Delivery – Takeaway ecological options
Ecological delivery options
Today more than ever, businesses are looking for ecological delivery/takeaway options, indicating the need to adopt a greener everyday life.
In particular, as of January 1, 2022, an environmental protection levy is imposed on take away and delivery for single-use plastic products, which “are available as food and beverage packaging during their sale by mass catering businesses and retail businesses”, according to by AADE decision published in the Official Gazette.
More specifically, the payment of the levy is imposed on consumers per piece of product. The plastic cover or cap is considered a distinct product, for which the levy is imposed independently, as indicated in the relevant decision.
Environmental protection contribution
The environmental protection levy applies to:
• Cups for drinks, including their covers and lids.
• Food containers, i.e. containers such as boxes with or without lids, inside which food is placed which: is intended for immediate consumption either on the premises or outside the store, is usually consumed from the container, is ready for consumption without further preparation, in particular cooking, boiling or heating, including containers used for fast food or other ready-to-eat meals.
Caution! The environmental protection levy does not concern pla / cpla bioplastic items, as we found after a careful study of the relevant legislation. All Eco care items that consist of or contain bioplastic (pla / cpla) belong to the “biodegradable plastic” category and have all the necessary European certifications.

Biodegradable from sugar cane – top ecological options
Sugarcane plant, after the pressure it receives to produce the syrup, produces a lot of fiber. So the fibers that are created, instead of being thrown in the waste or burned, causing additional pollution for the environment, are washed and sterilized meticulously, at specific temperatures and result in the raw material for the creation of ecological disposable products.
Sugarcane biodegradables are an environmentally friendly solution and a great solution for greener options.
Sugarcane is a 100% biodegradable and compostable material, environmentally friendly, which decomposes in a short time. All sugarcane products are suitable for food contact and certified for composting (composting), according to EN13432 (European Composting Standard).
