Concept & Backstory

Latest Consumer Trends

Most of us are aware of the evolution of the packed lunch. That’s because consumer trends indicate that more than half of the population take sustainable packaging into consideration when selecting a product.

My Personal Story

I fall into that category and I’m sure many of us do and we all know why. We’re looking at it in this picture. Even though I do my best to reduce my own carbon footprint. I still struggle because as a single mom I don’t have a strong support system in my house-hold.

When I’m tired, I do what many of us do. I ordered food from a restaurant. I love having an easy option after long days, but I feel like I traded the chore of cooking for the chore of dealing with the package.

It’s my personal journey that inspired Takeout Takeout to see if I could create a mutually beneficial support system between conscious consumers and restaurants.
