Every year, Americans use over 40 BILLION pieces of single-use plastic cutlery. Many of these pieces of cutlery are thrown ‘away’ without being used. Learn More. By changing default settings so that plastic cutlery is provided upon REQUEST only, we can change this habit of waste.
Chipotle, McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Burger King are the new, national chain restaurants in our sights that should install an “Opt-IN for single-use plastic cutlery (and accessories)” feature on their applications to provide users with these items BY REQUEST only thereby eliminating much unnecessary waste. This includes straws, napkins, and condiments to be available by request as well.
Let’s make #CutOutCutlery be the new “normal” at national chain restaurants next. Help us today by sending an email with just 1 click to Wendys, Chipolte, Burger King, and McDonald’s to request they only provide cutlery when requested by the customer!
We convinced all four major food delivery applications, including Uber Eats, Postmates, Grubhub and most recently, DoorDash to change their default setting so that no one receives plastic cutlery unless they opt-in to request it. We advised these companies to formulate the language and the process in which customers experience a simple opt-in process for plastic cutlery. Our work is not done until all restaurants and food delivery companies comply.
Huge thanks to Buzzfeed for creating this star-studded video that leaves everyone wondering what they are actually talking about.
