Clean Water Action’s Lunchbox Project
June 12, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Lunchbox Project is part of ReThink Disposable, Clean Water Action’s campaign to target the 67% of street litter (food and beverage packaging) that ultimately becomes creek and ocean litter. CWA does this by promoting reusable foodware as much as possible. They have piloted with several restaurants and have proven that restaurants can save up to $5,000/year just by switching to reusable products in place of disposable ones.
The Lunchbox Project gathers the masses together to purchase lunch in their own reusable containers in a way that attracts attention and inspires others to do the same. Just show up with your own cup, containers and utensils, and be ready to be seen. This is a spectacle not to be missed!
The event is Thursday June 12 from 12-1pm at the Fruitvale Village Farmers Market, 3301 E. 12th Street, Oakland, located steps from the Fruitvale BART station, map)
