Dunns Marketplace Event – March 2019
At Platform, our aim is to create a fully sustainable business where Green issues are at the forefront of all we do. Since opening in March 2018, we have achieved a Bronze Level Green Tourism award and been shortlisted in the Glasgow Business Awards for the Green Champion Award in recognition of the various green projects we have undertaken.
By adopting a very focussed approach to sustainability we have achieved a great deal in a very short time. We have achieved our business goals and controlled costs at the same time taking the first steps on our green journey to progressively reduce the carbon footprint of the iconic venue which is Platform.
At Platform we use Vegware for all takeaway items and our external catering service.
Made from plants, not plastic, Vegware's catering disposables are designed to be commercially decomposed with food waste. They are made from renewable, lower carbon or recycled materials.
Thanks to Vegware, your waste creates nutrient-rich compost in under 12 weeks, to feed UK soils and help new plants grow.
All used Vegware disposables can be placed in your ‘Food waste & compostable packaging bin’.
Conventional disposables create recycling challenges by mixing plastic and card. Add in food contamination, and recycling is even less likely.
Plastic + card + food = incineration or landfill
Vegware makes packaging from plants, not plastic. Our disposables are designed for commercial composting. Food contamination isn’t a problem, it’s a vital ingredient for composting.
Plant-based compostables + food = compost to feed UK soils
BOOST ALL RECYCLING
Once food waste and Vegware share one bin, there’s no food contaminating your dry recycling bin. That’s why in foodservice, compostable packaging is the key to recycling everything.
COMPOSTING YOUR VEGWARE
Vegware’s plant-based disposables break down with food waste in under 12 weeks in commercial composting. Facilities around the UK process used Vegware with food and garden waste into high-grade fertiliser.
Vegware holds independent compostability certification and have conducted extensive trials in organics recycling facilities.
COMPOST – VITAL TO UK FOOD SECURITY
UK soils are in crisis, with only 30 harvests left before fields are barren. Compost can reverse this trend, feeding British soil, to grow crops and feed British consumers.
Unlike liquid fertilisers, compost improves soil structure. This reduces rain run-off and therefore flood risk.
Composting is local recycling in the UK, not exporting waste across the world.
