Making take out more eco-friendly
- Restaurants sign up to participate in the Eco-to-Go program.
- They advertise that they are participating in this program to their customers and let them know their to-go orders can be packed with no extras.
- When customers order their food from participating restaurants they order it “eco-to-go” and no extras will be placed in their bag.
If you have a favorite restaurant you order take out from, you should let them know about the Eco-to-Go program. Even if they choose not to participate, you can still choose not to have them include the extras with your order. When you order, just tell them “no napkins or utensils, please, just the food.”
