Canada’s largest and most trusted food delivery network has announced the launch of a pilot with Vancouver-based reusable packaging company ShareWares.
“Through our partnership with ShareWares, we’re thrilled to work with our restaurant partners who are looking to provide a greener alternative to single-use packaging,” says Steve Puchala, Senior Vice President, Growth & Restaurant Success, SkipTheDishes.
“This sustainable option will allow customers to enjoy their favourite dishes from local restaurants, without worrying about the waste. To thank customers for reducing their environmental impact, all ShareWares orders made during the pilot will also come with free delivery.”
The pilot will first begin in Kitsilano with participating restaurants offering reusable containers for delivery and pick-up orders.
All ShareWares containers have a QR code for customers to easily locate the closest drop-off location, which ShareWares will then bring to its washing facility in Olympic Village to be thoroughly sanitized and redistributed.
“The strength of Skip’s technology and extensive delivery network makes them an ideal partner as we further our mission of implementing a city-wide reusable container program,” said Cody Irwin, Founder and CEO, ShareWares. “We anticipate this pilot will be a great success and look forward to the expansion of our offering in more restaurants and neighbourhoods in the new year.”
