The use of plastic and disposable containers threaten our marine, freshwater, and soil environment and potentially the safety of our entire food system1 As of 2015, 6.3 billion tonnes of plastic waste has been generated, 79% of which has ended up in landfills or the natural environment. reVessel has been at the forefront of giving consumers a better way to opt out of disposable containers and using food as a force for good. With their versatile containers designed for use in home and on the go, reVessel partners with restaurants to provide no waste meals to solve the root of the problem and help restaurants break free from dependence on plastic and disposables, cut costs and improve the health of the community.
