World’s largest airport Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International forces Catering contractors to use Compostable Packaging  in their Tender’s.

The ZWA Blog post, Atlanta Airport Makes Bold Statement, gives an overview of the contract provision at the world’s largest airport.  The foodservice industry is at the cusp of a new era in packaging where compostable and|or recyclable products are the norm.Full link here http://zerowastezone.blogspot.ie/2012/08/role-compostable-packaging-plays-in.html?showComment=1345555836249#c8105974127129619728

 

Do you know of a take away that uses Compostable packaging?

La Buca a really good Italian restaurant and pizzeria here in Dunboyne County Meath, also in Rathoath and Ashbourne does take away meals in Compostable recyclable materials. So much easier when finished with your food just to put the remainder  including a box like a normal Burger box into the Brown bin.

Next time you order a take away why not ask if they do compostable packaging and if not why not.
