Fast food franchises get rid of plastic bags
Franchises are getting on board to help rid Australia of plastic bags.
Australian owned and operated national brands Red Rooster and Oporto as well as WA fast food favourite Chicken Treat have commenced phasing out single-use plastic bags.
With stock no longer being replenished, some restaurants will be plastic bag free in the next month, with 100% of the network onboard with #banthebag by July 2018.
This will see 8 million plastic bags removed from future circulation and landfill.
Parent company Craveable Brands CEO Brett Houldin said, “As an Australian business it’s our responsibility to reduce our impact on our country and oceans wherever possible. We are excited to bring about positive change.”
The phasing out of plastic bags will begin immediately across the restaurant network. Team members are said to be in full support of the initiative.
Craveable Brands network of restaurants reaches far and wide across metro, suburban, regional and rural areas of Australia.
