The Re:Dish Reusable Container Program for Companies and Businesses

When it comes to business, “going green” is no longer a catchphrase—it’s a stakeholder expectation.

Companies and businesses across all industries want their employees to know the steps they’re taking to improve operations, reduce carbon footprints, and meet environmental goals. Using Re:Dish, you can show that sustainability is important to your business, with a simple, turnkey, yet affordable reusable dishware and food container service that eliminates single-use disposables.

Benefits of Introducing a Reusable Food Container Program:

  • Reduce your carbon footprint and significantly reduce waste generation

  • Demonstrate to employees your commitment to sustainability on a daily basis while introducing a better dining experience

  • Contribute to your company’s broader environmental goals and ESG reporting requirements

  • Eliminate the cost and volume requirements associated with disposable products

  • Lower your operational cost by reducing waste hauling expenses

  • Inspire employees to take other environmental reductions measures in other parts of their lives

Here’s How the Re:Dish Reusable Food Container Program Works in Your Company:

1.    The Re:Dish team will work with you to find the right solution for your company or business, including the right inventory for your food preparation needs, and a delivery and collection schedule that works for your organization.

2.    Re:Dish replaces your single-use wares with durable, reusable containers that are cleaned and sterilized to the highest standards. Your employees enjoy their meal as they would normally.

 

3.    After eating, employees and staff simply empty the containers and place them in any of the Re:Dish Drop-Off Bins distributed around your property, including in cafeterias, lounges, breakrooms, pantries—anywhere your employees eat.
 

4.    Re:Dish collects the used containers for washing and sterilization at our industrial,

state-of-the-art warewashing facility. We restock your inventory as needed, to ensure you have

a seamless supply of clean containers.

  • Available in a variety of sizes and styles
