Even if the disposable packaging introduced in March 2020 for serving food from the canteen was selected according to sustainability aspects - for example, the packaging is not made of plastic, but of compostable materials such as sugar cane (bagasse), paper or wood - that doesn't change the fact that with every order there is rubbish that is difficult or impossible to separate according to type!
With the introduction of the Mensa-to-go in March, things had to be done quickly, because in the high phase of the corona pandemic we had to act quickly to enable you to get food on campus. We even went one step further and launched our own canteen delivery service with a web shop in a very short time. Despite all efforts for a sustainable campus, it has been shown that the more guests pick up their food to-go in the canteen, the more rubbish is naturally generated.
As a consequence of this and after several constructive discussions with student representatives and employees of the universities we support, we have decided to dispense with the issue of disposable packaging from December 1, 2020 and to introduce the reusable-to-go system from Relevo.
