bowl bank initiative

bowl bank

in 2021 recycling rates were under 50%

with over half of us placing items that could be recycled into our general rubbish bins, there's a considerable variation in how ‘household waste’ is handled + an increasing number of waste managers are burning plastic waste, causing air pollution, noise, smells, litter + traffic

our bowl bank initiative is aiming to tackle this issue

we're inviting you to return your packaging to your local wagamama restaurant. from there, our team will be on hand to accept your bowls, ensuring they are commercially recycled

in exchange for your clean take-out bowls, we'll give you a side on us, next time you dine in

this offer is currently available at all wagamama restaurants excluding delivery kitchens + airports + is only valid in the uk, excluding northern ireland
