barePack has been on a mission since 2019 to end single-use takeout containers in Singapore. But the war on waste doesn’t end here. It now has plans to shake up the foodie scene in Paris.
Need takeout, but don’t want the waste? We hear you. Even though you may have the best of intentions, it’s all too easy to forget your reusable cup, cutlery set, lunchbox, or insert other reusable paraphernalia here. And we could all do without the guilt trip of contributing to the waste issue. Even if your container is supposedly an ‘eco-friendly’ biodegradable or compostable option, it’s still a single-use disposable that doesn’t solve the root cause of the issue. Which is why barePack’s Singapore launch left us squealing “a solution; at last!”. And since then we’ve been eating zero-waste at over 70 restaurants across the Red Dot (including via Deliveroo and FodPanda).
And the amazing news is…
Thanks to barePack’s success in Singapore, it’s now launching in *drumroll please* Paris!
Exciting news alert: barePack France is has just launched! (Hence the French, don't forget to turn on captions for English) Thanks to its genius reusable containers and cups, conscious customers now have access to a sustainable alternative to single-use packaging. Which means you can grab your favourite takeaway minus the guilt of contributing to the waste issue. The awesome companies involved in this vid:UlulemonbentoPalika PokeFoucade ParisPhoodKEÏLI

New to the barePack party? Here’s how it works…
barePack makes it convenient and easy to takeaway with zero-waste. To get involved, download the barePack app and select the membership level that suits you. All new sign-ups get a one-month free trial so you can try before you commit. You’re now all set to check out reusables from the ever-increasing number of food partner vendors in Paris. And once you’ve scoffed your food, simply return your reusables to any barePack drop site.
But does it really make an impact?
In short; yes. barePack’s reusable system enables a 90% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to other commonly used disposables. In Singapore alone, half a billion plastic disposable items (like takeout containers) are wasted each year. But if one business (comprising 200 employees) made the transition to barePack, it would save 3.5 tonnes of plastic waste per year. And in France, there are five billion cups and 300 million plastic boxes thrown away each year. Yikes. And now barePack need your help to solve the waste crisis in Paris. Be an early supporter by contributing to its Ulule campaign now and help turn France zero-waste. Psssst…. this is a solution that’s clearly needed and wanted in France. After only two days, barePack reached its funding goal. But, you can help make an even bigger impact by continuing to support the cause.
