Zero-Waste at Eateries
Since we’ve been busy setting up the store, we’ve been relying more on local eateries for meals and snacks! So we snapped a few shots of how to go zero-waste when eating out or picking up food to avoid throw-away wrapping or single-use bags…
Here’s a Pyrex baking dish in action at Quack’s 43rd Street Bakery – holding croissants, scones, and a couple cinnamon rolls. Perfect way to avoid small paper bags and wax wrapping!
We’ve also used a Pyrex baking dish for large orders of breakfast tacos and sandwiches. Makes for a great display.
Reusable Produce Bags
Here we are again at Quack’s – this time with produce bags. Each mesh bag worked great for different types baked goods, and all the bags fit nicely into a larger bag for easy toting.
If you’re dining on-site or nearby, a plate works great. We regularly bring plates across Manor Road to Taco-Mex for breakfast tacos, and have some foldable plates to bring with us for an easy zero-waste solution.
This particular sandwich came from Jimmy John’s on Red River; they’re not local, but it was nice to see a larger chain be happy to accept a zero-waste alternative. Every time you precycle by bringing reusables, you show folks how easy zero-waste is (and have some great conversations!).
