The last time I attempted zero-waste fast food sushi it was not very successful. They added plastic grass and wax paper. After that I promised I would make an attempt at another sushi place. Today was that day. Battle – me vs. plastic grass.
One thing that I cannot stress enough when attempting zero-waste fast food is to really explain what you want v-e-r-y clearly. I explained that I did not want anything other than the actual food. I explained that I didn’t want any plastic grass or saran wrap. I even took the opportunity to ask for no chopsticks. Imagine the amount of disposable chopsticks thrown away each year. They were really cool about it. A younger woman took my order but an older woman made my meal. She asked me if I wanted some wasabi and ginger. I asked for just some wasabi. If ginger was put in my containers it would be a waste. I am not a fan. What a perfect example of a zero-waste fast food meal. There was no waste. It is all in my tummy! Yum yum.
If you want ways to reduce your waste but still want Slurpees, McDonald’s, A&W and other fast food restaurants then read all of my zero-waste fast food adventures under the zero-waste fast food category on my home page.
Where should I try next? I was thinking maybe Burger King or Wendy’s.
