Big Bite Boomerang Program: reducing waste at events and markets
Tasmanian based Big Bite Dutch Treats, who trades from markets and events, is introducing the Big Bite Boomerang Program. Customers can now borrow real plates with real forks and spoons to have their Dutch pastries and ice creams in order to reduce waste.
Big Bite Dutch Treats (BBDT) is the first at Tasmanian events and markets to let the customer choose if they would like to use their own plate, compostable disposables or borrow a plate and cutlery from them. In winter season customers can borrow a mug for their Dutch hot chocolate. BBDT will do the dishes!
Already conscious of the waste that is produced at markets and events owners Richard and Melanie started thinking what they could do: “For us it was an easy choice, not only do we reduce waste by offering real plates and cutlery, but we enhance the treat eating experience: everything tastes better from a real plate with real cutlery!”
Big Bite Dutch Treats already welcomed customers to bring their own container or plate and hopes other customers will now choose to borrow a plate and return it when they are finished.
The Big Bite Boomerang Program will not be available at all markets and events due to safety restrictions or practicality.
Big Bite Dutch Treats is a small Dutch artisan bakery trading from markets and events around Tasmania and stocking at several shops in Launceston. They bake stroopwafels (Dutch syrup waffles) fresh on site, offer Dutch pastries and Dutch biscuits. In addition, at some markets and events they offer Dutch ice creams, poffertjes (little Dutch pancakes) and soon oliebollen (Dutch donuts)
