Vegware has launched the Composting Collective, a bring-back scheme to capture used takeaway Vegware for composting. Currently rolling out in Bristol, the Composting Collective is a network of local cafes which accept Vegware packaging for composting.
More and more Vegware clients are composting disposables. Now, with our new Composting Collective, consumers can return their takeaway packaging to any bring-back bin for composting. Even if it was bought elsewhere.
Consumers can spot sites by their Composting Collective window stickers and in-café posters. It’s a great way to encourage customers to visit other independent cafes – to return used Vegware, and to buy another coffee!
All Vegware packaging captured in the Composting Collective is sent for commercial composting. Under these ideal conditions, Vegware’s plant-based packaging breaks down in under 12 weeks, turning into quality compost – to return nutrients to UK soils and help new plants grow. All while supporting the UK’s circular economy.
