Our mission is to make the world a better, cleaner, and less wasteful place ... and we’re starting with takeout containers. We want to eliminate the waste created by disposable takeout food containers by making reusable alternatives available and attractive to everyone. Why? Because we believe people don’t want to create unnecessary waste, but that they simply haven’t been presented with sufficient alternatives to the convenience of disposable products.
While we are trying to disrupt the market for disposable products, we also recognize that our solutions must be economical and scalable in order to succeed. So we strive to design reusable takeout container (RTC) programs that meet the needs of people and foodservice providers.
