback about a participating business specifically in relation to how they are doing in keeping to the WSEK principles, please click here to send us your feedback.

Note that feedback can be positive or negative.  Where businesses may be falling short on their commitments we will take this up with them in person.  Those businesses that are found to be consistently going the extra mile will be recognised at the end of the season.

And finally, a request to all restaurant, cafe and bar customers: when you are ordering your drinks and meals please can you make a point this year of saying that you don't want any plastic.
