We have specifically listed packaging that is at-home compostable and also meal-plan membership programs that Tupperware return programs.*Many of the restaurants on this list also use PLA, a type of plastic made from plants, but as PLA plastics are not at-home compostable, we have only listed their menu items that omit the PLA containers.
RTF Tip: Call the restaurants directly to make sure that your order doesn’t contain any rogue plastic that might appear if you order via a third-party application. Click on the restaurant name to be linked to directly to their food menus, social media pages and contact details.
The Banana Warrior Cafe are using a mix of banana leaf and brown paper wrapping for their cake and bread deliveries! For deliveries from their cafe, they use cardboard boxes tied with string. *NOTE: Some cardboard boxes come with plastic, so make sure you specify otherwise.
“All food items (except the pasta with sauce, which has a plastic lid) come in compostable Gracs takeaway containers or paper wrapping.

The newest restaurant in town has adopted a sustainable ethos! All of their delivery food is beautifully encased in SiamLeaf. Making the Kappra Food look just as incredible as it tastes.
“We feel like we need to be more responsible for the health of the environment! So we have decided to use Siamleaf, which is made from leaves! We use hand-crafted paper belts to secure the bowls because we do not want to use any rubber bands. However, we still use the craft cup with plastic lit for our sauces/salad dressing”.
There are very few items on the menu that don’t come in compostable Gracs packaging – Please be sure to check!

What's Our 'Take-Away' From The List?

Our next article on eco-friendly packaging will be about PLA (plant plastics); composting vs bio-degradable, and a list of all available packaging on the market. Be sure to SUBSCRIBE to our newsletter!
