This French initiative is reviving the deposit container system

Reusable glass containers to reduce trash created by take-out orders. That's the service provided by this French initiative. And several restaurants have already adopted their system. This is how it works.

    Local cooperation, local sources, local jobs, sustainable and independent of outside, BIG CORPORATE influences. Perfect.

    Good job! I have wondered how it can be more profitable to produce and ship plastic utensile, than to simply use traditional metal utensils you can wash. I guess labor cost makes it more expensive, and then makes it more profitable to just throw away a shit ton of plastic instead.

    Won't work in 3rd world and sanitizing also uses water resources that in many areas are drying up. But a great idea in 1st world!

    This is a step in the right direction but a plastic lid? those lids break so quickly. One needs a different type of lid.

    We used to do this when I was a child...take our saucepans to the Chinese shop & they would fill it with whatever you ordered...

    Brilliant idea! The French are so good at that sort of thing. The Brits seem unable to even return glass milk bottles!

    No creen que esto es un círculo vicioso ??? Reutilizas trastes los cuales debes lavar gastando agua y utilizando jabón.

    Have you noticed that all the best ideas are people led? Governments and corporations only respond in a reactive way to consumer pressure, they don't innovate or be proactive.
