Thinking about the future of our planet is incredibly important to Grazia, so we take great joy in shouting about regional eatery Urban RetrEAT's brand-new green initative.
Throughout August, diners who bring their own plate, container or cup to the Yas Mall venue in Abu Dhabi will be rewarded with 20 per cent off their bill at the end.
Some reports say that the UAE generates more than 6.5 million tonnes of waste a year, which is the equivalent of 1.2 to 1.3 kilograms per day and among the world’s highest. With this in mind, Urban RetrEAT has pledged to do their part in the UAE’s efforts to cut down on waste packaging materials such as food boxes and coffee cups.
Having recently opened its doors in June, Urban RetrEAT is home to 12 rotating food vendors, including Joe’s Sliders, Tawa Bakery, Casa Latina, Chez Moe and Hue Pasta. The discounted bill is redeemable at all food vendors in the venue. We approve!
