At The Taste, we love our planet, the people, and the vibe. Most of all, we want to do our bit to preserve the beautiful countryside and protect the environment.
When we opened The Taste, we had a clear vision of serving fresh and healthy Thai takeaway food, made using only the best ingredients. Added to that, was the thought that not any standard packaging would do. We wanted containers that reflected our brand, looked classy and most important, were eco-friendly.
As we all know, foam containers take years to degrade, and when they finally do, they release toxic chemicals into the environment. They are also not good for your health, containing styrene which is a chemical that leaches out in small amounts into the contents of the food or beverage. Extended intake of styrene is known to cause a variety of problems including respiratory problems, headaches, fatigue, and weakness.
There had to be a smarter and better choice! After much research, we found a line of takeaway containers that are manufactured using sustainable natural products. Made from an innovative combination of sugarcane, bamboo, oil palm fruit branches and PLA, a natural binding ingredient, we have a range of biodegradable containers that delight both our clients and us.
When processed, sugarcane and bamboo produce paper-like by-products that prevent the cutting down of thousands of trees. They are fast growing plants and require no fertilisers or pesticides. The containers manufactured from these alternative sources are light and strong, ideal to get your meal home, hot and ready to eat. When you are done, toss them, knowing that they will degrade into natural elements and will not release harmful chemicals into the atmosphere.
We also offer classic paper bags for you to carry your meals in. Recycle and use them again next time you visit us. You will get a real feel-good vibe knowing that you are doing your bit to save our planet.
So pop into The Taste and have a look at our fabulous range of environmentally friendly containers. If you want us to fill them with some delicious Thai food, we will be super happy to do that too!
