Bring your own box to the restaurant
I'm helping Valerie Melville with a book she's writing on how to live more ecologically. In one section she suggested bringing a paper bag to the restaurant for your leftovers. Gooey city! I wrote her back that it makes more sense to bring a re-usable plastic box that can go in the refrigerator or freezer, and then get washed after you've eaten the food. She agreed. If you agree, bring a plastic box with you next time you go to a restaurant and use it to bring home leftovers, instead of taking a disposable container for your food.
