Even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, San Carlos Youth Center made a commitment to ditch all single-use disposables. The Youth Center will be ready to open with safe and sanitary reusables for their after-school cooking class! Their annual impacts are:
$719 annual net cost savings from not having to restock throw-away items
18,898 pieces of disposable items reduced
214 lbs of waste prevented
Working with ReThink Disposable was such a great experience! With their help, our Youth Center staff were not only educated but provided the resources to eliminate single-use disposable foodware and significantly reduce our daily waste. Thanks to ReThink Disposable we will be getting our after school participants into the habit of doing all we can to reduce our impact on the planet.
