WE ARE GOING GREENER
Our team has been at the drawing board all year, working on ways we can help reduce our plastic usage by 90%, but continue to deliver fresh and tasty lunchboxes, and trying to do so before Term 3 commences.
Well, we have done it!
Our lunchboxes will now be delivered in our new Sugarcane bento style lunchbox. The boxes have multiple self-contained compartments reducing the need to use as much individual packets and containers. As there is still a number of foods needing to be packed separately, we will using Sugarcane tubs wherever possible.
Some Sugarcane tubs still require a plastic lid simply as they haven't created a lid yet, but we have been assured that is coming. There are also a few foods that need to be sealed in order to retain freshness. At this stage, there isn't anything suitable to replace these, however, we are moving away from the plastic packaging to a BPA free foil bag. Still not as sustainable as we would like, but as each packet uses less material than our current plastic bags, reducing the waste is still a win.
We are hoping to be plastic free by 2023!!
We welcome any and all feedback around our new packaging, either as a whole or regards to an individual item. Tell us what you think!!
