You won’t find plastic at healthy food restaurant Skinny Genie. Opened in October last year, the straws are paper and drinks are served in glass jars. Even the takeaways keep up with this theme – containers are made from 100 per cent glass, whether they’re ordered in store or for delivery. If you’re making a purchase, expect reusable cotton bags instead of plastic. In the future Skinny Genie is planning to stop using straws entirely.
