Why Eco Packaging Is the Perfect Element to Introduce to Your Café
Whilst sitting down with a good coffee and stimulating magazine is sometimes the best way to experience a brilliant café, not everyone has the time for that! An increasing number of customers are now looking for convenience, not comfort. Takeaway is fast taking over as the preferred method of consumption whether that be coffee, cake, or a wholesome salad.
That’s why you need to ensure that not only do you have hot cups and other takeaway containers at the ready, but that your containers are up to scratch for the demands of the modern consumer.
Young consumers are increasingly becoming conscious of their drink and food choices and want their food to stay healthy and nutritious from the kitchen to their mouth.
What they may not be aware of though, is the impact plastic takeaway containers have on food and drinks. Nasty micro plastics leach into the food, undoing all the good things that have been done to ensure your food is as healthy as possible.
Luckily, there are alternatives to plastic containers that don’t take hundreds of years to break down. And they won’t break the bank either!
Compostable Coffee Cups Do Not Contain Any Allergens
Modern coffee consumers are more than willing to pay extra for their coffee, provided that the coffee cups being used meet their ethical and environmental standards and are friendly to the environment. Many companies and coffee shops all over Europe have already opted on using 100% compostable coffee cups. They are not only using this to remain in good standing with their clients, but also as a way of protecting the environment.
Because of this, the paper industry has continued to maintain a positive growth rate, alongside the ever-increasing demand for organic coffee and tea, and the need for businesses to adopt sustainable solutions. Studies have over time indicated that companies that prove they are environmentally friendly tend to have an advantage over their competitors who do not.
Green Business Is Now A Trend
Today, a lot of customers understand their footprint on our planet and want to play an active role in keeping the environment clean.
Green branding has become a powerful strategy for businesses. Products with a sustainable mark are witnessing higher demand. In coffee shops, using biodegradable paper cups is a massive pull for customers.
And the good news is that sustainable businesses can only expect the eco conscious niche to flourish. Millennials already consume most of the sustainable products. As more youth join the green bandwagon, businesses can expect more plentiful harvest.
