Zero-Waste Fast Food? Tim Horton’s

Did you know that 20 Tim Bits fit perfectly in a 1.2 liter Rubbermaid container? This is one of the things I learned today at the local Tim Horton’s.

Making sure to ask that the coffee was poured directly into my own cup was my first task. Having heard stories of people’s to-go cups being filled by disposable cups had me worried. The employee today assured me that it only happens when you go through drive-thru. Being very clear in my wants landed me my intended goal – coffee, donuts and a cream cheese bagel without any waste. Tim Horton’s is similar to Starbucks as they do have ceramic options for eating in on. I wish they did have a fountain pop option though. All in all very successful visit.

Have a great weekend everyone,



Zero-Waste Fast Food? Extra

Here’s another zero-waste snapshot. This one marks my third zero-waste McDonald’s trip. Unlike A&W, McDonald’s has sure-shot cream dispensers rather that single serve creamers. This was a Mushroom Swiss Grilled Chicken sandwich combo. It gets easier everytime 🙂

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.
