Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, another crisis is threatening our planet: more single-use plastic items being discarded.

Most of us are aware of the shocking amount of waste throwaway plastic items left behind to pollute our planet. According to National Geographic, 78 million metric tons of plastic packaging is produced globally each year. Lightweight and floatable, nine million tons of plastic escape and flow into our oceans annually.

And a big part of what is fuelling our plastic waste crisis is single-use plastic cutlery. The Covid-19 pandemic has led to an increased reliance on large amounts of single-use plastic. As restaurants moved to takeaway orders to stay afloat and canteens and offices have reverted to disposable cutlery due to sanitary concerns, plastic knife, fork and spoon use has soared.

Plastic cutlery is often seen as a low-cost, convenient option for businesses, but from an environmental viewpoint, it is an expensive option. Single use plastic cutlery adds to the density of landfills, pollutes waterways and contains harmful components, such as Bisphenol-A or BPA, that can leech into food, soil, and ground water.

How food outlets can stay sustainable through COVID-19

If you opt to use disposable cutlery at your cafe, restaurant, bar, canteen, event, catering business or takeaway bar, you can help your business stay sustainable by using compostable cutlery.

Compostable cutlery is sustainable. Made from plant-based renewable materials, such as bamboo, sugar cane, potato starch and corn, it is suitable for both hot and cold food. At Insinc, we offer a range of sustainable, eco-friendly alternatives to plastic cutlery. We have an extensive range to choose from at competitive prices.
