The journey to going zero-waste and sustainable is not easy. It could mean giving up all sorts of convenience. However, what seem like inconveniences, like bringing your own reusable spoon, fork, straw, and even food containers everywhere you may go, can be beneficial in the long run.
Apart from keeping waste away from already polluted bodies of water like our oceans, it can also prevent marine animals from dying due to plastic ingestion.
Several food joints are responding to the resounding call of going zero-waste. Joining them are restaurants under The Moment Group.
The Filipino-founded, multi-restaurant empire will implement a sustainable policy in eleven of its concept restaurants—by only giving take-out and delivery utensils, as well as paper straws, upon request. The food joints adapting to this new approach are the following:
- 8 Cuts Burgers
- Manam Comfort Filipino
- Din Tai Fung
- Ooma Bold New Japanese
- Phat Pho Vietnamese Kitchen Manila
- Shawa Wama
- Bank Bar
- Mecha Uma
- The Mess Hall
- The Test Kitchen
- Manam Express
“Moment-wide, we won’t be giving a fork, spoon, or straw unless you ask for it,” an Instagram post says. “[The aim is] to lessen our use of disposables.”
The group also calls for customers to help them be “conscious consumers” by being one.
