Following are a set of P2 options you may wish to implement. No option is perfect for everyone, but sometimes options that have worked at one facility can work at yours. They might also serve as inspiration.

Reviewed Food Processing/Rendering - Dining Options

Options below have reviewed by pollution prevention specialists. They are commonly recommended and implemented for facilities.

Use reusable tableware
Use durable, permanent tableware instead of disposables.
Reduce straw use
Minimize the use of straws.
Use non-disposable glasses
Offer foundation beverages in glasses, not disposable cups.
Choose durable menus
Choose durable menus rather than disposable paper ones. If you prefer paper, use those made of recycled-content paper and note it with the "chasing arrows" logo signifying recycled-content paper; your customers will appreciate it.
Take-out containers
When possible, choose take-out containers made of recycle or degradable material.
Disposing of plastic containers
Before disposing of recyclable plastic containers, remove lids to facilitate recycling.
Use refillable pens
Purchase refillable cartridge pens and mechanical pencils instead of disposable one.
