January - What's new in the club?

Finally! England bans single-use plastic packaging
As reported, England uses around 1.1 billion single-use plates and 4.25 billion pieces such as cutlery every year, with only 10% being successfully recycled after use - but 90% ending up in landfills, and our oceans!
The upcoming ban will be a tremendous step forward toward a zero waste future for both food and beverage packaging, particularly for takeaways, to-gos as well as home and office delivery! Good news: We are already providing a convenient and cost competitive solution across the UK.

And what about our existing Hosts?
Customers have LOVED The Salad Kitchen, our Host of the Month, this month with 380+ orders - and they LOVED saving 760+ single-use plastic packaging from landfill and 11kg of CO2 emissions.
