ReThink Disposable is a technical assistance program that helps food service operators reduce waste, including plastic pollution into our waterways, while cutting costs by replacing disposable packaging items. Whether you are a caterer, a mobile food vendor, host events, or run a restaurant, café or institutional kitchen, ReThink Disposable can help you:

  • Reduce disposable food service ware costs
  • Improve the dining experience
  • Prevent litter near your location
  • Keep local waterways clean
  • Be a greener business or organization and reduce waste
  • Lower waste collection service costs

We provide hands-on support by ReThink Disposable staff for small food business operators, including sourcing and pricing alternatives, logistical solutions incorporating the new system, before and after assessments of waste reduce and money saved, and assistance in finding funding for the one-time purchase of reusable items.

Organizations large and small are saving thousands of dollars each year, and winning over diners in a whole new way with sustainable solutions. We also partner with local and state governments to innovate new programs and policies to meet waste and litter prevention goals, reducing pollution in local waterways and beyond.
