Eliminate unnecessary packaging.
Challenge your team to reduce and eliminate packaging where possible.
Implement a company-wide protocol and work with delivery platforms so the default for takeaway orders is to give no unnecessary sauces or condiments. Only offer additional items upon request.
Zested meal prep service has removed packaging for their herbs, which are served and delivered fresh.
Choose reusable options either through your own takeaway or delivery program or through a third-party delivery system as outlined in the Takeaway Container section.
When reusables are not applicable, choose disposable options that are compatible with available waste management infrastructure.
