Restaurants Please think Green! Use Less Packaging for Take Out Orders.

Think about how much garbage comes with one take out order!

It is really important that we all communicate with our favorite restaurants and take out places that we want less packaging with our orders. With all the problems in the world today this may not be a number one priority but without much effort you can help the environment and reduce garbage in our landfills at every meal.

If you would like to share your comments or innovative solutions for the food industry please post.

Some Simple Basic Ideas!

Simply ask your favorite restaurant to use LESS packaging for your take out order!

Ask For One Bag! We don't need paper and plastic for our chinese take out!

Ask your pizzeria to line the bottom of the box so it is free of food then it can be recycled

Take plastic utensils, napkins, paper plates, straws, paper cups, extra menus, salt and pepper, ketchup, duck sauce, mustard, and soy sauce only if you are going to use them.

Wrap items in foil then you can reuse when reheating.

Use Eco friendly products

Please recycle and throw away trash. Do not throw trash out your car window.
