Needless Waste at Subway
Yesterday I visited the Subway restaurant on the 16th Street Mall downtown, (409 16th Street,) and noticed that the cold cuts are now being cuddled in these individual paper/cardboard trays.
Every other Subway I’ve visited keeps the cold cuts in stainless bins, and while making the sandwich the “sandwich artist” either eyeballs the amount or weighs it on a scale. (I assume depending on the management.)
I appreciate Subway wanting to be democratic in their distribution of cold cuts, and I’m sure the pre-portioning of these helps the bottom line, but over time these hundreds and hundreds of little trays add up to a lot of needlessly disposed of garbage!
Do any other stores do this? I haven’t noticed it at the Cherry Creek Subway, which I visit more frequently, but if this is multiplied by the thousands of locations that’s a lot of trash created for a really unnecessary reason.
How about returning to the stainless bins and scale for measuring amounts? It only adds about two seconds to the process. Let’s have the employees control the meat without wasting all this paper. Please?
I’ve sent this in and we’ll see if I get a response.
