Recommendations for how to take action

  • How To Start

    When using single-use food containers, choose recyclable or biodegradable options. Major retailers like Target sell paper options that are easy to recycle.

  • What Comes Next

    Invest in high-quality, reusable food containers. Glass, stainless steel, and silicon are all great options.
