Did you know a new Reusable Takeout Container Service is Coming to London? It's time to Reimagine Takeout!
Over the last year, takeout has become a restaurant staple. It’s been a great way to support local businesses throughout the pandemic, but at what cost? Normally, many of these restaurants would serve their food in house on reusable plates that are washed, and reused time and time again. Unfortunately, takeout containers are typically single-use only and result in an enormous amount of waste.
It doesn't have to be like this! There's a better way! We are partnering with A Friendlier Company (AFC), a startup which has a run a pilot reusable container program in Guelph and is now bringing this to London, starting in the next month or two!
Do you know any restaurants or other food businesses who would be interested in taking part in this program?
With AFC's model, businesses don't pay extra to be a part of the program and can actually save money, as well as benefitting from additional traffic generated by AFC's app and marketing efforts.
Alongside AFC and Green Economy London, we invite London businesses to join us for an exciting information session, where you can learn more about this program, and how your business can get involved!
Information Session Agenda:
A Friendlier Company's co-founders, Kayli Dale and Jacquie Hutchings, will be going over how their reusable takeout container service works and taking questions from attendees. You will also hear from and interact with a restaurant owner who is currently utilizing the reusable container service in Guelph! Heenal Rajani, co-founder of Reimagine Co, will also be speaking during the session to talk about how we are implementing the reusable takeout container service at our store!
When: Monday February 22nd, 2021 1 pm - 2 pm
Don't miss out on this opportunity to learn about how you can make your business more sustainable!
However, following careful consideration, we have decided to remain online-only throughout June. This means that both our 211 King St location and our Western Fair District Market location will remain closed and will not reopen until July at the earliest.
For the health and safety of our community members, our customers, and our staff, we will be postponing or cancelling our upcoming events.
In our shops, we will also be stepping up our cleaning procedures to ensure extra precaution for the safety of both our community members and our staff.
Please stay tuned for updates on events in April and our store hours, as we will make changes based on the health unit’s recommendations.
We have some big news to share: Reimagine Co is going to be leaving our current address on King Street at the end of January. We intend to move into our beautiful new space in the Fall. Read on for more details of the changes, the refillery delivery service, and where you can find us after January.
