In Calgary there are 60,000 restaurant takeout orders every night, which produces about 240,000 single-use containers per night. No matter how we try to separate and do the right thing, most are going to landfills.
Earthware is offering Calgarians the opportunity to affect real change by using a return-for-reuse zero waste takeout container program. Restaurants, hotels and grocery stores are embracing the opportunity to reduce the over 150 million takeout containers, plastic and compostables, that will end up on our streets and in the landfill this year.
Our reusable container solution is the best option for reducing waste and is far superior both environmentally and economically to recycling and composting.
Earthware is a social enterprise that directly impacts several of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Stop 1,000,000 single-use containers from going into our landfills by 2025.
Offer a superior solution that eliminates the need to use single-use containers.
A solution that is easy to implement for restaurants, provides a solid, beautiful container to showcase their amazing food.
We want to provide Calgarians a takeout container option that is easy to use and return so they can enjoy their food with a light heart.
