Less waste and litter
For every 1,000 plates / cutlery that we hire out we prevent waste equivalent to two weeks worth of household rubbish.
Less to throw away = less potential litter.
Less resource use
Our plates and cutlery will be reused hundreds of times instead of requiring valuable resources and energy to produce new tableware that is going to end up in the bin after just one use.
Single use is always single use even if you’re using compostable plates and cutlery. We were moved to set up LOOP when we learnt that most composting facilities aren’t currently set up to deal with compostable packaging so it’s still ending up in the bin.
Improved dining experience
Real plates and real cutlery make for an altogether better eating experience.
