Join us at 4pm on Tuesday August 12th at the South Berkeley Farmers Market for a Lunchbox Project day of action!
Ever wonder what happens to all those lunchtime to-go containers?
We did too. It turns out that 95 percent of plastics in California end up in the landfill instead of the recycling bin. Think of all of the salads, sushi, and sandwiches served to-go in a plastic container each and every day…it adds up to a staggering amount! More than 30% of total waste in the U.S. is containers and packaging!
Once we did the math, the solution became clear as that plastic clamshell holding your side of fries. The solution is us. Just as the reusable grocery bag represents a simple yet powerful fix for the problem of the plastic bag, the reusable lunchbox container is an idea whose time has come. Order your chicken teriyaki in a Tupperware instead and reduce the amount of plastic plodding toward our landfills, gutters, and the ocean.
