At present, what can really be called environmentally friendly disposable plates and cutlery, and the price can be accepted by everyone, only paper lunch boxes, which are divided into pure pulp paper, kraft paper, bamboo fiber paper, etc
According to statistics, there are 364 million take-out users in China. On average, each person orders take-out once a day. One take-out consumes 2 plastic tableware, 265.7 billion tableware is consumed in a year, and the amount of plastic waste generated will reach 10 million tons.
And the whereabouts of these garbage, in addition to being buried and incinerated, the possibility of secondary recycling is almost zero. It takes 470 years to degrade after being buried, and the pollution caused by incineration can be imagined.
In addition to take-out, the disposable tableware used in many restaurants, such as chopstick covers, are also packaged in plastic, so the amount of plastic waste generated every day is also a huge number.
Therefore, the plastic waste generated by the catering industry has become an urgent problem to be solved. If this is the case, why don't the relevant departments manage it? It's not that it can't be managed, but it's not easy to manage. The reason is that businesses want to reduce their operating costs. Because the price of general environmentally friendly and degradable disposable takeaway tableware is much higher than that of ordinary plastic tableware, many businesses do not want to use it, but cannot afford it.
The establishment of Beijing Yimu Yixin Environmental Protection Technology Co., Ltd. can just solve this problem, low-cost environmental protection tableware, and restaurants can also customize disposable environmental protection tableware according to their own needs. The price is comparable to ordinary plastic tableware, even better than some Plastic cutlery prices are even lower.
The owner of a noodle restaurant specializing in takeaway said that every day he sees these plastic lunch boxes turn into a pile of non-degradable plastic waste through his own hands. Sometimes he feels self-blame when he thinks about it.
For some of their own interests, they pollute the social environment. He also knows that disposable environmental protection tableware is definitely a trend in the future, but the price of environmental protection tableware and the degree of applicability to meals are really not a good choice at present.
At present, what can really be called environmentally friendly disposable plates and cutlery, and the price can be accepted by everyone, only paper lunch boxes, which are divided into pure pulp paper, kraft paper, bamboo fiber paper, etc. Etc., in fact, the applicability of paper lunch boxes to meals is almost the same, but there is a certain gap in price. The cost of bamboo fiber paper and kraft paper is relatively high, while the price of environmentally friendly disposable plates and cutlery is relatively high. , and the price of ordinary PP lunch boxes are basically the same, so the popularity of virgin paper in the market is still relatively high. After Shanghai issued the ban on plastics, virgin paper bowls are also officially designated by relevant departments. Environmentally friendly Disposable plates and cutlery.
Many businesses currently use about 1200ml of plastic round bowls, and the purchase price of currency is also around 0.65 yuan, while the customized paper bowls of the same size launched by Yimu Yixin have been done in terms of aesthetics, brand promotion, and applicability. A big improvement. Surprisingly, the price of environmentally friendly paper bowls and ordinary plastic round bowls is basically the same. When some brand-conscious restaurants heard such news, they began to customize packaging tools with their own brand attributes. .
In addition to the disposable environmentally friendly paper bowls that can be customized for takeaways, Yimu Yixin also has disposable environmentally friendly tableware bags. The plastic packaging of the tableware bags used for takeaway and dine-in is replaced with paper film, which reduces plastic waste to a certain extent. The restaurant owner can also customize the original tableware package according to his own needs, and add some marketing tools such as vouchers and loyalty cards to increase customer stickiness and steadily increase store turnover. Yimu Yixin has its own independent factory, which greatly reduces production and logistics costs, allowing many small and medium-sized restaurants to enjoy the service of environmentally friendly customized tableware at the price of ordinary tableware.
The new era, new market, environmentally friendly tableware + customized tableware must be the general trend of tableware development in the catering industry in the future. Restaurants that do not understand reform and have been staying in place will eventually be lost in the vast wave of catering enterprises.
