DONT BLOW YOUR LID is a new initiative launched by Burger King that aims to reduce plastic waste in their restaurants.
Burger King has announced that they will be removing all plastic lids from soft drinks (soda, milkshakes and frozen)* served to customers when dining in a Burger King restaurant nationwide.
This permanent change will make Burger King the first quick service restaurant in the UK to take this bold step, which is predicted to remove almost 17 million plastic lids from circulation and save over 30,000kg of plastic every year.
Moto is proud to support BK on this initiative and their target to reach 0% single-use plastic by 2025, as well as working towards all packaging being re-usable, recyclable or compostable.
Why is it important to cut down single-use packaging?
Single-use items can only be used once, before being thrown away. It contributes to plastic pollution, making it harmful for the environment. This step from Burger King is predicted to remove almost 17 million plastic lids every year.
Will lids be removed from all drinks served at Burger King UK?
This initiative includes all soft drinks served in BK cups when dining in-restaurant. This includes milkshakes and frozen drinks. At present, this will not include hot drinks, or drinks served via delivery, takeaway or drive-thru due to health and safety precautions.
If customers want a lid, can they request/get one?
Yes, if a customer needs a lid for their drink, they can request one from a member of staff in-restaurant.
Will lids be removed from bottled drinks available at Burger King?
No, lids will not be removed from bottles served in Burger King restaurants.
