Zero-Waste Dinner: Bring-your-own-container & cutlery (BYOCC) dinnertime meetup

This is an opportunity for Zero Wasters to meet up at a fast-casual restaurant and order food BYOCC (bring-your-own-container-and-cutlery) style. The objective is to bring restaurants' awareness to the BYOCC movement and our desire for zero-plastic takeout options. We'll also get to know each other and discuss Zero Waste topics over our plastic-free dinners! Need some inspiration? Check out these blog posts on zero-waste takeout: https://www.goingzerowaste.com/blog/zero-waste-takeout http://zerowastememoirs.com/baby-step-22-zero-waste-to-go-kit/ https://www.andreamariesanders.com/30-day-zero-waste-challenge/26-bring-your-own-to-go-container See you there!
