Since mid-December, tasty smoothies are available in environmentally friendly cups in our student restaurants and cafeterias.
The material is made out of renewable resources, it is biodegradable, food safe and heat-resistant. The cups are made out of polylactic acid (PLA)."Sustainability is an important topic for us," explains Uwe Kubaile, head of student restaurants and cafeterias at Studentenwerk Leipzig. "We are aware of our responsibility and consider aspects of sustainability not only in regards of cooking. Not only the origin and cultivation as well as preparation in our kitchens and the right handling of unsold foods play a big part. But also the packaging." Incurred expenses due to this change will temporarily not be added to the prices.
Smoothies in our student restaurants and cafeterias are prepared on a daily basis. They are made from fresh fruits and vegetables and no sugar is added. More than 700 Smoothies of various sorts are sold per day by Studentenwerk Leipzig.
