At home or on the go, at the office or at school, every waste counts. The trick to reduce its impact: favor homemade and be well equipped to transport it. We tell you everything!
REDUCE OUR WASTE BY COOKING MORE.
A lot of our waste comes from food packaging: yoghurt pot, mayonnaise tube, plastic bottle of prepared dressing, etc. To lighten the trash – and the impact on the planet – why not cook it all at home? With good recipes and a little elbow grease, you'll quickly see that it's much better, much healthier and much less polluting!
It also avoids food waste, past best before dates and fridge clutter. For small condiments such as salad dressing, ketchup or mayonnaise, cook them in small batches, by the minute, to take advantage of the freshness of the ingredients and all their nutrients. Many foods can now be bought in bulk and allow you to remove disposable packaging from your bins. Remember to take with you shopping bags, bulk bags or jars to fill. It's just a matter of getting used to!
ZERO WASTE LUNCH BREAK: DINE IN AND TAKE AWAY!
Even on the go, at the office or at school, the best waste is the one you don't generate! Prepared meals or salads that have already been prepared are generally served in single-use disposable packaging that goes in the trash just seconds after use. For the lunch break, several solutions are available to us:
› Prepare good meals kept at the right temperatures.
A slice of quiche, a portion of risotto or some pasta with pesto, just enough to treat you at lunchtime. And hop, in the bento! If you opt for an insulated lunch box, your food can even be kept at the right temperatures while waiting for the lunch break.
› Take away but only if you are well equipped!
Didn't have time to cook last night? A short trip to the Food Truck between noon and two is a must. But not anyhow! Remember to take your lunchbox, your cutlery, your water bottle and even your cloth napkin for a well-deserved zero waste break. Know this, from now on each restaurateur must accept the meal box brought by his customers and serve it in it if he requests it. Sometimes, some restaurateurs even offer a discount, so why deprive yourself!
AT EACH MEAL, ITS QWETCH ZERO WASTE SOLUTION.
A MEAL TO TAKE? OPT FOR THE CATERING BOX.
Our Made in France Catering Box is designed to avoid any waste related to “take-away” food. You should know that in 2019, more than 200 million meals were delivered, generating more than 600 million single-use packaging ending up directly in the trash (Source: Ministry for Ecological Transition).
With its unique and quick closing system, the Catering Box can transport a couscous and its sauce, a burger and its fries or a fresh and gourmet bò bún without leaking. Its single wall in recycled French stainless steel does not allow it to be insulated, however, this lunchbox is light and slips easily into any backpack or handbag.
CHOOSE BENTO FOR YOUR SOLID MEALS TO KEEP HOT (OR COOL).
Do you know our bento? With its two secure clips, its removable compartment and its insulated double wall, the bento box is the ideal accessory for transporting meals to the office or to school. Food is kept hot for 5 hours and cold for 7 hours. Prefer solid meals such as a dahl of lentils or a pan-fried vegetable. Its removable compartment even allows you to add an appetizer or a piece of cake for the greediest. To be transported horizontally, it will take place at the bottom of your backpack while patiently waiting for the lunch break.

From the colorful pattern to the nobility of stainless steel, the choice is yours. Its double insulated wall allows it to keep hot for 5 hours and cold for 7 hours.
QWETCH PRIVILEGES HEALTHY MATERIALS
To eat better, drink better and infuse better on a daily basis, Qwetch offers sustainable products designed with healthy materials. One of our flagship materials: stainless steel, which in no way alters the organoleptic properties (colour, smell, flavor) of food while remaining neutral in the face of temperatures, which is easily cleanable, which is resistant to shocks and corrosion and which is infinitely durable.
After only a few years of life, a plastic lunch box, a "tupp" or an aluminum lunchbox must be changed because these materials, and in particular plastic, are harmful. They contaminate food and drink by releasing microelements and endocrine disruptors when microwaved. Opting for stainless steel or glass means opting for good health! Our products are also tested to meet European and French food contact standards as well as the requirements of the European regulation REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals) aimed at protecting consumers from harmful chemical substances present in consumer goods.
