Every day at Hesburger restaurants all over Finland, Estonia and Latvia, hundreds of kilograms of French fries are deep-fried in vegetable oil. After being used, the vegetable oil is collected from every Hesburger located in Finland, Estonia and Latvia for recycling and use as a biofuel. Biofuel is used as ship fuel, among other things.
Oil is collected in a way that is as environmentally friendly as possible: the same trucks that deliver new raw ingredients to restaurants also take away the used oil, thus eliminating unnecessary trips.
Since the beginning of the autumn of 2014, Hesburger employees have been wearing items from a uniform line, which is made using ethical production methods and environmentally friendly materials. For the uniforms, the company uses raw materials, such as polyester manufactured from post-consumer recyclable plastic bottles.
Ecodesign and outdoor table sets using old uniforms
All of the Hesburger uniforms and advertising materials that are not used any more are recycled and re-used. The outdated uniforms are made into outdoor tables for the restaurants. Hesburger flags that are in good condition, but no longer needed, have been turned into a unique recyclable product line with the help of an eco-designer. The unique design products are used as a reward and incentive for Hesburger employees.
