Why Zero?

New Yorkers throw away almost a billion takeout containers every year.

Let's fix this. 

 

 

DeliverZero containers are reusable over 1,000 times.

That eliminates the emissions and waste from over 1,000 manufacturing processes.

Even recycling generates untenable emissons — it uses 67% of the energy of virgin-material manufacturing — because of the demands of processing and re-manufacturing. Only a reuse system like DeliverZero eliminates all downstream production emissions. 

Reuse also saves tremendous transportation energy. Single-use containers travel long distances from factory to restaurant to customer to dump. DeliverZero containers circulate locally among restaurants and diners, usually just within one neighborhood.

DeliverZero containers are certified by NSF International.

NSF is the independent public-health organization that certifies the cooking equipment used by restaurant kitchens.

Look for the NSF logo on DeliverZero containers. Or look up our containers on NSF's website, under manufacturer G.E.T. Enterprises, Inc., products EC-07-1, EC-11-1, and EC-13-1.
