These Reusable Containers From Foodpanda's New Subscription Plan Are Both Chio & Eco-Friendly
If we were to list down some of the "new normal" practices, food delivery would be top of the list. Since a few months ago, the Covid-19 pandemic has taught us that we cannot eat the same kopitiam food from the market near our HDB blocks, and that we are actually experts in looking for hidden food delivery promo codes.
As the number of food deliveries and takeaways sky-rockets, so does the amount of plastic waste used for disposable packaging. Since the start of the circuit breaker prohibiting dine-ins, many Singaporeans have switched to reusable containers in a bid to reduce plastic waste. For the rest, however, it can be difficult to do so due to the convenience brought about by plastic disposables.
Lucky for us, Foodpanda has partnered with barePack to provide an alternative and more sustainable way of packing your food orders. It's a world first - a subscription plan for reusable food containers. Through this initiative, Foodpanda hopes to inculcate a zero waste mindset in its customers.
This thoughtful service is available to Foodpanda customers who subscribe to barePack and choose takeaway or delivery at participating restaurants. At the time of posting, these are the participating places:
All you need to do is to download the barePack app and subscribe to it, then use code 'BAREPACK' when you checkout at the participating outlets. After your meal, just follow the instructions on the barePack app to drop off the containers.
These containers come in Foodpanda's signature hot pink, and is perfect to 'gram your food in. And here's another bonus! Normal users of barePack will pay $5/month (or $36/year) for the subscription, but Foodpanda customers will get 50% off this plan by using the promo code 'FP50'.

While still in its pilot phase, Foodpanda aims to get at least 20% of all their F&B partners on board by end-2020. With such convenience, it's only a matter of time we truly make a difference!
