foodpanda Joins WWF’s #AyokoNgPlastik Movement and #GoGreen Campaign

The food industry and sector need to push more for the ban of using plastic mainly and not only for the bad effects it has to our body’s health, but equally important is the effect it has to animals and our environment as well.

While more people are consciously working on Go Green campaigns worldwide, there are still millions of other people who need to pitch in their help even in their own little way to lessen plastic waste. Better yet it would be great to really eliminate the use of plastic to avoid plastic waste that often end up in our ocean, killing sea creatures especially those endangered ones in the process.

Ayoko ng Plastic movement is saying NO to the use of plastic like bags for example. Davao City establishments has been observing this for the past few years. This calls everyone to pitch in on a personal level. Each one of us can easily do our share.

Read on below to know more from foodpanda press release as they join #AyokoNgPlastik movement of WWF for their #GoGreen campaign.

As the world continues to veer away from the use of plastics in exchange for more eco-friendly alternatives, foodpanda, the on-demand food delivery service in the Philippines, continues its #GoGreen initiative by partnering with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines, the 26th national organization of the WWF network, for its #AyokoNgPlastik movement. The movement aims to combat the over usage of single-use plastics in the day to day lives of people by encouraging the use of more sustainable materials.

Starting next month, everyone has the option to join the movement when opting out for plastic cutlery and choosing to donate Php 1.00 or Php 5.00 per order to help WWF-Philippines in their battle against plastic waste.

“We, at foodpanda, believe that the partnership with the WWF-Philippines strengthens our vision for the #GoGreen campaign. I am excited for this collaboration, as we are talking about two pandas colliding and joining forces to help decrease the use of plastic,” says CEO for foodpanda Philippines, Iacopo Rovere.

To date, foodpanda has almost 10% of their restaurant partners participating in the opt in/out cutlery across its three key cities: Metro Manila, Metro Cebu and Davao. By partnering with WWF-Philippines, foodpanda will be able to increase the reach and impact of its #GoGreen campaign. , Not just for the environment, but for the businesses involved as well as it allows restaurant partners to save money from cutlery costs.

”This partnership with foodpanda against the use of single-use plastics – the first food delivery service to join us in protecting the environment. Together with foodpanda, we will continue to paint the world green (and pink),” shares President of WWF-Philippines, Jose Angelito Palma.foodpanda - WWF Photo

With this partnership, foodpanda hopes to make a difference in the way plastic waste is perceived and reduce the overall environmental impact of food packaging waste. If you already have easy access to cutlery or if you do not need it for your meal, foodpanda encourages you to consider opting-out from cutlery to help reduce plastic usage and help WWF-Philippines’ movement.
