1000 Flowers for the Planet - #620 Use a Tiffin
This is such a cute idea, which comes from India and other Asian countries, where family members take hot lunches to loved ones in a little carry pot. The lunch is called a Tiffin and the container a Tiffin carrier. The idea has taken off in Melbourne, Australia where an enterprising business provides hot meals delivered around the CBD in Tiffin carriers, which can be purchased outright by the end user and swapped over on a daily basis when lunch is delivered. They make the deliveries by bicycle. What a great idea!
Tiffin carriers are made from various materials, including plastic of course, but you can get all-metal tiffins if you’re living a plastic free or plastic ‘less’ life. They make a fantastic alternative to most other takeaway lunch containers, which are usually made of single use plastic – using fossil resources and creating plastic waste and landfill. See how a Tiffin carrier could fit into your life.
