Quiznos Launches 'Greener' Packaging

  • February 24, 2010
As part of its broader "Eat Toasty, Be Green" campaign, Quiznos is introducing more environmentally friendly packaging.

The chain's stores now use 100%-compostable, wax-coated paper cups; salad bowls made from renewable sugar cane; plastic lids made of 30% post-consumer-recycled PET bottles; napkins made from 100% recycled material and fibers (90% post-consumer) and catering lunch boxes made from 100% recycled paperboard (35% post-consumer).

The chain is also helping employees to begin shifting to uniform items made from 100% recycled soda pop bottles. Each hat saves approximately six bottles from reaching a landfill and each apron saves approximately 25 bottles, according to Quiznos.--Karlene Lukovitz
