Zero-Waste Fast Food?

Zero-Waste Fast Food? A Bagel Place

It seems like quite a lot of small independent fast food places use styrofoam. No doubt that the more environmentally friendly choices cost a bit more. I wonder how many businesses have silently lost customers that do not want to buy fast food that comes in styrofoam. The bagel shop that I visited only had styrofoam as an option.

Of course the visit began with me asking if they would put their food in my container. Also they make their sandwiches on a piece of paper so I asked them not to. The bagelwich I chose was on special that day and came with soup. Unfortunately I did not bring an extra container for soup. They offered me coleslaw or potato salad instead but I had to decline that too because they were already portioned in plastic. The employee gave me a 50 cent discount for using my own container!

I can not stress enough that it becomes easier and easier to ask each time. Would you be willing to try zero-waste fast food?

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.
