Yes, our cup overfloweth with awards. Alison Johnstone, Green MSP for Lothian, has lodged a SECOND Scottish Parliamentary Motion for Vegware! We were blown away by our first Parliamentary Motion, and it’s just fantastic to have this kind of continued support and good will. The Motion *S4M-05743 reads:
Innovative Vegware Progresses to UK Final—That the Parliament congratulates the Edinburgh-based company, Vegware, on winning the category for best innovation at the Scottish Federation of Small Businesses’ Streamline Business Awards; understands that Vegware is the UK’s first and only firm that deals with completely compostable food packaging; believes that Vegware has seen an increase in its number of employees and commends what it sees as the company’s commitment to using technology in creative ways to reduce the impact of packaging through the use of annually renewable or recycled raw materials to produce sustainably sourced compostable tableware, cutlery, cups and takeaway cartons; believes that oil-based plastic packaging can lead to significant carbon emissions and landfill costs, and wishes Vegware success in the UK finals in London in April 2013.
