Following an initial trial, the London Borough of Tower Hamlets has made a further purchase of custom-printed Street Food Boxes as they continue to lead the way in adopting reusable food to go packaging across all eleven of their food markets across the borough.


An amazing two days at this very busy exhibition. The reaction to my controversial presentation about Compostables was fantastic with many members of the audience shocked at the facts.

And some brilliant  and very engaged visitors to our stand, many of whom we are looking forward to working with imminently.

At Street Food Box® we believe it should be easy for everyone to enjoy fabulous street food and food to go without feeling guilty about adding another throw-away carton to our ever-growing waste mountain. So we are heralding the change from single use to re-use for food to go packaging by making this super-easy to do.

Our mantra – Eat, Rinse, Sleep, Repeat® – is simple for a reason, because the only real solution to reducing food to go packaging waste is reuse rather than recycling and through its ease of use, Street Food Box is revolutionising how we think about food to go packaging forever.

What a great couple of days with my business partner at this exhibition. Very much full on with lots of boxes sold and a great deal of folow up work to do.

We were delighted to both present and exhibit at this excellent, 2 day event.  The response from attendees to Street Food Box was universally positive and many new conversations are underway across the globe.

And we're looking forward to taking part in the first, consumer sustainability show on 15-16th October 22 at the Business Design centre, Islington, London.

Here's a video of our highlights:

Fantastic to see Scotland pushing ahead with another vital element of moving towards greater sustainability in food and drink packaging.

This follows on from a pilot started last year to charge a deposit on single use drink bottles to encourage their return to specially designed recycling collection points.

Well done Scotland, but England, we need to pull our finger out!

We're thrilled to share that Street Food Box have entered into a partnership agreement with City to Sea, the leading organisation promoting reuse. You can read our joint press release here:

This is the future of take-away packaging. Innovative new takeaway box to tackle plastic pollution.

Street Food Box, a new super-compact and foldable takeaway box made from PRIPLAK®, has today announced a new partnership with the charity City to Sea to stop plastic pollution from entering our oceans.

The innovative takeaway box scheme is made from a patented indestructible polypropylene that is wipeable, microwavable and dishwasher safe and as such can be used over and over again eliminating the need for single-use plastics.

City to Sea, who campaign to stop plastic pollution at source, found that over 11 billion items of takeaway food packaging are thrown away each year. This equates to 276 items per person every year. Unsurprisingly, packaging from takeaway food and drinks such as disposable coffee cups and takeaway containers are littering our streets, parks, rivers and beaches and are now consistently in the top 10 items found on beaches in the UK and Europe.

Street Food Box® comes complete with a set of environmentally-friendly polypropylene cutlery, a reusable, washable napkin and a durable, washable waterproof pouch in which to store everything. At the end of their very long life, all the items are 100% recyclable.

Street Food Box was created and founded by Eddie Stableford. Commenting on the new partnership he said,  “Our product is designed to reduce the amount of single-use plastics in our food system. But I am really proud that through sales of our boxes, we will also be supporting City to Sea’s award-winning campaigns that are already saving hundreds of millions of pieces of plastic every year.”

Chloe O’Keeffe, Partnerships Coordinator at City to Sea added, “You can’t talk about tackling plastic pollution without talking about massively upscaling reusable packaging. Innovative new products like Street Food Box are making reusable options easy, practical and desirable for consumers. This is the future of take-away packaging.

She continued, “The food-to-go sector has a massive environmental footprint. It is a much bigger challenge to embed refill and reuse culture than it is for eat-in settings. This is why we need new innovations in the market to help consumers choose to transition away from single-use towards reuse and why we are so proud to be partnering with Street Food Box.”  Eddie Stableford added, “My inspiration for what is on the surface a simple idea, was a growing frustration from seeing the appalling volume of food packaging that once used, was destined for landfill because the use of plastic laminates and coatings combined with food residue means that recycling isn’t possible. Constantly manufacturing, transporting and disposing of single-use packaging makes no environmental sense.

And whilst compostable materials have been seen as somewhat of a panacea, the reality is that it’s simply a swop of one material resource for another and provides no benefits in terms of energy reduction used for manufacturing and freight. In addition, the supposed biogas benefit from compostable doesn’t stack up either if you consider the energy required for the composting process in the first place. Street Food Box® offers a unique solution to a UK-wide problem. And I’m delighted to say that Street Food Box is manufactured in the UK which minimises our carbon footprint further compared to current, imported, single-use solutions.”
