One of my favorite businesses that helps me be less wasteful expanded in some exciting ways over the last few years. GO Box offers yearly subscriptions and started as a way to get takeout in a reusable container. A few years ago they expanded to New Seasons Market, first for their deli counter, hot bar and salad bar, and now their bulk department too. But during the pandemic, they started partnering with Imperfect Foods and now wash their cold packs (thanks to customers who encouraged the company to reuse). GO Box worked with Starbucks during their three month trial in Seattle with reusable cups (which meant 10,000 cups were kept out of the landfill). And now, the company is helping Loop (the company I profiled yesterday) with intake and reverse logistics with their reusable containers.
There’s a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes at GO Box and I’m excited to see who they partner with next.
