FOODPANDA, the on-demand food delivery service in the Philippines, continues its #GoGreen initiative by partnering with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines, for its #AyokoNgPlastik movement. The movement aims to combat the overuse of single-use plastics in the day-to-day lives of people by encouraging the use of more sustainable materials.
Starting next month, everyone has the option to join the movement when opting out for plastic cutlery and choosing to donate P1 or P5 per order to help WWF-Philippines in its battle against plastic waste.
“We, at foodpanda, believe that the partnership with WWF-Philippines strengthens our vision for the #GoGreen campaign. I am excited for this collaboration, as we are talking about two pandas colliding and joining forces to help decrease the use of plastic,” says chief executive officer for foodpanda Philippines, Iacopo Rovere.
To date, foodpanda has almost 10 percent of its restaurant partners participating in the opt in/out cutlery across its three key cities: Metro Manila, Metro Cebu and Davao. By partnering with WWF-Philippines, foodpanda will be able to increase the reach and impact of its #GoGreen campaign.
“Together with foodpanda, we will continue to paint the world green (and pink),” shares president of WWF-Philippines, Jose Angelito Palma.
With this partnership, foodpanda hopes to make a difference in the way plastic waste is perceived and reduce the overall environmental impact of food packaging waste. Foodpanda encourages its patrons to consider opting-out from cutlery to help reduce plastic usage and help WWF-Philippines’ movement. PR
