Plastic Love

A plastic fork takes over a 1000 years to decompose - yet we only use it once. So much unnecessary waste is created in New York and across the country when we order take out. America produces 25 percent of the worlds garbage, how much of that is unnecessary food packaging?

The Eco-To-Go program has already launched at participating restaurants in New York City; the concept being that when you order takeout, you should advise the restaurant that you want your order to be Eco-To-Go.

Restaurants will respond by delivering the food, with no extras, such as unnecessary napkins and plastic utensils, as you have all you need at home. It also hopes to encourage restaurants to use greener packaging.
