With over 441 million single-use cups and takeout containers thrown away in Metro Vancouver each year, it's clear something needs to change. Single-use plastics are plain wasteful and "compostable" plastics aren't working as they were intended to.
People want to do the right thing, and in this case, it's using reusables. Whether that be encouraging customers to bring their own mug, providing reusable dine-in dishware, or offering a cup/container-sharing program, like ShareWares! 😉
