Finding alternatives to plastic in secondary schools

Our research tells us that secondary school pupils are concerned about the planet. They have strong views on what materials their food is served in. That’s why when, on occasions when students don’t want to eat from china crockery, we’ve chosen to use award-winning disposable pots and cups made by Vegware.

Vegware is the global specialist in plant-based compostable foodservice packaging. They make their plant-based catering disposables from renewable, lower carbon, recycled or reclaimed materials. These materials can all be commercially composted with food waste where accepted.
