We’re thrilled to announce that Oceanic Global has named Just Salad an Ocean Champion.
Oceanic Global is an ocean conservation nonprofit that partners with brands and policy makers to curb the use of single-use plastics. They award four tiers of badges to recognize sustainability achievements, including the Ocean Champion badge given to Just Salad.
Oceanic Global said: “Just Salad are pioneers in the movement to implement a reusable culture for takeaway containers, in addition to which they have eliminated single-use plastic bags and adopted sustainable back-of-house solutions including composting — among taking other actions for our planet and ocean.”
Up to 13 million metric tons of plastic enter the ocean each year, and only 9% of all plastic ever produced has been recycled, scientists and researchers estimate. Just Salad is committed to reducing single-use plastic in its stores by promoting reusable options, including our signature Reusable Bowl. In 2019, we introduced bagless checkout and pickup and began separating food scraps for composting.
