Use a Green Box TO-GO Container

two reusable green takeout boxes filled with food on a table

Choose refills, not landfills! Make your to-go meal zero waste. When you order a to-go meal at participating restaurants, request it in a REUSABLE GREEN BOX!

Starting January 1, food vendors will be required to charge a 25¢ fee for each disposable cup and takeout container provided with to-go orders. Avoid fees and eliminate waste: use 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, for free!
