'Just Eat' Delivery Service Lets Customers Opt Out Of Plastic Waste

By

Excess single-use plastic items and sauce packets arrive frequently in takeout orders. A number of these are disposed of right when people are done with their food, but that waste can be cut down pretty easily. How so? If restaurants and delivery services stop adding them to our takeout bags to begin with. That’s what United Kingdom’s takeout service, Just Eat, will be doing after a survey showed a majority of their customers don’t want these items anyway.

Nearly 75 percent of Just Eat’s customers would like to decline receiving plastic eating utensils, straws, and packaged condiments when ordering their food based on recent research by the company. Nearly half of them would be more inclined to order from restaurants that don’t give them these extra items in the first place.
