We’re very pleased to announce that we’ve been shortlisted for two 2016 Footprint Awards, in the Innovations in Packaging and Waste Management & Reduction categories.
We’ve been the lucky recipients of three Footprint Awards in the past – two in 2013 and one in 2012. These most recent accolades are in recognition of our innovative, low carbon compostable packaging solutions, and the work Vegware’s Food Waste Network does with our customers to help them go zero waste.
Vegware’s Food Waste Network is a free consultancy service matching clients with suitable food waste recycling options for their compostable packaging, as well as offering bespoke bin signage and support on communication and engagement to avoid contamination.
Our recent work with the University of Cambridge enables them to divert 1.5 tonnes of used packaging from landfill every month, as well as saving 1.5 tonnes of carbon – the equivalent of 69 flights from London to Edinburgh.
