Sustainable Lafayette Takeout Symposium

Sharing solutions for individuals and restaurants on the path to less wasteful takeout

On Thursday, June 17 Sustainable Lafayette, in partnership with the Lafayette Environmental Task Force and ECOlunchbox, held an online community gathering exploring the challenges and solutions of restaurant takeout.

  • Have you noticed how single-use take-out containers create a lot of trash?

  • Do some of your favorite restaurants offer compostable solutions? Do tell!

  • What can an eco-friendly diner do to be part of the plastic pollution solution? 

  • Is there a Styrofoam ban or other policies protecting against excessive takeout trash in Lafayette and nearby cities? 


In a series of rapid-fire presentations on Zoom, we discussed these topics with a local restaurant owner, the developer of a trashy takeout phone app, a recycling expert with Republic Services, a high school environmental activist, a Lafayette Environmental Task Force member, a zero waste business leader and Sustainable Lafayette board members.
