Zero-Waste Fast Food?

Zero-Waste Fast Food? Cineplex Odeon

According to a co-worker of mine who used to work at a theatre, the most common food bought at the movie theatre is Popcorn, Candy and Pop in a combo. They also sell nachos, hotdogs and all sorts of other things so I think it counts as fast food eating. One theatre in Alberta even has its own Tim Hortons. My Husband and I went to go see Horrible Bosses. Pretty funny and surprising movie. We always get a snack to munch on while watching a movie. I came prepared with my cold to-go cup and our Simpsons Movie popcorn bucket bought from the same theatre. Also, knowing that the only option for candy might be from a vending machine, I brought a Rubbermaid container. In the end I did not buy any candy. I did present my bucket and cup to the boy at the till. He wasn’t that sure about the procedure with the bucket. At first he was thinking it was a free refill. That would have been awesome! Anyways he ended up getting me my food – no waste involved. I do think that for the size of my cup I should have been charged a small instead of medium but that’s an argument for next time. All in all this was very successful. Zero-waste theatre dates just need a little preparation.

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.

  1. Hey, I don’t have a popcorn bucket like that… I was thinking of doing a freezer bag because I can wash it out and reuse it and just getting a small size because it’d probably fit. That or just smuggling my own in.
