Bay Area Recycling Outreach Coalition (BayROC) Reuse To Go Campaign and the bambu Spork
We have long admired the great work of our friends at Bay Area Recycling. Founded in 1996, the Bay Area Recycling Outreach Coalition (BayROC) is a collaboration between staff representing over 40 San Francisco Bay Area cities, counties and other public agencies working together on waste reduction. They remind us that a small amount of effort will make a big difference, and encourage us all to reuse our bottles, straws, containers, bags and eating utensils to prevent waste. At bambu®, we couldn’t agree more.
BayROC provides vast information on important environmental topics like reducing food waste, stopping junk mail and purchasing recycled products. Their most recent campaign is Reuse To Go and we think it’s inspiring. Their Zero-waste Reuse to Go Kit (valued at over $160) makes it pretty motivating too. For a chance to win it, just take the pledge to continue your efforts to reduce your trash footprint and commit to taking new actions too.

The Zero-waste Reuse to Go Kit includes some great eco-friendly products, including the bambu® Spork & Cork. Sporks have always been one of our best-selling items, and the spork travel kit includes a durable and washable protective sleeve made from sustainable cork. It feels like smooth leather and stylishly protects your spork for its next use. Hand-shaped from a single piece of certified organic bamboo, Sporks are the ultimate lightweight, all-in-one reusable eating utensil. Keep one handy and say no to plastic utensils!
Did you know that it takes 1,000 years for a plastic bag to breakdown? This kind of disposable trash obviously has a huge impact on the environment when simply taking a reusable bag shopping with you is so easy to do. Please remember, every single step you take to reduce waste matters. The Bay Area Recycling Outreach Coalition (BayROC) has a long list of unique ideas to get you started and spark your creativity.
So, go ahead. Take the pledge!
