During International Plastic Bag Free Day, the Ministry of Municipality and Environment partnered with talabat Qatar to raise awareness around plastic pollution and encourage customers to reduce its consumption. On that occasion, on July 3rd, talabat Mart replaced all single-use plastic bags with paper bags. In addition, seven restaurants had their food delivered in paper bags as well: McDonald’s, Dunkin Donuts, Hardee’s, Exit 55, Graze Cafe, Pappa Roti and Volume Cafe.
In line with talabat’s commitment to a sustainable future, this initiative contributes to protect the environment and specifically marine life, which is highly affected by plastic pollution. The Ministry of Municipality and Environment highlighted talabat’s efforts to reduce plastic pollution, by offering an award to talabat Qatar's Managing Director, Francisco Miguel De Sousa.
Noof Bakhamis, Head of the Awareness Section at the Public Relations Department of the Ministry of Municipality and Environment, stated that “activating the International Plastic Bag Free Day in cooperation with state institutions serves the Ministry's directions to have sustainable, environmentally friendly cities and to promote alternatives to plastic for our future and for the sustainability of our resources.”
Francisco Miguel De Sousa, Managing Director of talabat Qatar, said “We are highly committed to protect the environment by implementing sustainable initiatives that will help raise awareness, educate customers and contribute to a better future. We would like to thank the Ministry of Municipality and Environment for partnering with us during International Plastic Bag Free Day, aiming together to reduce plastic consumption, in line with Qatar National Vision 2030. “
talabat has launched a series of initiatives to protect the environment, including cleaning beaches, recycling its papers, and switching to biodegradable plastic bags in all its talabat Mart stores. In addition, sustainable solutions are being implemented in Qatar to help the whole ecosystem embark on a sustainable journey.
Consumers can download talabat on the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.
