Pantree's Plastic Recycling Offsets & Sustainability Initiatives

Pantree's Plastic Recycling Offsets & Sustainability Initiatives

With Earth Day on the horizon and a peculiarly warm winter behind us here in the city, the conversation around climate change and our environmental impact is more pertinent than ever. At Pantree, as the leading provider of office snacks delivery in Toronto, we're not just about satisfying hunger cravings; we're committed to making a positive difference for our planet.

While our tree planting initiative, in partnership with Veritree, has been a cornerstone of our sustainability efforts, our green initiatives go beyond this to tackle another pressing issue: plastic pollution. Through our collaboration with Plastic Bank, we've introduced a Plastic Recycling Offset program for our home, office snacks service and food service customers, allowing them to offset the plastic in their carts with a simple checkbox at checkout.

Here's how it works: For every order containing plastic items, such as bottled water, we estimate the weight of plastic and pay Plastic Bank to offset an equivalent amount of plastic waste collected from beaches and waterways worldwide. By doing so, we prevent this waste from ending up in our oceans, supporting a cleaner and healthier environment for all. To delve deeper into Plastic Bank's impactful work, visit their website at https://plasticbank.com/.

But our commitment to sustainability doesn't stop there! At Pantree, it's woven into the fabric of our food industry service and office snacks delivery service and operations. Our Zero Waste Office Solutions encompass various initiatives aimed at reducing our carbon footprint and promoting environmental stewardship:

  • Carbon Neutral Delivery Fleet: We recognize the environmental impact of transportation and have taken steps to mitigate it. Our delivery fleet is carbon neutral, and we go the extra mile by planting additional trees to offset any emissions produced during delivery.
  • Zero Waste Office Services: In addition to providing delicious snacks and beverages, we offer zero waste services to our office customers. From recycling single-use plastic coffee pods to composting coffee grounds, we're committed to minimizing waste and promoting sustainable practices in the workplace.
  • B Corp Certification: We're proud to announce that Pantree is now B Corp certified. This prestigious designation reflects our commitment to meeting high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. It's a testament to our ongoing efforts to make a positive impact, both locally and globally.

As we approach Earth Day, we invite businesses and individuals alike to join us in embracing sustainable initiatives. Whether it's reducing single-use plastics, investing in renewable energy, or supporting eco-conscious brands, every action, no matter how small, contributes to a brighter, greener future.

At Pantree, we believe that every little bit helps to make a meaningful difference for our planet.

Until next time, 
The Pantree Team
