A2R3 Reusable Container Pilot

During A2ZERO Week, OSI partnered with four local restaurants to launch the Ann Arbor Reduce, Reuse, Return (A2R3) Reusable Container Pilot Program. ​​This program aims to reduce the amount of waste produced by restaurants in our community by providing restaurant patrons with reusable take-out containers. For the month of June, select dishes in take-out and delivery orders from the four participating restaurants will be served in these reusable containers. If you receive a meal in one of these containers, simply wash the container and return it to a participating restaurant in order to receive a discount on a future order!​​​ Following the end of the pilot program, which runs the entirety of June, feedback from the restaurants and customers will be used to build upon and reshape this program into a permanent fixture of our community!​
