#EatEffect // Biodegradable Food Packaging To Reduce Plastic Usage At Home

The environment is our responsibility and so it taking care of it. While blissfully enjoying our food, whether at a restaurant, dhaba, roadside or home we often forget the damage we are causing to the environment with our everyday plastic usage.

First Things First

Plastic plates and cutlery are widely used all over India. Picnics and food stalls are just two examples where these come into use the most. Even economical airlines use plastic cutlery! It’s time we stop plastic usage and become a little more environmentally conscious. So, switch to these 100% biodegradable options whenever you find yourself in need of things to pack or dispose.

Wood

Disposable packaging, tableware and cutlery; the wooden alternative is strong, microwave friendly and resistant to oils. We especially love the pine boat design and its #tablewaregoals. It isn’t used to serve the raindrop cake in Japan for nothing!

Areca

Tableware, storage boxes and cutlery designed from the leaf sheaths that fall from Areca nut tree. These are elegant, lightweight but sturdy and highly energy efficient. Being compostable they are actually good for the soil! These perfectly represent what we mean by #EatEffect!

Bagasse

Bagasse is the fibre left over after sugarcane stalks are crushed for their juice (remember all the ganne ka juice you had in monsoon?). The bagasse is collected, processed and recycled to form packaging materials like plates and bowls.

#EatExtra: We also recommend using old newspaper bags and jute packaging so that you get that responsible feeling for being environmentally conscious and supporting the #EatEffect campaign!


This article is part of the EatTreat campaign to eat better and live more consciously. We are creating the #EatEffect. Are you with us? #GreenIsTheNewBlack. Come see us at our event – The Great Winter Picnic.
