Why choose reusables?

Reusables are safe.

Reusables do not spread COVID-19. There are zero documented cases of COVID-19 surface transmission. Washing and drying procedures meet global standards to ensure safety.

Reusables save money.

Reusables pay for themselves in just a few months. The average savings for a small business is between $3,000 and $22,000 per year. What’s more, reuse can help build brand loyalty with customers.

Reusables save the planet.

Consumers demand sustainable options to enjoy their favorite eateries. Reusable foodware reduces plastic pollution and has lower environmental impacts than single-use options.
