Takeaway without the throwaway!
At Cauli we believe that plastic recycling is a temporary solution. 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.
CauliBox is the first step towards achieving the goal . The idea is a straightforward one - We partner with food-to-go outlets to build a circular economy by a network of reusable lunch boxes.
The Box Scheme is run with the following 5 key elements:
Pick up: Customers pick up a box from a partner outlet and order food; Outlets scan customer’s CauliApp to track box and apply discount.
Return: Customers return boxes washed or unwashed to outlets and self-scan App to track box.
Washing up: We collect and wash up boxes, and deliver professionally sterilised boxes to outlets and avoid cross-contamination.
Deposit: Customers pay a refundable deposit that entitles them to use 1-2 boxes at the same time.
CauliApp: Customers collect points each time using the box and can spend points on erasing their carbon footprints or In-APP purchases.
