Porcelain bowls to fight waste on trains in Germany

Deutsche Bahn wants more “stability”. And it will start with a strong measure. From January 1, 2023, passengers of the German railway company will be able to drink their coffee or enjoy their meal in porcelain or glassware. “(They) will be able to choose high-quality china and glass as food and beverage options for their bar car.”, it is said in the company’s message. The purpose: reduce waste by replacing single-use plastic or cardboard utensils. Cups, plates or bowls “reusable” will be “free, no deposit and available on demand for all orders” on mainline trains, the public rail operator claimed.

With this, Deutsche Bahn is in line with the new regulations that came into force in Germany on January 1st. This obligates restaurants, bistros and cafes to offer their products in leading-edge, reusable packaging. Single-use packaging will not be prohibited, but a reusable option must be offered at no additional cost.

Deutsche Bahn wants to become ‘carbon neutral’

“Deutsche Bahn accelerates its ecological transition in domestic catering”, welcomed Michael Peterson, a member of the board of directors of Intercity Passenger Transportation, quoted in the press release. The carrier has been offering it since last March “50% vegetarian or vegan dishes”as well as “100% organic product”.

More generally, Deutsche Bahn, Germany’s largest energy consumer, has set itself the goal of becoming “carbon neutral” By 2040. Currently, 62% of the rail traffic operated by the company is powered by renewable energy, according to a spokesperson.
