We acknowledge that environment sustainability is an important initiative on a global scale where every effort contributes to preserving our planet.
At Obento, we have made conscious procurement for our products ranging from our ingredients to our packaging. The following measures we have taken are as follows:
- Source local and seasonal ingredients in our dishes where feasible, predominantly the meats and vegetables. In aim to support local businesses and reducing our carbon footprint.
- Using recyclable packaging containers.
- Our carrier bags are brown kraft bags and are made from 100% recycled paper, which are recyclable, compostable and reusable.
The packaging containers are only recyclable once food residue has been removed. Thus, to continue our initiative beyond our kitchen, we encourage are customers to please wash the containers prior to disposing. The containers can also be placed in the dishwasher to clean, the aluminum foil will discolour but will still be recyclable.
Kindly note that all effort has been made to aim for 100% recyclable products, but it was not possible with the container lids of the foil packaging. These lids are plastic lined to ensure the contents are kept fresh and putting food safety first for our customers.
