In 2017, Portland International Airport launched a pilot program called the Green Plate Program, giving travelers and employees the option of having their food for here and getting their meals on reusable plates and utensils. That pilot program was a success so at the end of this month, the Green Plate Program will become official at PDX. The airport has been working to reduce landfill waste for years with donation and recycling program, but this program focuses on waste reduction. During the pilot program, there was a 73% reduction in to-go packaging waste, 374 pounds of food waste collected and composted, and 10,000 dishes reused.
