[ARCHIVED] Greener To-Go Event, January 11th - 13th

The Millburn Township Green Team is participating in an innovative program to reduce plastic and Styrofoam consumption by putting sustainable take-out packaging options into the hands of local restaurants. A collaborative event, involving restaurants in Millburn (LaStrada), Maplewood (Cactus Charly) and South Orange (Ariyoshi), is scheduled for the weekend of January 11th-13th, 2019. Funds were provided via a grant from Sustainable Jersey to purchase the eco-friendly packaging. Each restaurant will be supplied with sustainable take-out packaging and reusable tote bags to reduce the number of disposable plastic take-out containers and plastic bags in the municipal waste stream.If you order take-out from these restaurants between January 11th–13th you’ll get a reusable shopping bag to keep along with dinner and you’ll show restaurateurs that sustainability is a factor in your purchasing!
