As the war on plastic heats up across the region, Jumeirah Restaurant Group (JRG) is further strengthening its commitment to the environment with the announcement of a company-wide ban on single-use plastic straws, swizzle sticks, stirrers and toothpicks across all its food and beverage outlets.
Coming into effect as of this Sunday March 18th, which also marks ‘International Companies That Care Day’, The Noodle House, Flow and Pierchic has already announced the removal of plastic straws and cutlery across its entire operation of physical restaurants and home delivery services, and now JRG’s other outlets including; Al Nafoorah, Pai Thai, Perry & Blackwelder’s, Trattoria Toscana, 360°, Segreto and The Agency are following suit by replacing all plastic with green alternatives.To celebrate the significant occasion, The Noodle House is also hosting its Plastic Amnesty Day on March 18th, whereby diners who bring unwanted takeaway plastic cutlery to any of its branches (excluding Dubai International Airport) will receive 50% off their total food bill.
“It is more important than ever that brands take responsibility for their part in creating a better world, and we are committed to phasing out plastic from all our operations as quickly as we can,” says Emma Banks, General Manager of Jumeirah Restaurant Group. “Removing plastic across our entire operation will see us playing our part in reducing the volume that is out there significantly damaging our environment and wildlife, which is something that must be taken into account all over the world.”
