How does the MEP work?
Participate in the M’Porte Exchange Program by purchasing a container from us below, or join at any of our participating restaurants.
Simply order zero waste takeout from an MEP restaurant - and they will exchange the one you purchased for a new one that has been pre-cleaned and sanitized.
Take the food home in a reusable to-go container.
Rinse with water once you’ve finished the meal (get rid of the food bits).
Return the container to any participating restaurant to exchange for a pre-cleaned and sanitized one for your next meal.
Receive a 25 cent discount on every to-go order when using an M’Porte container.
Celebrate! You just avoided single use plastic!
Jen Grove, CEO of the Del Mar Village Association
“Del Mar Village Association is in full support of the M’Porte Exchange Program, and we look forward to growing the network of participating restaurants and reducing our city’s waste. M’Porte has an innovative solution to the increasingly relevant issue of plastic pollution and single use waste at restaurants”
Charles Koll, Owner of Viewpoint Brewing Co.
“As a business, Viewpoint is always trying to find the balance between meeting guest expectations, profitability, and ethical responsibility. The M’Porte Exchange Program (MEP) is wonderful because it truly has found the balance. Now we are able to provide our guests with delicious meals in reusable containers all while saving money and the environment”
