    Went to the Brooklyn food trucks smorgasbord and searches far and wide for recycling bins but there weren’t any, dismayed I asked and was told all plates and utensils were compostable!
  • Reflection Question
    Food Use Reusable Utensils
    How can you be an advocate for using resusables instead of disposables for the rest of your community? Where are they currently dependent on disposable cutlery, and how can you convince them of the need for change?

      When you bring your own re-usable utensils, container, cup, or whatever to a take-out or fast food place, do they allow you to use your re-usables or do they say it's unsanitary and make you take their plastic stuff? I don't know because I never tried.
