As part of the new sustainability movement, a number of restaurants are joining the effort by offering “reusables.” Such restaurants provide the option for customers to do either take-out or take leftovers home using the company’s reusable containers, with a refundable deposit. The eatery may also give a discount to “for here” customers who bring their own cup, utensils and plates, just as we have gotten used to getting a cash credit for bringing our own shopping bags. Search your community for participating reusables restaurants, then patronize them and be sure to thank them for reducing their plastic footprint! And if you are a restaurant owner, be sure to advertise your reusables policy far and wide, as it is becoming very popular to do the right thing by the planet and your business will benefit.
