Will This Sustainable Takeout Box Reduce Waste?
Most of us are guilty of not packing our own lunches and ordering takeout (almost 5 times a week). With so many empty takeout boxes waiting to be dumped, our environment suffers from immense waste piles. In order to address this issue of waste, Go Box SF was born to help restaurant offer reusable takeout boxes. The first Go Box launched in Portland, OR, and has already found success. Hence, SF founder Paul Liotsakis hopes for the same result for California. For those that are unfamiliar with the Go Box system, this is how it works. Participating restaurants get stacks of clean boxes for anyone who comes in who has signed up for the program. After customer finish their food, they drop it off in the nearest collection bin. The boxes will be picked up, washed and be returned to the restaurant. In my opinion, this sounds like a promising system to reduce waste. The campaign to fund the program just ended a couple of days ago, so it looks like people are responding well to this idea. What do you think about this sustainable takeout solution? Would it last?

i'm one of those people that hardly have time to cook and end up ordering takeout. Honestly, I think this would be a great system if people can be dedicated to this.
