Uber Eats launches sustainable packaging pilot in Toronto and Vancouver

Sustainability

Uber Eats collaborates with Suppli and Reusables.com for sustainable packaging pilot in Toronto and Vancouver.

Uber Eats, the leading delivery platform in Canada, is proud to announce the launch of sustainable packaging pilot programmes in Toronto and Vancouver, aimed at tackling the issue of single-use plastic waste. In collaboration with local companies Suppli and Reusables.com, Uber Eats is determined to become the first global delivery tech platform to champion the transition to more sustainable packaging, not only for its own merchants but for the entire restaurant delivery ecosystem.

With a vast network of tens of thousands of merchants and delivery partners across the country, Uber Eats holds a unique position to contribute to a greener future. Building upon its recent commitment to achieve emission-free deliveries globally by 2040, Uber is now focusing on helping merchants eliminate plastic waste from their deliveries by 2030.

As part of the pilot programme, Uber Eats users in Toronto and Vancouver will have the option to select reusable packaging from participating merchants, starting later this month. Dozens of merchants have partnered with Suppli and Reusables.com to offer zero-waste takeout options to Uber Eats customers. Leveraging the extensive reach of Uber Eats, this partnership will enable more merchants to provide reusable packaging choices to a wider customer base than ever before, while also facilitating easier access for new merchants seeking to adopt reusable packaging solutions.

Lola Kassim, General Manager of Uber Eats Canada, said: By supporting nearly one million restaurants worldwide, Uber Eats is uniquely positioned to make a difference. But we know that delivering a carbon-neutral platform is a challenge bigger than Uber. We're firm believers that climate is a team sport and that's why we need policies in place that make EVs, e-mobility and sustainable packaging affordable and accessible for everyone.
