East of Seymour Zero Waste Takeout


A reusable takeout container system is finally here! 

The demand for takeout has exploded during the pandemic, and our oceans are paying the price. Ocean Ambassadors has partnered with a local company called Reusables.com to bring a community-wide container and cup-share system to the North Shore to tackle the problem of single-use takeout waste.

Starting October 18th, residents in the East of Seymour community will be able to enjoy their takeout meals and drinks in reusable containers and to-go mugs from Deep Cove, Dollarton Village and Parkgate Village shopping areas. This community will be the first in Canada where all restaurants and cafés offer takeout in reusable containers.
