    Borrowed Good

    The disposable lifestyle is a hallmark of American culture, with many products designed for a single use. This mindset has resulted in devastating environmental and health issues. Borrowed Good is a scalable, systems-approach to reducing consumer waste, starting with disposable utensils. It proposes a community-based system of reuse to fulfill user needs while on the go without wasteful impact. Borrowed Good sources no-longer-used metal utensils to provide low-cost metal utensil subscriptions to restaurants for customer takeout use and convenient disposal locations for customers along daily routes, then collect, wash, and redistributed our reused utensil stock for a truly sustainable solution.
