COVID-19 SUSTAINABLE TAKEAWAY PACKAGING GUIDES
March 28, 2020
With the lockdown, many cafes are switching to takeaway and delivery services to stay in business.
We have released two plastic-free takeaway guides for cafes and restaurants who are switching service in response to COVID 19. The guides shows how food outlets can avoid single use plastics, and what reusable and compostable packaging options are available.
Whilst the best option is to stick to reusable foodware, using 100% compostable packaging is a good alternative option.
THE REUSABLES GUIDE:
Addresses the issue of why single-use is not safer
Outlines different reusable options
Gives practical tips for contactless transfer of food
Covers hygienic practices
THE COMPOSTABLES GUIDE:
Provides advice and the best compostable packaging products available
Outlines different options for different foods
Provides tips for reducing waste and costs
Advises on what compostable certifications to ask for
Next year the coronavirus will hopefully be a thing of the past but plastic pollution won't be. It's important that we don't increase plastic waste and litter in the meantime.
