March - CLUBZERØ wins government grant for packaging!
05 April 2023
You might have read in our January newsletter that England has finally announced a ban on single-use plastic packaging (effective October 2023). Since then we are thrilled to announce that CLUBZERØ has won the UK Research and Innovation's Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging (SSPP) challenge, the largest and most ambitious UK government investment to date in sustainable plastics research and innovation. Watch this space!
We've also been featured in Sifted's (Financial Times) Unwrapped Packaging report which invited Europe's most trailblazing start-ups to discuss how natural or reusable materials can replace single-use plastic packaging ahead of the upcoming bans.
Incredible updates coming your way in the upcoming months including exciting new packaging launches and improved tech as we continue our mission towards a zero waste future.
Our club grows - with more Hosts!
We are happy to welcome 4 new Hosts to our Club:
And.. after great success, Nusa Kitchen launched an additional location in London to expand their offering of zero waste packaging to their customers.
Together with our new Hosts, we estimate to save 52,000+ items of single-use plastics from ending up in landfill annually!
And what about our existing Hosts?
Customers have LOVED HOP Vietnamese, our Host of the Month, and they LOVED saving 560+ single-use plastic packaging from landfill and 8kg of CO2 emissions.
