Our 4 Simple Steps to a Greener Future
Takeaway Packaging - Ecoware

We are very aware of the overwhelming need to use and produce sustainable and environmentally friendly food packaging. Here’s our top 4 solutions to environmentally friendly packaging.

BAGS – SWITCH TO PAPER & PLA

SOS Grab Bag

Paper bags – Just as handy as plastic bags, only these bags are fully recyclable! Available in a range of styles and sizes, we can even brand them with vegetable based inks.

COFFEE CUPS – COMPOSTABLE & RECYCLABLE

Compostable Cup - Cobbs Farm

PLA Cups – The compostable cup is without doubt the perfect choice for environmentally conscious brands. Compostable paper coffee cups can be manufactured in either single or double wall and are lined with PLA, meaning that they are completely compostable/recyclable.

It is often thought that standard paper coffee cups can be recycled, but due to their PE lining, this is not the case, in fact they can only be recycled by specialized facilities.

STRAWS – PLA IS BEST

Ecoware - Takeaway Packaging

Paper Straws – Fully compostable & biodegradable, these straws can be branded with your artwork, and will be made in your desired sizes, colours and quantity. We print paper straws with food safe vegetable inks.

Curly Straws – Our Curly Straws are reusable and can incorporate a clip-on accessory for branding purposes, these are ideal for use with children as they can collect the clip-ons and take the straws home.

PLA Straws – PLA, short for ‘Polylactic Acid’ is made from renewable resources, such as corn starch & sugar cane. These straws are fully biodegradable and have the appearance of plastic.

RESTRICTION IS THE BEST POLICY – KNOW YOUR LIMITS

Follow in the footsteps of major chains like Wetherspoons and implement a policy on your packaging! This pub chain has introduced a new policy to cut down plastic straw usage, they will now only give straws out if requested. It’s an excellent idea!

Not only will this cut down overall usage by a major chunk – it will also save you a few pennies!

Environmental consultants Eunomia have estimated that leading supermarket chains are a major contributor to this issue – producing more than 800,000 tonnes each year! Let’s do something about it. #TakeawayPackagingForChange

Our Environmental Statement
Takeaway Packaging
#TAKEAWAYPACKAGINGFORCHANGE

Takeaway Packaging recognises that it has a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. Our group of companies are committed to reducing our environmental impact and are continually improving our environmental performance as an integral part of our strategy and operating methods.

Our approach to takeaway packaging is changing . . .

Over the last few years, it has become more apparent that we need to consider and find ways of ensuring that the disposable ‘one use’ packaging we supply is more environmentally friendly. There are many misconceptions, due to the way packaging is often marked, that an item is recyclable, when in fact, it needs to be sent to a specialist facility.

Takeaway Packaging actively encourage customers to change their standard food packaging by offering alternatives that are recyclable, compostable or biodegradable.

We endeavour to

• Always offer our customers an alternative, environmentally friendly product
• Inform our customers of new developments and options available
• Use materials from sustainable sources

By 2020, we aim to convert all our existing customers to biodegradable and compostable food and drink packaging. We’d also like to take the opportunity to invite anyone thinking about switching to compostable products to get in touch with us for a full consultation.
