UK to try out reusable packaging with its takeaways

UK to try out reusable packaging with its takeaways: Customers ordering food online throughout the UK will soon have the opportunity to have their takeaway packaging sent back for reuse.

It’s a section of a trial set up by Just Eat & CLUBZERO that will give consumers an option to choose reusable packaging when turning in an order with a participating restaurant.

Following their meal, customers will either plan for the packaging to be collected by using an app or drop the items off at certain drop-off points.

Claimed by official data, nearly 500 million plastic takeaway boxes are used by the UK takeaway business annually and a majority of them end up in landfills.

The boxes that are being used on this trial are expected to use up to 50% less carbon dioxide than plastic coated boxes & are completely recyclable.

Robin Clark, Senior Director of Global Partnerships and Sustainability at Just Eat, stated: “This trial will help us assess how best to roll the service out more widely so that with the support of both customers & restaurant partners, we can continue to tackle plastic pollution across the sector.”
