Are you passionate about the environment?
Bon Appétit is now offering greener, sustainable options for your to-go meals. We have replaced the plastic disposable containers with compostable paper ones. Also, if you take your meals out on a regular basis, you can purchase a reusable container for a one-time fee of $6, and exchange it for a new one each time you come in. This is how it works: we’ll take the used one you bring in (you don’t even have to clean it!) and we’ll give you a new clean one to take home. Then you bring that one back, and we’ll do it again. The containers are microwave and dishwasher safe. There are several kinds, but they are all interchangeable. Containers are purchased and returned at South Congress Market, but we hope to expand it to Hunt Hall soon.
