There are many benefits to using eco-friendly products, particularly in a takeaway food business. For example, by being more conscious about the packaging they use, such as using packaging that is made from plant-based materials, takeaway food businesses can reduce their carbon footprint.
Additionally, by using recyclable, compostable, and reusable products, and implementing a greener way of living for themselves as well as their customers, businesses will save money, since they’ll be reducing waste and replacing products fewer times.
More and more people are choosing to shop for eco-friendly products, which means that a takeaway food business that demonstrates responsibility for its environment is likely to see its customer base grow.
There are also ways that takeaway businesses can reduce food waste, which will, again, help to save money and improve sustainability.
If you’re a takeaway food business owner looking to reduce your carbon footprint and improve sustainability, then consider the eco-friendly packaging below.
1) Corrugated Cardboard Takeaway Tray Box
Albiz Packaging offers a Corrugated Cardboard Takeaway Tray Box that is made from recyclable material.
Additionally, because it’s made from a strong material, it is very durable, which means it can be reused multiple times or even repurposed.
Repurposing is the process of reusing a product but not for its original purpose.
For example, this corrugated cardboard tray box could be repurposed as a storage box, a display box, or even a removal box.
Alternatively, cardboard can easily be composted, particularly when it is corrugated, which makes this tray box a good choice for any takeaway business seeking packaging that they can efficiently dispose of.
It is also worth mentioning that any plain cardboard, or coloured cardboard that is matte, can be composted as long as it is broken down beforehand.
By reusing, repurposing, or composting packaging, you can prevent it from going to landfill or incineration plants.
The rubbish that is sent to landfills breaks down at a very slow rate. During the breaking down process, harmful chemicals are produced, which negatively affect soil and groundwater.
Incineration plants are no better than landfills. The rubbish that is sent to incineration plants releases harmful chemicals that can cause many health problems, such as lung disease, heart disease, and cancer.
So, landfill or incineration plants should be the last resort, and greener methods should be sought, such as recycling or composting.
2) Square Takeaway Salad Container
This Square Takeaway Salad Container is perfect for reusing and repurposing due to it being made from high-quality PET and having a tight-fitting hinged lid.
PET is one of the greener plastics since it does not contain a particular type of industrial chemical that is known to cause health issues.
This container is leakproof, which makes it perfect for salads or pasta, and its crystal-clear design allows customers to admire their food.
Once the container has been used for its original purpose, but it can be repurposed or recycled.
