Reduce and recycle
When it comes to the three ‘R’s (Reduce. Reuse. Recycle), we focus on reducing waste and using
recyclable materials to deliver our tasty treats.
- We have worked with the Public Place Recycling Scheme (Love NZ) to ensure that our boxes can be recycled throughout NZ.
- All our pizza and sides boxes, and our serviettes – more than 80% of our total packaging – are made from recycled fibres.
- We also have two paper sides bags that are recyclable and made from recycled fibre, and we’ve replaced our plastic bags with compostable eco bags.
- Our latest initiative is the introduction of pulp boards that can be used in our pizza ovens, which will help reduce the number of foil trays we use.
The foil we use for pasta and ribs is recyclable, but not everywhere in New Zealand, so we’re working on that with Love NZ!
We still have a bit of work to do but are very proud we add minimal packaging to our landfills. The same goes for food waste in our kitchens – because every order is made fresh, we minimise the amount of produce that ends up in the bin.
Last year, we put a brand-new fleet of 45 zero-emission electric delivery bikes to work in urban areas across the country – the plan was to improve delivery times, increase staff wellbeing, and reduce emissions in New Zealand’s most congested areas. They’ve been going well, and we’re proud to be doing our bit to help meet the government’s Zero Carbon Bill targets.
