 Savor the Taste 
 with Zero Waste

Join the Paradigm To Go reusable take-out container program


We love good food

But not the waste that comes with take-out and delivery, or the cupboard filled with old containers, or the "eco-guilt" of knowing that what we put into the recycling will likely end up in a landfill rather than getting properly recycled.
So…we've created a reusable food container program that makes zero-waste fun, easy, and convenient!
As soon as you sign up and become a member you can order from any restaurant or food vendor in our growing network and receive your order in high-quality containers that help keep your meals fresh.
When you’re done, simply return the container to your local 24/7 collection kiosk or restaurant return bin (where available) at your convenience.

 Why we do it 

One of the biggest environmental issues we face with take-out and delivery is single-use disposables. Whether we use recyclable, compostable, or biodegradable food containers, the waste and recycling systems cannot effectively sort and send them to the proper recycling or composting facilities. As a result, they end up in landfills, incinerators, or back in our neighborhoods, parks, forests, creeks, rivers, and oceans. 
Every time you choose to use a Paradigm One container, you're helping to stop single-use pollution, keep our communities clean, support local economies, and create a more beautiful (and flavorful) world!
