Dining Out without Eating Resources

Last night my family went out to eat at a pizza restaurant. I hadn't been to this particular restaurant in about 3 years. The food was good, but I was really disappointed to find that:

  • all of the plates were paper (no non-disposable plate option)
  • our plastic (disposable) cups were made from #6 plastic (not food safe)
  • all of the cutlery was plastic
  • sauces were served in #6 plastic (disposable) containers
I told my husband that we need to start packing some kind of "emergency dining-out kit" that includes reusable plates, cups, cutlery, bowls, cloth napkins, and drinking straws.

If you are an entrepreneur, I would suggest you begin putting together some kind of kit like this in an organic cotton drawstring bag.

Here are the types of things you might include:
Viola! Green on the Go!

I think the last time we ate pizza in, they brought us paper plates too. They did bring other dishes and our drinks in regular washable dishes though. (including glass drink cups)

Thank you for visiting my blog, I appreciate it :)
