To-Go Ware

A Sustainable Partner

Who They Are

Humans create a massive amount of waste from their use of disposable bags, bottles, utensils, and other items that are used once and throw “away”. To-Go Ware decided that they wanted to change this systemic waste by creating a brand that enables people to transport their food and utensils in a sustainable manner. Founded in 2004, To-Go Ware strives to provide products that are safe, affordable, and innovative. For too long the “to-go” culture has been parallel to the “throw-away” culture. To-Go Ware is breaking this bond, and taking an important step towards a sustainable future.

Why We Like Them

To-Go Wear’s emphasis on sustainability is visible throughout their entire line of products. Every material they use is both intentional and eco-friendly. To create their utensils, To-Go Ware uses sustainable bamboo, which replaces the petroleum-based plastic that’s typically used in single-use flatware. They also utilize recycled PET fabrics, which are made from plastic water bottles, adding an additional eco-friendly element to their sustainable lifestyle products! To-Go Ware also uses stainless steel, which provides an element of durability that provides a long-term replacement for plastic food containers or baggies.

As a fellow B Corp, To-Go Ware has committed to uphold some of the most rigorous standards for social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. They’re also Climate Neutral Certified, meaning they’ve undergone an extensive process of measuring and offsetting their overall footprint to achieve net-zero (or better) carbon emissions! To-Go Ware’s initiative to deviate from the environmentally destructive practice of single-use plastic is setting a strong precedent for a sustainable future.

As a member of the grass family, bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth. It requires no irrigation, pesticides or fertilizers to grow, and can be harvested within 3-5 years, as compared to approximately 30+ years for traditional hardwoods. Bamboo is extremely adaptable and produces more oxygen per acre than large tree species, while using a fraction of the water to grow. Its durable and lightweight qualities make bamboo a great alternative for hard wood products!

Recycled PET utilizes salvaged post-industrial PET scraps and post-consumer products such as water bottles and other plastic containers. These plastics are dried, crushed, and spun into yarn in order to create recycled PET fabric, or polyester. By providing a use for recycled plastics, companies encourage recycling programs worldwide, while adding new value to discarded items. Currently, over half of virgin PET production goes towards making textiles, so by utilizing recycled PET, post-consumer materials are both diverting waste while taking the place of raw materials. This helps to reduce the demand for the extraction of oil, as well as energy used to produce new synthetic fibers.
