Dealing with COVID-19 Shut Down: How takeaway food and drink services can be plastic free
With the lockdown, many cafes are switching to takeaway and delivery services to stay in business.
Boomerang Alliance's Plastic Free Places program has 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
