Whatever we do we always work with the environment in mind. All our meals can be delivered in either individual boxes (one per person) or larger sharing platters (one big box of each product for people to help themselves to).
Our individual salad box and sharing salad box for two people are both made from sugarcane bagasse and the lids from PLA, both are fully compostable. Our larger sharing boxes are made from sustainably sourced board with PLA window and are also fully compostable.
To avoid waste, cutlery and napkins are only delivered on request. The cutlery is made out of renewable resources and the napkins recycled fibres, both are fully compostable.
Our sustainability promise
At potage we're passionate about delivering delicious, freshly prepared meals in a sustainable way. Whatever we are doing, as a team we always work with the environment in mind.
1. Source seasonal, local ingredients whenever possible. Whenever possible we do our best to buy seasonal, local produce to reduce the energy (and associated CO2 emissions) needed to grow and transport the food. If it's locally sourced it's also seasonal which means fresher, and therefore tends to be tastier and more nutritious.
2. Minimal packaging & no plastic. We try to use as little packaging as possible, for example cutlery and napkins are only delivered on request. Our salad boxes are all fully compostable, made from plants not plastic. Our carrier bags are made from recycled paper and are also recyclable and compostable.
3. Zero food waste. All our meals are made to order to minimise food waste. At the moment our food leftovers are almost zero so we can't even send them to a charity. If things were to change as we grow, we'll let you know which charity we donate them to.
