This contest is now closed.
I’m just giddy about this week’s spotlight and giveaway. A few weeks ago, I came across the Website for the company, To-Go Ware. To-Go Ware makes reusable utensils self-contained in a handy little pouch that you can take along anywhere. The goal behind their products is to reduce your ecological footprint by eliminating the use of plastic throwaway utensils used in fast-food restaurants and in to-go meals. They also have a new line of stainless steel food carriers.
But that’s not all… To-Go Ware’s line of utensil pouches are made from reclaimed plastic bags and the utensils are made from the very durable and sustainable resource, bamboo. The creation of their products help employ the women of WEAVE (Women’s Education for Advancement and Empowerment), an organization of women in a Burmese refugee camp that run a business to support their self-determination and pride, provide income for their families, and highlight their incredible talent for weaving and embroidery. To-Go Ware is also supported by the work of CONSERVE, a non-governmental organization located in India that employs traditionally marginalized folks at a fair living wage and removes millions of plastic bags from New Delhi’s landfills every year. CONSERVE uses it’s profits to build schools, provide meal programs for local worker and families in need, as well as paying three to four times the local wage to the employees, to provide a better living wage and opportunity.
And now for the best part: To-Go Ware has graciously offered to give away an entire set (a $50 value!) from their line of products! One lucky repurposeful reader will win the following:
To-Go Ware 3-Tier Stainless Steel Tiffin Food Carrier
Great for salads, soup, and desserts. Comes with a stainless steel Sidekick to keep extra dressing or a small snack. Self-latching top container gives you the flexibility to pack just one or take it in its 3-tiered glory.
To-Go Ware 3-Tier Tiffin Recycled Cotton Carrier Bag
Recycled cotton bag to carry your 3-Tier Stainless Steel Food Carrier. Adjustable strap and added insulation, plus a pocket to hold your utensil set!
To-Go Ware CONSERVE Utensil Set – Newsprint
The holder for this utensil set was produced by CONSERVE and is made entirely of recycled plastic. And the newsprint style contains recycled newspaper, so you may get a scandalous headline from the gossip pages embedded in your wrap. The utensil set includes a fork, knife, spoon and chopsticks, and is made of bamboo, a highly durable resource that can be grown and harvested sustainably.
