(SPOT.ph) By now we're all pretty aware of the simple, everyday measures we can take to reduce our plastic consumption. Your go-to iced coffee comes in a plastic cup? Bring a tumbler. Need a straw for your milk tea? Use a metal one. However, even when you take the time to live a more conscious lifestyle, every once in a while you may still find yourself in a situation where you just can't avoid single-use plastic, especially when not all local establishments cater to the zero-waste lifestyle. Fortunately, more and more brands are stepping up their game and becoming conscious of their carboon footprint like beauty companies allowing customers to use refillable bottles, coffee shops encouraging people to their own tumblers, and as we most recently spotted, restaurants offering free cutlery! Yup, you read that right: If you drop by SM Foodcourts from now until August 25, you can get their Eco-Cutlery Kit for free with your meal!
For a minimum spend of P250 that includes any Coca Cola-product, you can get a pretty, pastel-toned cutlery set, which includes a spoon, fork, and a pair of chopsticks. After that, you can keep the set forever and bring it with you everywhere so you never have to waste plastic spoons and forks. They even come in a handy case so you can keep them right in your bag.
Here's a closer look:
