Do you love street food but hate single-use packaging? CauliBox is building a network of reusable lunchboxes in London that you can borrow for free.

Our crowdfunding campaign on Spacehive is LIVE right now! Help us bring CauliBox to more locations in London - fund us now here!

UPDATE: With the generous support of Veolia and our supporters, we are now at 85% of our crowdfunding target so that we can build 20 drop-off points and work in 8 street markets in Westminster by end of 2019 to early 2020.

 
 

Mission

CauliBox is building a circular food economy through a network of reusable lunch boxes.

We partner with food-to-go outlets and reward customers and businesses on their environmental behaviours with the help of technology and data. Our aim is to realise a world that fits our motto: Takeaway without the throwaway.

UK's lunch-on-the-go habit is creating nearly 11 billion pieces of packaging every year. A survey on 1,200 UK office workers says more than half of them were buying takeaway lunches more than they used to five years ago, generating an estimated 276 items of waste per person per year (BBC News, 14 May 2019). Hectic city lifestyles mean that consumers often have to choose convenience over the environment.

Plastic recycling is a temporary solution. While recycling is an important aspect of a circular supply chain, only ⅓ of UK’s plastic food packaging is recycled. Plastic can only be recycled limited times, and without systems to restrict production of plastic, the severe environmental impact of plastic production and disposition cannot be avoided.

A lack of standardisation and digitalisation in the supply chain means that any single food-to-go business cannot tackle the issue of plastic food containers alone. We need an industry-wide solution and CauliBox is just that.

How it works

CauliBox is a digitally-enabled reusable box scheme that rewards sustainable behaviours. It is a reusable lunch box scheme that is a win-win-win for customers, vendors, and the Earth.
