Although restaurants aren’t getting a lot of customers within their premises, the number of delivery calls have gone up significantly thanks to improved technologies and logistics. Since food is being packed instead of served on a plate, businesses will have to consider their choice of packaging carefully.

Plastics are light, cheap, and reliable but they tend to produce a lot of waste. Many are shifting to biodegradable containers to help reduce the volume of garbage at landfills. These will quickly break down and will not harm their immediate environment.

Consumers are also expecting restaurants to use these eco-friendly containers because of the green movement. Everyone knows the mounting problem by now so people are keen to do their part. They usually support businesses that are in line with their personal values.

Local regulations are also pushing the change as businesses that refuse to go green may be penalized for their non-cooperation.
