In UPSTREAM's Throw-Away-Free Communities, we create and cultivate the business and policy conditions for reusable to-go businesses to start, thrive and scale.
Dining in? No problem. You eat on a REAL plate, with REAL silverware and drink out of a REAL glass. Taking out? No problem. You use a reusable take-out boxes and reusable to-go coffee cups.
During our first phase, we are partnering with vanguard communities in the Bay Area, New York City and Boston to develop models to spark innovative businesses and common sense policies throughout the country.
