Reducing disposable tableware

To reduce takeaway catering’s use of plastic in disposable tableware, the catering outlets at the University of Zurich promote the use of reusable tableware. These are more environmentally friendly and, at the same time, meet a growing consumer need. 

We have relied for many years on trailblazing partnerships, such as that with reCIRCLE. Its food boxes and beverage cups are produced in Switzerland, and can be purchased in any restaurant and returned to any participating restaurant throughout Switzerland. 

In future, ZFV aims to move increasingly towards the elimination of all disposable packaging. This approach is already in place in some restaurants, where all takeaway products are offered only through the returnable system.
