What is M'Porte?
M’Porte is a Zero Waste Takeout program empowering restaurants and customers alike to come together to tackle the common goal of reducing single use plastic.
How Does it work?
Customers are able to check in, check out, or exchange our reusable, stainless steel takeout containers at any participating restaurant.
Joining the program is only $2.99 per month, or if you’re from out of town, we have visitor options including $0.99 a day, or $1.99 for the week.
Not only do customers receive benefits like discounted meals, they also gain the peace of mind knowing they are not contributing to single plastic waste. 44% of ocean plastic is related to takeout food and drinks according to BBC.
Restaurants receive a bulk order of stainless steel reusable containers that they distribute to customers that are members of the program. And M'Porte makes sure they have enough containers at all times by monitoring the pick up & drop off data via our QR codes.
More repeat customers, and paying for less single use takeout containers that never end up recycled or composted are the biggest drivers.
The restaurants clean and sanitize the containers checked back in to their restaurant (like any normal plate), and are encouraged to provide a discount to customers that participate in the program.
Is sustainability important to your customers?
