After a 4 week trial, we’re pushing forward with this – our reusable lunchbox scheme is launching 26th April 2019 at all our markets!
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
The human desire for convenience is creating an excess of unnecessary waste that is infecting our planet
It’s piling up and we’re too busy being busy to notice
Giant mounds of material that the earth can’t absorb and the ocean can’t swallow
Most of us would like to help contribute to keeping our world nice for our kids and their kids…
If only it was easier…
If only we could remember…
We’re fed up with being that guy and have had a word with ourselves, asking:
IF NOT NOW, THEN WHEN?
HOW DO WE BEGIN?
The more we look into the waste issue, the more overwhelming things become. The problem seems so vast and unfathomable so, like all meaty challenges, we’re making a start by tackling it one bite at a time
Eating on the go generates a lot of waste because it is served in single use packaging
Even though we’ve been compostable for ages, it turns out that before it composts it has to be treated at one of very few special plants around the country – so kind of tenuous
Which means all those nice burger boxes going in the bin doesn’t guarantee it breaking down
So we need to try and stem the flow of waste created in the first place: SO WE’RE INVITING OUR CUSTOMERS TO USE YOUR OWN LUNCH BOXES INSTEAD!
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
