Doing the right thing

shutterstock_1039300888Doing things right in catering and hospitality is no longer just about cost and speed of delivery. It's also about our environment and health. 

Most people are now awake to the damage that single use plastic is doing to the environment and wildlife. At least eight million pieces of plastic are estimated to enter the oceans every single day, and a plastic bottle is said to last for 450 years in the marine environment. 

These breakdown into microplastics which are eaten by fish and so enter the food chain and, ultimately, our bodies. 

More of us than ever are demanding that organisations help slow down this environmental damage and health risk. From customers to employees, there are now an expectation of more responsible purchasing.

With Banner you can meet not only you operational and efficiency targets, but also your Environmental ones, with our range of catering and hospitality supplies.


Sustainable solutions
A range of Bio degradable, compostable and recyclable catering products is now available from Banner.

From hot drink cups and lids to water cups ad cutlery, Banner's range of PLA (Polylactic Acid) products naturally degrade when exposed to the environment. A PLA product would typically degrade in the ocean within 6 to 24 months, compared to hundreds of years of conventional plastic. 

Banner's PLA products are made from corn starch which is a renewable source. they are compostable in industrial composting facilities, and fully certified for this, so can display the seedling logo. Users simply place the product in an organic waste collection bin for it to be collected and processed.

The range can also biodegrade in landfill, with the speed of this depending on moisture levels, temperature and humidity.
