Go Box PDX
August 9, 2011
I love food carts! The great thing about them is that they have a high stumble upon factor. For instance, walking around downtown Portland OR you can’t throw a stone without hitting a food or bike car so your choices on food are excellent, but unfortunately your choices on to go containers are not. Extra packaging with food cart food use to push my eco-guilt buttons, well no more, because now we have the Go Box service. The Green Living Project mobile tour team interviewed Go Box’s founder Laura Wiesse while traveling through Portland. Laura explained how Go Box partners with food carts to offer customers a reusable container service that is convenient, brilliant, and affordable. Customers pay a one time fee for a subscription and get their food with a reusable container, and then return the containers to drop location to be washed they’re given a Go Box token for their next container. It’s simple, it’s cheap, and it will stop all lot of unnecessary waste from ending up in landfills. Go Box was recently featured on the Sustainable Business Oregon blog and is growing fast. Finally, more food cart food, less food cart trash!
