As a society, we are becoming more pro-active and aware of things we can do to help our environment and be a little more eco-friendly, and here at Indulge Catering, we are no exception! As a business, we are making our own efforts to care for the environment and lower our carbon footprint. This includes using all biodegradable products in everything we do in order to future proof our catering company and ensure that we are doing our bit for the environment.
It is very important to us that we use biodegradable products, because as a catering business, we have to provide lots of packaging with our food when we are catering to events, and so having biodegradable packaging significantly reduces the amount of pollution we have a hand in.
We wanted to tell you a little bit more about the changes we’ve made and why this is so important…
Our new biodegradable sandwich platter
As we cater to hundreds of events each year, a lot of this involves preparing and delivering buffet food. We had a think and decided that the best thing we could do to lower our carbon footprint, would be to switch the packaging we use so that it is biodegradable and can be recycled, as opposed to contributing towards unnecessary pollution.
This has helped Indulge Catering to become more eco-friendly and keeps us more socially aware of the changes we should make in order to look after our environment and lower the amount of waste we produce.
Our new biodegradable sandwich platter is available now and comes with any buffet that you order to your event. If you would like to order a selection of these, don’t hesitate to speak to us and we will be able to give you a quote and make the necessary arrangements.
The perks of using biodegradable products
Using biodegradable products has various different benefits. Plastic is overused and very harmful to our environment when not recycled. If plastic is not disposed of properly and recycled, it actually takes hundreds of years to break down naturally. Furthermore, there is so much plastic that ends up in the ocean, which is also incredibly dangerous to the wildlife. Therefore, biodegradable products are a fantastic alternative as they do not cause pollution, nor do they take hundreds of years to decompose naturally.
The best thing about biodegradable products is that they are easy to recycle and they decompose very quickly. They also consume a lot less energy because of the materials used to make them. It lowers petroleum consumption as this is what is used a lot in normal plastics, however biodegradable materials are made using better alternatives. As well as this, they reduce carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas levels.
