Eco-Friendly Street Food Experience - Cafe Brands

For decades, the issue of food packaging has been addressed by chucking more plastic at the problem. This is an unsustainable approach, and savvy consumers are aware of this and are turning away from single-use plastics in their droves.

For food vendors, this presents a unique challenge – how to deliver their street food in a way that aligns with their customers’ growing environmental consciousness. Enter Cafe Brands’ innovative solution – the multi-award winning eco three-piece Street Food Collection.

Let’s look at how compostable packaging is changing the street food experience for the better.

The Problem with Traditional Packaging

The problem of single-use plastics of any type is not going away anytime soon. Even if we stopped all such use today, the amount of plastic already polluting the planet will ensure that we are living with the problem for centuries.

However, if we all take small steps, we can slowly begin to pave the way to a cleaner planet and a brighter future. Street food packaging can play a big role in this switch to a more sustainable future. To understand why this is, it is useful to look at some facts and figures:

  • In 2018, an estimated 2025 million takeout containers were used in the European Union alone.
  • About 29% of all greenhouse emissions come from packaging, and food takeout uses a lot of packaging.
  • Food and packaging materials make up almost half of all municipal solid waste, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
  • The production of plastics, which are commonly used in food packaging, accounts for about 1% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the US.
  • Plastic waste impacts over 700 marine species, with wildlife often mistaking litter for food or getting caught up in heavily littered areas.

Even alternatives like bioplastics can be problematic. If they end up in a landfill and don’t get the necessary air and light, they can emit methane, a greenhouse gas far more potent than carbon dioxide.
