Coffee in the car, noodle box at the office, a soup on the go or even a pizza delivered at home, the single use disposable packaging is everywhere in our daily lives.
Their use has even raised exponentially during the lock-down times because traditional restaurants themselves also started offering delivered or taken away meals. This way of doing which should persist because of health crisis will certainly get stuck in fixed habits.

Cardboard replaces more and more plastic. Considering laws which pursue to reduce single use plastic, restaurants switch more to alternative and sustainable packaging as paper and cardboard. Cardboard lightness and malleability allow converting it in food packaging with various dimensions and volumes in order to carry any food: salad, pastry, sushi, sandwich or soup.
Unlike plastic, one aspect of cardboard packaging is to be many times recyclable.
Paper is the ideal environmental solution. Natural origin, it can be recycled many times. But above all, if by mistake it is dropped in nature, it will easily deteriorate.

It comes 100% from sustainable natural resources, meaning without oil. PLA is compostable, which means bio-degradable thanks to living microorganisms. This material provides a clear visual aspect, ideal for food and beverages display.
Bamboo is a great alternative to plastic. Very strong, washable and so reusable. It can also bring a fun hint until bamboo is available in many colors.

It is light and easily carriable. 100% biodegradable, it’s a natural material with really interesting characteristics for restaurants.
