Deliveroo is continuing its sustainability drive by providing 50,000 eco-friendly straws for its delivery partners in the UAE.

Made from corn starch, the Avani Middle East straws are 100% natural, biodegradable, compostable, and recyclable.


Earlier this year, Deliveroo launched a cutlery opt-in feature within the app, which resulted in 90% of customers opting out, saving millions of pairs of plastic cutlery in select countries.

One of Deliveroo’s restaurant partners, Common Grounds general manager Anita Strother said: “Bull&Roo group is committed to distributing #IamNotPlastic straws throughout all of our restaurants. As a proud partner of Deliveroo, we are excited that they are joining this initiative full-on by providing these straws to us. This is something that all F&B operators should consider as we need to become part of the solution not the problem.”
