Use a Green Box TO-GO Container

Do you find yourself picking up food in single-use cardboard, plastic, or styrofoam to-go boxes when you are on the run? Ever wish there was a zero waste alternative?  The Town of Truckee has launched a reusable to-go container program. When you order a to-go meal at participating restaurants, request it in a REUSABLE GREEN BOX!

How does it work?

  • Buy your first green to-go container for $5.
  • Rinse the box after you finish eating.
  • Bring the box back to trade for a clean one with your next order at any participating restaurant.
