Reusable containers as a service

How it works

Why reusable food containers?

Single-use food storage containers account for a remarkable amount of trash every year. Banning certain types of single-use containers, recycling and using recycled content are critically important but are not solving the foundational reason we have waste and the depletion of the finite resources.

Reuse, on the other hand, preserves the embodied energy originally used in manufacturing an item, it saves environmental pollution by not creating any waste, it reduces the need for raw materials and saves cost as same material is used again.

Although creating a reusable container in the first place requires more energy and resources than one that’s single-use, over time it has a lower environmental and economic cost, as it doesn’t need to be remanufactured on every use.
