Support Local Restaurants and Reduce Plastic Pollution

Category : Uncategorized

Starting May 20th, greenUP! will feature a special program to help customers support local businesses while reducing their environmental footprint.

Due to COVID-19 measures, restaurants have shifted their focus from in-house dining services to offer more takeout options. While these to-go programs allow customers to enjoy local foods from the comfort and safety of their own home, the packaging waste of these take away meals is starting to add up.

Participating Green Dining District restaurants are offering reusable bamboo utensil kits to help offset packaging waste: customers can skip the plastic eating utensils and opt to bring home reusable bamboo utensils instead. 120 reusable bamboo utensil kits donated by the Nevada Department of Environmental Protection will be distributed to Green Dining restaurant customers.

The 4-piece kits include a bamboo spoon, fork, knife, and pair of chopsticks, all bundled in a convenient carrying case made from post-consumer recycled plastic materials, to be used again and again with favorite to-go meals.

Participating restaurants include: Cucina Lupo, Gather, Scoups Ice Cream and Soup Bar, So Juicy, Squeeze In, and The Union.
