Just Eat, UEFA launches eco-friendly food packaging at football match
The launch was last 31 July.
Just Eat and UEFA introduced their biodegradable food packaging at a major football match last 31 July.
In collaboration with Notpla, Just Eat provided its seaweed-coated biodegradable packaging at the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 Final.
Just Eat said the sustainable food packaging solution will reduce waste especially during mass sports events which generates an average of seven tonnes of waste.
“The cardboard boxes are lined with a coating which is unique in the way it replaces usual plastic, or bio-plastic, lined takeaway containers commonly used in the food industry,” read the press release.
“To ensure the boxes can be used as food packaging the seaweed-based coating is designed to be water-resistant and greaseproof. This innovative packaging is both recyclable and home-compostable and will biodegrade within 4-6 weeks, just like a piece of fruit,” it added.
