Just Eat to trial a tick box on single-use plastics

Starting April 1, it will be trialling a pre-ticked box on its app and website for customers.

It is a nudge to customers who opt out of receiving extra single-use plastic items such as plastic cutlery, straws, and sauce sachets. The company will also be working alongside experts to come up with sustainable packaging alternatives, but is not at this stage offering a more sustainable alternative.

“Many of the plastics polluting our oceans are by-products of food and drink consumption,” Graham Corfield, UK Managing Director of Just Eat, said. “As the market leader in online food delivery, we are using our influence to drive more environmentally-friendly behaviour among our restaurant partners and customers.”
