2020 Eateries Outreach
Tired of plastics when dining out? Disturbed by the sight of throngs of people carrying styrofoam boxes?
Plastic-Lite SG is on a mission to change that, one eatery at a time. But we also realise that a single anti-straw campaign, or only having discounts for sustainability, will not work!
To do that, we need your help in filling out this two-minute survey, which will help us understand the public’s needs and thus frame an effective approach for eateries outreach!
Same taste, less waste
Straw-Lite Eateries is our latest campaign, focusing on plastic straws. Plastic straws are ubiquitous across cafes and restaurants in Singapore, yet they are used for only minutes before being thrown away. Many straws find their way into the environment, polluting our beaches and injuring turtles and seabirds.
We are currently reaching out to cafes and restaurants across Singapore to encourage them to adopt a “straw-lite” policy, so that they only give out straws when requested. We also encourage eateries to phase out plastic disposables from their operations wherever they can.
We are proud to be working with the following partners:
- Plastic drinking straws have been removed from their stores. Bio-degradable straws made from corn will be available but only upon request.
- They encourage the use of re-usable shopping bags. Customers can purchase their new re-usable Baker & Cook hessian bags for only $10 to reduce use of plastic carry bags.
- Customers can receive a 50 cent discount from any size of take-away drink if they bring their own re-usable take away cup
- Baker & Cook branded Sol reusable take-away coffee cups can be purchased instore.
