Commissary is doing its bit by being part of the Food Savior app, which offers you great deals on food which otherwise may be been thrown away! As a JIA Group restaurant, it’s also completely plastic straw free.

CÉ LA VI is also joining the movement and saying no to plastic! So, when you’re sipping on a cocktail on the Sky Deck, you can be sure there won’t be a straw in your drink, and only paper straws that are biodegradable are used upon request.

This world-know Japanese restaurant has removed plastic entirely from the bar, using only 100% biodegradable potato starch and paper straws. The Hong Kong initiative actually resulted in all other Zuma’s around the world following suit!

Tava currently uses take away cutlery made from potato starch and boxes made from cardboard. The staff promise an alternative to the plastic take-away cups soon, so make sure to bring your own cup in the meantime.

Supafood’s main meal box packaging is made of bamboo material. Plastic is still used for the dressings, on the side orders, cold drinks containers and soup lids. So consider asking for extras on top and bringing a thermos as a more eco-friendly alternative.

After learning that single use straws take hundred of years to breakdown, COA banned plastic straws from the entire bar. The one cocktail which still comes with a straw is a reusable bamboo straw from Oaxaca.
