Camile introduce reusable cups to reduce single-serve packaging use

Camile Thai Kitchen, the healthy online delivery restaurant chain, has announced that they will be launching new reusable cups on a pilot basis for customers. These new modestly priced cups are designed to reduce the use of single-serve compostable paper cups, and so reduce Camile’s impact on the environment.

“While we were the first takeaway in Europe to introduce fully compostable packaging, we know it didn’t go far enough quick enough to make the differences we need,” says Caterina Liverani, Camile sustainability champion and London marketing manager.

“For too long, our industry has been paying lip service to the impact on the environment caused by single-use containers. We know this won’t solve the problem, but it is an attempt to try something different, and show there may be a better way forward,” she said.

Camile has been running a number of initiatives to reduce their impact on the planet apart from reusable cups. In 2019, Camile was the first takeaway chain in Europe to switch to fully compostable packaging, are are certified members of REPAK, and electricity is sourced from 100% renewable energy suppliers. From 2020, Camile are fitting free water refill fronts in all-new restaurants. Most recently, Camile is launching a meatless Chicken dish, made entirely from plants.
