Reusable Food Containers

Restaurants working with customers for sustainable development and food consumption? Doesn’t sound that crazy! Well, the past week a little bird told me about this amazing idea that our friends from ReTak had about working altogether to decrease the amount of containers (mainly styrofoam) used in the food industry. How? Based on an app, customers and restaurants that offer efficient solutions as these reusable containers, will be connected and will interact with a third party (supplier) in charge of delivering clean containers to the restaurants and receiving the used ones from the customers.

Do you feel keen about knowing more about this idea? Well, during the Smaka på Stockholm or a “taste of Stockholm” festival taking place in Küngsträdgården 5 – 10 June 11 am-10 pm , you will be able to test this in real life, and will be handed out food samples in the recyclable boxes for trial!… is free entry! Remember that is vital that we decrease our consumption in these type of non-biodegradable materials such as styrofoam, based on the fact that by 2050 it is estimated that there will be more plastic in the oceans than fishes 🙁

Want to be an active member of this idea? ReTak will love to have volunteers to help them during the food festival with some ideas about the design and implementation of how the booth is going to look like. If you would like to take part with them, contact me! 😀
