All of us, customers! Let’s say no to single-use condiments and service ware, and instead use what we already have at home. Together, we can play a part in reducing waste.
Why: The ordinance is intended to reduce the amount of waste generated by single-use items, change customer habits regarding single-use items, and help restaurants reduce unnecessary costs.
When: The #SkipTheStuff Ordinance went into effect earlier this month.
