FUEL YOUR BODY, NOT POLLUTION: THE RISE AND THE PROBLEMS OF ONLINE FOOD DELIVERY (International School in Bahrain)

Whether it is a cheaper way of packaging goods or an invader of our ecosystems, it is no secret that plastic has become a part of our daily lives. Its role has been accentuated with the pandemic; especially in Bahrain, alongside other UAE countries through the increasing popularity of online food delivery. Although plastic is a very efficient way of keeping food fresh and preventing spills, its life doesn’t end on our dinner table. With on-demand culture taking over the world, Bahrain too has jumped on the ‘order in’ bandwagon. However, is the convenience worth the cost?

Three minutes of pleasure, three centuries of pollution. An order of merely three desserts with ice cream. (Taken by authors of this article.)
