Gino's Gelato has swapped 90% of its packaging for sustainable alternatives
A great decision from the ice-cream company.
Gino’s Gelato have announced that they are going green, swapping 90% of its packaging for sustainable alternatives.
The company also aims to be 100% sustainable by 2020.
The Irish company already sources all of its milk from organic farms in Ireland, and have already swapped around 5 million plastic spoons, tubs, cups and waffle and crepe containers with fully biodegradable replacements.
So this positive step isn't the first of its kind from the ice-cream makers.
“It struck me that we sell millions of tubs and plastic spoons each year and this is where we started making changes,” explains Gino’s Gelato founder Jonathan Kirwan.
“We strongly felt that it was our responsibility to lead the change in this area. We are taking responsibility for our own environmental impact and putting in the work, so that our customers don’t have to. I now want to make our shops as efficient and environmentally friendly as possible.”
“Overall we want our customers to know that choosing Gino’s this summer, means choosing a guilt-free, Irish treat."
Gino's joins a long list of companies who are making changes to their in an attempt to improve the way they affect the environment.
