Did anyone really ever give the contents of a "doggie bag" to a dog?
Regardless of who consumes the contents, we take our take-out containers home, throwing the bag and any other containers in the trash. Which goes to a landfill.
Ashland recently instituted a pilot project called "Rogue To Go," which offers reusable containers for people picking up meals to take home.
A short list of restaurants are participating.
The Talent Zero Waste Team is making a parallel move in neighboring Talent, with a program called BYO (for Bring Your Own, as in containers and utensils and more).
