At Platterz, we think it’s up to everyone to do their part in making sure we protect the environment. Earth Day is a great reminder that going greener in the workplace isn’t just a way to be more responsible as an organization – it’s also a way to inspire your colleagues to take those principles home and strive towards a healthier planet every day.
Environmental responsibility is something we’ve made a commitment to uphold, which is why you can be confident that when you order with Platterz, you’re not only making the best office catering choice for your team – you’re also working with a team that cares.
Here are four reasons why using Platterz to order food for your next event will help you do your part towards lowering your company’s environmental footprint:
1. Go paperless with Platterz SpendTracker
Recycling is a good start, but have you ever thought about the carbon footprint of your office’s daily operations? According to data collected by the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden, every 100 paper invoices that are printed have the same impact on carbon footprint as driving 14 kilometres.
Platterz SpendTracker allows you to go fully paperless. It lets you see all paid and unpaid invoices in one location and gives you the ability to download invoices at your convenience. No more paper invoices!
2. Feed the whole office with a single delivery
If your employees are ordering their own takeout to the office, they’re multiplying the number of vehicles needed to keep the whole team fed and energized. Fewer cars on the road make for a happier planet, so ordering with Platterz for the whole office in one shot can make a big difference over time.
3. Choose from your city’s top sustainable food choices
From vegan and vegetarian foods that require fewer emissions to produce, to local and sustainably-sourced fare, there’s no shortage of delicious eco-friendly food choices on Platterz. Why not experiment with a Meatless Monday initiative to encourage your team to try out healthier, more sustainable food options? You just might find a new lunch favourite!
4. Make hardcopy takeout menus a thing of the past
Trying to add variety to your team’s lunches can mean collecting hardcopy takeout menus that spend most of their time cluttering desk space. Worse, they often can’t be recycled because of the way the paper they’re printed on is processed. The solution? Do away with them completely and view hundreds of catering menus online easily with Platterz.
