An award-winning Lancaster fish and chip shop has joined other eco-friendly takeaways in their bid to reduce their plastic intake. Hodgson’s Chippy has taken charge of their packaging choice and converted to biodegradable boxes. They join other businesses across the Lancaster and Morecambe area who are taking steps to become more environmentally friendly. The chippy, on Prospect Street, has started to use bio boxes, which are produced from a renewable and sustainable sugarcane bi-product.
“We have been testing various packaging choices for some time now and the bio-boxes have proved to be a great choice,” said co-owner Nigel Hodgson. “They keep the food in perfect condition, the batter and chips stays crisp and hot! “Our customers can now recycle the used packaging in their recycling collection boxes – all helping to create a more sustainable and eco-friendly Lancashire.”
