Vegware at Airports Going Green

This year’s Airports Going Green conference is being held November 12-15 in Dallas Texas at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. We’re pleased to say we’ll be exhibiting throughout at the conference offering Vegware as a sustainable packaging solution.

A range of social, environmental and economic topics will be discussed at the conference and we’re excited to be part of it.

Our plant-based packaging is an ideal food packaging solution for closed systems like airports. Vegware catering disposables are compostable and designed to be recycled with food waste which means there’s no need to clean, sort or separate any of it prior to recycling.

Our unprecedented engagement with the waste industry allows us to work with waste haulers to ensure compostable packaging and food waste is collected for composting. We’re also the experts at providing on-site composting solutions.

If you’re attending the conference make sure to come by our stand and say hello!
