Green Trends: Foodservice Contractors Adopt Reusable To-Go Containers

Lately, college and university accounts of Gaithersburg, Md.-based Sodexo and Philadelphia-based Aramark are seeing their green efforts head right out the door with the introduction of reusable takeout containers. Students can purchase a plastic “to-go” container from campus dining halls for use in transporting their food; they’re asked only to rinse it once they’ve finished eating and then return it to a dining hall at their next to-go meal—at which point they swap their container for a clean one that dining services has run through a dishwasher.Aramark debuted its reusable to-go containers on several campuses in fall 2008; at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, disposable-container use dropped 40% over the course of the school year, Aramark reports. Sodexo launched its reusable-container program, called Green with Envy, this fall and estimates that the containers could eventually reduce disposable waste on campuses by as much as 80%.

    I purchased the Chinese take out containers in clear for Christmas gifts, GET-EC-03-CL. I am going to fill them with shiny wrapping paper and Hershey Kisses! I think they are going to be the cutest addition to my annual Christmas calendars I hand out to the family every year. I just need some chopsticks to go along with the containers. RECYLE!! DON’T LITTER!

    Hey there,

    I too got the interesting green trend in last winter and found it completely useful and cute. It is a kind of best idea to serve as restaurant equipment!
