Sustainability or social responsibility is fast becoming a prime concern for hospitality industry. Consumers are also increasingly aware of the issue of sustainability, expecting restaurants and hotels to assume responsibility and conduct their business with the environment in mind.
Sustainable dining and tourism is not just a rising trend, it has quickly becoming a deciding factor for consumers on where to take their business.
Key eco-friendly hospitality trends:
- Cutting down on food waste.
- More plant-based options on the menu.
- Minimizing water usage beyond the hotel room.
- Eliminating single use plastics.
- Conserving energy.
- Sustainability of service.
What TableCraft are doing:
Our products are built to last. If you buy a TableCraft product you know you are getting something to last a lifetime, not just a quick fix. We even offer a recoating service for our Professional Bakeware range to improve longevity.
However, we know that there is still a high demand for disposable products in the event catering industry. Taking a stand against single use plastics, we developed a sustainable range of bamboo and pine wood products for use at weddings, festivals, in food trucks and more!
The range is made from untreated bamboo or untreated pine wood. Both materials are biodegradable and (in theory) compostable, although neither are suitable for home composting. The range includes serving cones, cups, plates, flatware and picks; and packs are polybagged for hygiene (food safety) and to prevent wear or contamination, although packaging is kept to a minimum. You can see the full range here.
We also have a wide range of eco-friendly PLA an Paper Straws, which you can read all about here.
We are fully committed to the long term eco-friendly future of our business and are consistently innovating to find new, sustainable solutions for the hospitality industry.
