Act For Impact
The Origin Story
WHY… 50% of the plastic used in the U.S. is used just once then thrown away. Americans discard more than 30 million tons of plastic a year. Choose to buy reusable.
We might be recycling well at home now but how eco-friendly are we when we are out on the move? Disposable utensils, plastic straws, paper napkins, styrofoam food containers….the list goes on and likely when you dispose of these out of the house it is not being recycled. Keep yourself ready for snacking anywhere anytime with our zero-waste food on the go kit. Everything you need to snack without destroying the planet. Bon appetite!

To-Go Ware brings common sense to the convenience of our “to-go” culture. By providing people with sustainable solutions and healthful alternatives to plastic waste, they hope to make the “throw-away” mentality a thing of the past.Their utensils are made from renewable bamboo, which is made to last and provides a long-lasting, non-petroleum based material that has endless applications for use. To-Go Ware’s RePEaT and Kids utensil cases are made of RPET, recycled plastic bottles. Plastic soda and water bottles that would otherwise end up in the landfills are given a second shot at a useful life by being recycled into this amazingly strong, color-fast and water-resistant utensil holder.
