College Pub Offers Reusable Containers for Take-Out Orders

The pub is now offering plastic containers for its take-away orders. The containers cost $5 upfront, but the pub will discount a meal packed in them by 25 cents, helping users recoup the cost. Plastic take-away soup containers are available as well.

Bowdoin Dining Services initiated the program and Sustainable Bowdoin helped with initial research and advertising. “It’s been very well received so far — it’s easy to use and a great way to reduce waste,” Keisha Payson, director of Sustainable Bowdoin, said.
