Hong Kong pop-up with revolv
When ordering a takeaway a cardboard box may seem like an easy and innocent option but the reality is that most of these containers are still lined with plastic in order to avoid food from leaking. These containers represent a significant source of waste and environmental impacts due to their low recyclability. Taking into consideration wrappers and straws to the boxes and bags, single-use plastics count for an estimated 40% of all litter with Styrofoam being the most common food waste. What’s more, Styrofoam takes around 900 years to breakdown in landfill!
As a way to reduce some of this waste, revolv. teamed up with the Invisible Kitchen, Impossible Foods & Swire in Taikoo Place, Hong Kong to save a large number of disposable lunch boxes from ending up as waste. The event ran between June 17th - July 12th as a month-long plant-based food truck partnership and with Invisible Kitchen as Hong Kong’s greenest caterer, Impossible Foods’ meat made from plants and revolv’s reusable system, the food truck was set to be Hong Kong’s most environmentally friendly food truck.
The event proved to be successful, as through our reusable system we have saved around 600 boxes from landfill.
