7 Eco-Friendly Restaurants To Order From

July 30th, 2021 at 10:57 am

Food delivery services have always been popular – even before the pandemic, we indulged in the variety and convenience of food delivery applications, such as GrabFood and FoodPanda, that allowed us to enjoy our favourite meals in the comfort of our own homes. It comes as no surprise that the demand for these flexible food delivery services has surged since we’ve had to stay indoors to curb the spread of the virus. Although it has helped some restaurants stay afloat, it has also accelerated the consumption of single-use plastics.


In 2019, Malaysia banned single-use plastic straws and imposed a plastic bag charge for customers of all businesses. Less than a year later, when the coronavirus broke out, that progress was reversed due to health concerns and fear that reusable items could spread the disease. This makes it crucial for us to make more eco-conscious decisions and become ethical consumers, like ordering from restaurants that have embraced sustainable practices or choosing not to use plastic cutlery on GrabFood.


To make your search for eco-friendly restaurants easier, we’ve compiled a list of seven F&B businesses you can support that champion the cause through sustainable packaging, plant-based meals, and promoting an environmentally-friendly lifestyle.
