Welcome to Das Tiffin Projekt, a Berlin based initiative to reduce waste produced by take-away.
We have all contributed to the unnecessary mounds of packing waste and feel bad about it, but we don't want to stop enjoying the convenience of a spontaneous take-away meal. We knew it must be possible to still indulge in a delicious takeaway meal but not have piles of plastic and aluminium foil when you’re finished. Indeed it is, we have started a local initiative called Das Tiffin Projekt aimed at keeping toxic plastic away from your food.
Its very simple. In participating partner restaurants you have a choice between a conventional disposable packaging and our Tiffin Box. You can decide spontaneously on the spot which you prefer. You can either use our uncomplicated rental system and borrow inside the restaurant a clean stainless steel container. Or, you can simply purchase your take-away food as you normally would receive it in plastic or aluminium packaging. There is also the third option of buying your own Tiffin Box on the spot. The stainless steel box provides plenty of space for your entire meal, is robust and has a convenient carrying handle (Which means no need for a superfluous plastic bag). This way you can reduce waste and help the environment in a simple day to day task.
And don’t worry, the return is simple and straightforward: after enjoying your meal you can dispense the box back to your partner restaurant when you’re ready, be it later that day or later that week. In India, these containers have been used daily for over 100 years, so why shouldn’t we benefit from the advantages of Tiffin Boxes?
