At Birdware, we are on a mission to eliminate disposables and single-use plastics from the food industry. We believe in a world where food packaging is fully reused, where food tastes better, and the earth feels better.
Since covid started there has been 6x the surge on plastic waste specifically due to take out and outdoor dining, less workforce and plateware phobia. While eco-friendly compostable is a great step forward they require facilitation for the compost to actually perform accurately and most of the time compostable end up in trash. Plastic waste contributes to horrific climate change. 
Birdware aims to invest into creating a zero-waste reusable food container system to eliminate single-plastic use and create a shared reusable economy. Birdware is to build the operation and logistics of providing reusable containers to clients, customers to use reusable and birdware is in charge of collecting, cleaning and returning them to them back to the client.
We enable businesses to conveniently adopt reusable packaging that reduces waste, saves money and enhances food experience 
The growing market of delivery and take away
After the outbreak of COVID 19, delivery and take away is presenting restaurants with one of the only ways to grow in a segment marred by fierce competition, tightening margins and labor shortages. Experts have found that consumers buy more food via delivery than they would in-store, and are increasingly demanding the service.
Delivery and take away became overnight normalized in many places in the world. There is a growing need for social distancing, saving time, a growing need for convenience, and delivery solves a lot of these problems specially for millennials.
However, the growth in delivery services in the food industry has an exponential growth in single use items (food containers) producing a lot of waste. The excessive consumption of single use containers in the food and restaurant industry contributes to environmental disasters. Landfills are filling up. Enormous islands of floating garbage are created by ocean currents threatening marine wildlife. Recycling has been the “go-to” method for dealing with the issue but it simply isn’t working.

Some restaurants, festivals and food events organizers are shifting to alternative materials like paper or other types of plastic in an effort to be “more sustainable”. However, this practice is still producing a lot of waste and takes a lot of space in the city trash cans and waste facilities. The lack of knowledge and information makes it difficult for the food industry  to implement better solutions to the single use problem.
52% of plastic waste is dominated by single-use plastic
8 million tons of plastic are dumped in our oceans every year
91% of recycle plastic never gets recycled
At this rate, my 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean.
We empower businesses to effortlessly embrace reusable packaging by bringing back the milk man model.
