Sustainable practices are a growing trend in many businesses, including restaurants, as consumers increasingly seek more responsible alternatives. Restaurants strive to reduce their environmental impact by adopting sustainable practices in various areas of their operations, such as sourcing raw materials, transportation, and material choices. Worldwide, companies produce over 2 billion tons of waste annually. Individual restaurant packaging contributes significantly to this. Thus, eco-friendly fast food packaging is essential in making the restaurant industry more sustainable
Hygiene, protection and convenience – with eco-friendly fast food packaging
A key question for fast food restaurants is how to package food products efficiently and stylishly while remaining as ecological as possible. Along with being safe and suitable for edible goods, fast food packaging must meet a wide range of criteria – grease and spill proof, keeping the food fresh, protected and consumable, made from materials strong enough to hold the goods yet remaining convenient and light enough for customers or delivery drivers to transport. Eco-friendly fast food packaging should be able to meet all needs specific to the type of food product while still considering the environment and helping to improve the restaurant industry’s sustainability.
Opt for paper, sugarcane and biodegradable plastic
Restaurants can enhance the ecological aspects of their fast food packaging by opting for recyclable and compostable materials instead of traditional plastic or foam containers. Paper packaging is a more environmentally friendly option, and it is easier to recycle than plastic packaging. Life cycle studies show that single-use paper-based packaging has a smaller environmental impact compared to regular reusable dishes in fast food restaurants. Choosing fast food packaging made from recycled materials, such as recycled cardboard or paper, sugarcane or biodegradable plastic, allows restaurants to decrease their environmental impact.
