Wisebox has closed
Wisebox was the first reusable takeout container program for Toronto's restaurants and cafes that provided consumers a waste-free option for takeout.
We are ever so grateful and impressed by the enthusiasm with which our Toronto community embraced Wisebox and supported efforts to make Toronto cleaner, greener and more sustainable.
It is with sadness that we announce
the end of our pilot project.
Toronto has shown that it wants and is ready to tackle the single-use disposables, and together we proved that waste-free take out is possible. While the pandemic has reshaped our realities, health professionals have reassured us of the safety of reusables, and we trust that Toronto will continue to be a leader in the reusables movement. The Wisebox pilot was a great opportunity to test the model, and the lessons learned will help us continue our work to make sustainability the norm in Toronto.
We have enormous gratitude for the forward thinking restaurant partners that worked with Wisebox to launch the first reusable takeout container program in Toronto. Please continue to show them support during these challenging times.
We look forward to continuing to work with our friends in the sustainability community towards a low-waste circular economy in new ways.
We have power.
We can use the collective power of our buying choices to cast a vote for a healthy future, and our great city, Toronto, provides many ways to show our love for planet earth. We look forward to crossing your path in those second hand shops, refill and package-free stores, and in share and repair spaces. Stay strong!
