Forever Ware is a Minneapolis startup offering a new type of takeout container that you can borrow and return from restaurants and grocery stores in the Twin Cities. This helps to reduce the amount of disposable packaging that comes with takeout. Hennepin County awarded Forever Ware a business recycling grant to fund the initial purchase of their reusable fleet and get the program kicked off with local businesses.
Participating is easy – you pay a $5 deposit to have your takeout orders packaged in Forever Ware when you place your order in-person, over-the-phone, or online at participating businesses. When you're finished, return your container to any participating vendor to get your deposit back or swap your container for free with your next order.
Forever Ware is currently available at Butter Bakery Café, Namaste Café, and Roots for the Soul in Minneapolis.
