25 Jul Why Ireland Should Be Leading The Way With Wooden Disposable Cutlery
A real opportunity for Irish retailers and consumers to effect a positive sustainable change in business through the use of greener packaging.
- Convenient – wooden cutlery is easily sourced and can be bought in bulk
- Sustainable – disposable wooden cutlery is manufactured from fast growing plants such as birch and bamboo, or lumber offcuts
- Compostable – these utensils are easily compostable, and can be composted domestically in as little as 90 days
- Lightweight – it is easy to store, and easy for customers to handle
- Sturdy – wooden cutlery is much more durable and user friendly than many plastic alternatives
- Quality – good quality disposable wooden cutlery gives a high end feel to your take away food options
- Inexpensive – bulk buying can significantly reduce costs
The cost of not making the change
When business owners and financial controllers look at cost packaging offers a moth to a flame opportunity to save money, or so it seems. The real cost is loosing customers who in their mind have decided to spend the hard earned cash in establishments that have made the jump away from plastics and non sustainable packaging. So we believe that in not choosing to offer sustainable packaging and consumables you are indeed choosing to ignore your customers who have said no more, who have in turn voted with their feet. So what is the true cost of not going green in your business? The answer to this lies in your cash register. Save money on consumable packaging at your peril. The customer and society has made their vote.
