Are you tired of throwing money away (literally) when you buy single-use serving ware for customers and employees? Would you like to reduce waste, lessen your impact on the environment, and decrease the amount of garbage you produce?

Join us May 1st for a special Clark County Green Business Morning Blend event where we will discuss HOW to ditch the disposables and embrace reusables. We will be joined by guest speakers from two companies that are changing the way businesses think about reuse— Bold Reuse and Okapi Reusables. We will also have information available from the Clark County Food Safety team for those food service businesses that are interested in learning about getting a plan approved to safely refill consumer-owned containers.­
