The Golden Gate Restaurant Association, in partnership with Upstream and the San Francisco Department of the Environment, is hosting a free, interactive livestream event on Thursday October 28th at 2:30pm to demonstrate why Reusables Win in San Francisco!
Joining host Marcia Gagliardi (yours truly!), restaurant owners Rocco Scordella of Tootsie’s at the Stanford Barn, Vanick Der Bedrossian of La Méditeranée, and Anh Nguyen of Cam Anh as we talk about how switching to reusables was one of the best decisions they made for their customers, the planet, and their own bottom lines. Those interested can register here.
Participants will also hear from Paul Birkmeyer of Dishcraft and Maia Tekle of Dispatch Goods, whose companies offer brilliant systems allowing food service businesses to incorporate reusable containers in their take-out and delivery operations.
Additionally, Grace Lee of ReThink Disposable will share details of the organization’s assistance program that helps restaurants vastly reduce waste, increase efficiency, and achieve enormous savings, too. This Bay Area-based nonprofit has helped over 250 restaurants switch to reusables while achieving significant savings and reducing waste.
Help us spread the word! If you know any food service operators in the Bay Area, send them this link and encourage them to join us (if you are one, please sign up!). You can also visit @tablehopper’s Reusables Win post on Instagram to tag a favorite Bay Area restaurant. Not only will it inform them of the event, it will help them understand that customers are eager to see business owners take the lead on environmental change.
Register today! I really look forward to “seeing” you there! We must diminish the sea of plastic foodware we’re all drowning under.
All registered participants will be emailed a link to join the livestream prior to the event. Reusables Win in SF is presented in partnership with Upstream, an organization dedicated to finding real world practical solutions to plastic pollution.
