Island Grill Boss Urges Govt to Make Environmentally Friendly Packaging Cheaper


CEO of Island Grill, Thalia Lyn, says the government should lower the duty on environmentally friendly packaging, to offset their higher cost in light of the announced ban on single-use plastics and styrofoam.

Island Grill has been one of the trailblazers in the use of green-friendly containers.

However, Lyn says there’s a heavy cost attached to the importation of the eco-friendly packaging.

Ms Lyn says she’s also hoping to hear more on what products will be considered acceptable in making the exempted plastics used by companies.
