Why it’s Important to be a Plastic-free Restaurant


Going plastic-free is a popular choice these days, but it is much more than just a trend, it is a responsibility at a time when the global impact of plastic can no longer be ignored. Plastic waste fills our oceans and clogs our waterways, harming marine life and the greater ecosystems. It’s an issue that has no borders, affecting communities across the globe, often with devastating effects and contaminating vital water sources.

At Samurai Sushi, we are prioritizing eco-friendly practices to do our part in reducing plastic waste. This aligns with our ethical values and also offers advantages such as reducing our carbon footprint, operating with cost savings, and giving our environmentally conscious customers another reason to feel good about their dining choices.

How Are We Helping the Planet?

We understand that making a difference requires us to take concrete steps to contribute to our goal. To that end, we have eliminated plastic from our dining experience and have adopted eco-friendly alternatives.

Bamboo and wood offer versatility and renewability. Bamboo is a fast-growing grass that requires minimal resources and is quick to regenerate, making it an ideal choice for our purposes. Wood is a great traditional material that can be sourced responsibly, providing a sturdy, durable option for utensils, packing materials, and more. 

By choosing to use wood and bamboo to replace plastic, we can contribute to greater sustainability. Unlike plastic and other non-biodegradable materials, they decompose naturally, eventually leaving no trace of pollution. 

At Samurai Sushi, we strive to create a world of dining that coexists harmoniously with nature.

Do Bamboo and Wood Change the Taste of My Food?

While we are committed to helping the environment, we are equally committed to providing you with the best dining experience possible, and that means protecting the exquisite flavours of our meals. Using these eco-friendly materials will not impact your favourite dishes, as wood and bamboo do not impart any unwanted flavours to the food. Every bite retains the flavour of the high-quality ingredients and nothing else. You can rest easy knowing that we will never compromise on our environmental responsibility or on taste.

At Samurai Sushi, you can enjoy your meal knowing that sustainability and delicious, healthy food go together.
