There are a few services in Toronto already doing this! Customers borrow the container and return it when they’re done, like a library. 

Some take a refundable deposit, others have an app and you only pay if you don’t return it.  

There are already a few places around the world where restaurants over a certain size are required to offer a reusable take-out option. This list includes: Germany (Jan 2023), and Netherlands (July)

A&W and Tim Horton’s have reusable cup pilot projects on the go in Vancouver as well.

These companies provide rentals for events and restaurants around Toronto right now:

  • Suppli
  • Muuse
  • Friendlier
  • Inwit
