Tim Hortons is set to introduce wooden and fibre cutlery in the new year — a move they say will eliminate an estimated 90 million single-use plastics a year.
The wooden cutlery and fibre spoon are both compostable.
In another move to reduce the use of single-use plastics, plastic lids on Loaded Bowls are also being replaced with fibre lids, Tim Hortons said in a release.
And beginning in early 2023, Tim Hortons restaurants will shift to a new breakfast and lunch wrapper with an efficient design that uses 75% less material than the prior wrap box, which is estimated to save more than 1,400 tonnes of material a year, Tim Hortons added.
Tim Hortons is also now trialing a fibre hot beverage lid that is plastic-free and recyclable. The goal of the trial, which will run for approximately twelve weeks in Vancouver, is to develop products that are alternatives to plastic and easier to recycle and repurpose while still offering a great guest experience.
“Through our sustainability platform Tims for Good, we’re always looking for ways, big and small, to make thoughtful choices on material and design in order to reduce and eliminate packaging and contribute to more sustainable innovation,” Paul Yang, senior director of procurement, sustainability and packaging at Tim Hortons, said in the release.
Tim Hortons restaurants will also eliminate the use of all single-use plastic bags and will begin offering guests reusable bags for purchase starting in January.
