aluna solutions logo The Impact Box is a project that addresses the problem of plastic waste. It aims to reduce the use of plastic in handling food and help clean the plastic waste that already pollutes our oceans. We manage to reduce the amount of plastic containers used in takeaways by reusing the Impact Box, a non-disposable lunchbox made out of rice husk in our participating restaurants, we also create awareness about the health risks from eating in plastic recipients and we generate donations to Tangaroa Blue. This is only the beginning. We will be working with our participating restaurants and other partners to get rid of any plastic waste from the restaurants in Australia. Contact Form
