Reusable packaging for Truff & Moi dishes
Currently, our country is facing a serious problem related to the way disposable plastic packaging waste impacts the environment. Romania is constantly the subject of not very flattering rankings, most of these mentions being due to the violation of some norms regarding the protection of the environment or the unjustified delay of recycling measures according to the European legislation. On 14 February 2020, the European Commission decided to give Romania 4 months to take the necessary measures to “protect its citizens against air pollution”, according to a statement issued on Thursday by the EU Executive (ec.europa.eu)
According to a DW.com study on how plastic is recycled or plastic waste is processed, we are right behind some countries in SE Europe, such as Poland or Bulgaria.
We are the subject of numerous notifications related to the improper management of some situations regarding waste management.
We are also aware that pollution from disposable plastic packaging has created five truly frightening floating garbage islands – the „Great Pacific Garbage Patch” for example, has an area of 1.6 million square kilometers, three times the surface of France.
But what is really worrying is that tiny pieces of plastic were found in the fish we catch consume and … “eliminate”. (source here).
We used this long introduction to come to a sad conclusion – these packages have become part of our lives and if we are honest with ourselves, we can recognize the increased resistance to change of some of our peers, especially in the conditions of pushing out of the proverbial comfort zone.
Because we want to minimize the negative impact on the environment, but at the same time we want you to enjoy Chef Mora’s dishes in the best conditions, we chose to use packaging with a high level of quality. These implicitly involve a higher cost, but have the advantage that they can be reused. Thus, the boxes can be washed and then used to store food in the refrigerator, and the bags in which our dishes are delivered can be used later for shopping or for any other purpose – we must give credit to the pleasant design. We also offer a set of disposable cutlery of the highest quality for each dish. If you serve the food ordered at home, our suggestion would be to keep the cutlery for other occasions or to check the “no cutlery” option when placing the order.
Thank you for sharing our concern for keeping a cleaner planet and contributing to a responsible and healthy lifestyle!
