The Dobar Tek food delivery service (dobartek.hr), the only Croatian-owned online food delivery service, is available in Šibenik, Split, Zagreb, Kaštela, Zadar, Solin, Sesvete, and Sinj. It offers more than 150 restaurants and is used by more than 100,000 registered users, reports Dalmatinski Portal.
To celebrate their 8th birthday, as part of the #EnjoyOffline initiative for a #PlasticFree Adriatic, they continue to preserve the cleanliness of the Croatian Adriatic.
Last year’s promise, which stated that every dobartek.hr order results in at least one plastic bottle less in the Adriatic, has been kept.
For a year now, part of the funds from dobartek.hr orders have been set aside for cleaning the coast and marine world.
Nebojša Veron, the founder of dobartek.hr, said they had collected over 35,000 kuna that will be spent as part of the initiative.
“We are immensely grateful to our customers and partner restaurants who supported the #EnjoyOffline initiative for a #PlasticFree Adriatic! Although at first glance it seems that several people who make up one food delivery service cannot make a significant difference – they certainly can! By recognizing the importance of the initiative and raising awareness of the plastic waste surrounding us, we have already made a big step towards a cleaner Adriatic. Our work is not just about that, but we have been encouraging all our restaurants in recent years to increase the use of paper packaging, and we are trying to provide them with the same,” said Veron.
After last year’s cleaning action of Koločep in cooperation with Maritimo Recycling, this year they will continue with ecological actions, including cleaning Žnjan in Split, Molunat in Dubrovnik, and Drvenik.
They are joined by an experienced team of divers from UPA Rostrum from Split. The association itself is already known for its highly valued and strenuous environmental actions carried out to preserve the cleanliness of the seabed and beaches. UPA Rostrum is an excellent ally in the fight against plastic waste because it brings together excellent divers, has the right infrastructure, and has extremely great knowledge of cleaning the coast and seabed.
As mentioned, dobartek.hr celebrated their 8th birthday and on that occasion announced volunteer actions of cleaning the beaches as part of the initiative #EnjoyOffline for a #PlasticFree Adriatic.
“We invite everyone interested in joining the initiative, either as partners or volunteers, to feel free to contact [email protected].“
