Let’s Make Serving Reusable Takeout Containers as Easy As Serving Disposables!

A Friendlier Company is launching their Reusable Takeout Container Service in London!

Over the last year, takeout has become a restaurant staple. It’s been a great way to support local businesses throughout the pandemic, but at what cost? Normally, many of these restaurants would serve their food in house on reusable plates that are washed, and reused time and time again. Unfortunately, takeout containers are typically single-use only and result in an enormous amount of waste. A Friendlier Company believes that this doesn’t need to be the case, and that takeout containers should be reused, just like the in-house dishes we’re used to.

A Friendlier Company is introducing a reusable takeout container program in London, so you can feel confident knowing that your takeout is not harming the planet.

Green Economy London invites you to join us for this exciting information session, where you can learn more about this program, and how your business can get involved!

Information Session Agenda:

A Friendlier Company’s co-founders, Kayli Dale and Jacquie Hutchings, will be going over how their reusable takeout container service works and taking questions from attendees. You will also hear from and interact with a restaurant owner who is currently utilizing the reusable container service in Guelph!

Reimagine Co will also be speaking during the session to talk about how they are implementing the reusable takeout container service at their store!

Measuring Business Impact

Hosted by Green Economy London and Project Neutral

Join Green Economy London and Project Neutral to learn about the importance of measuring the impacts your business has on the environment. This includes areas such as ghg emissions from heating/cooling and electricity usage, transportation related emissions, water usage, and the amount of waste your business produces. All of these factor into the overall impact your business has on the environment. Think about it, how can you track reductions if you don’t know where your starting point is? When you make your carbon footprint visible, it helps to define where to make changes and encourages people to want to make changes.

If your business is interested in aligning with the UN’s Sustainable Development goals, impact measurement is an important part in achieving these goals. Learn how to connect metrics that will help you meet the SDGs related to environmental sustainability.

Jake Miller from Project Neutral will teach you how to use the Project Neutral calculator to measure your individual environmental impact. This is a great opportunity to use this calculator as an employee engagement tool, and get employees onboard with your business sustainability goals.
