From eliminating plastic straws to bringing reusable cups, restaurants are continuing to find new ways to waste less.
In a new effort to become more eco-friendly, some chains are suggesting customers bring in their own dishes! Just Salad, a fast casual salad restaurant, offers a monthly fee where people can bring their reusable bowls to get discounted salads. Paying the monthly fee discounts the price of their salads from $11.75 to $9.75. You just have to remember to bring your bowl every time you go.
“There’s a big uptick in people who are willing to carry around reusable containers. It’s becoming the standard,” said John Oppermann, executive director at Earth Day Initiative.
