Siem Reap takeaway in eco boxes
That box can be composted!
Inspired by our friends at Kampot Radio, we’ve put together this list of great places doing takeaway in biodegradable, natural boxes. Be sure that we’ll always encourage you first to take your own lunchbox or chan srak, but we all know those occasions where you get caught out, so here’s where you can get takeaway without the guilt.
Styrofoam or polystyrene takeaway boxes cannot be recycled, nor do they ever break down, they become a massive pollutant on the environment and there are suspected health implications from eating from them.
Let’s do our part and support businesses that are reducing their plastic impact on our planet.
- Cut it out! Do you need cutlery (knife, fork, spoon, chopsticks)? Or are you taking food home? You can avoid extra plastic and waste by using your own cutlery.
- Bag it! Do you need a bag or do you have a basket on your bike or a reusable bag with you? Avoid single-use bags whenever you can!
- Feeling saucy? Can the cafe put the sauce on your meal already? Avoid unnecessary little containers by seasoning before you go.
