Coop Switzerland Replaces Plastic Tableware With Palm-Leaf Alternative

Coop Switzerland has introduced palm-leaf tableware and paper straws in 900 outlets in the country in a bid to reduce the use of plastics.

Eco-Friendly Alternatives

The new launch will offer customers the option to choose eco-friendly tableware and straws.

The palm-leaf bowls and dishes are made of leaf sheaths from fallen leaves, and the production process meets all sustainability guidelines.

The 'Oecoplan' range is waterproof, heat-resistant up to 220°C, neutral in taste, and can be composted after use.

Paper Straws

The retailer has also launched eco-friendly paper straws as an alternative to
the plastic version.

The paper straws are sustainably produced with renewable raw materials and are made of rigid paper for strength and durability.
