“Many meal delivery services contain an excess of disposable waste and plastic,” said Megan Scott, one of the co-founders of Planted Table, a meal delivery service. “Planted Table is the only service we know of that uses glass containers and is committed to 100 percent vegan and zero waste.”
“I don’t think a reduction of food waste gives you that much clout to stand on when a customer’s trash can is loaded with plastic after creating a meal,” said Megan Scott, who co-founded a zero-waste meal service called Planted Table with her sister, Chef Lauren Mahlke. Planted Table delivers prepared meals to the San Francisco Bay Area in a model that functions just like any other meal-delivery service, minus the trash. “Food can be composted and isn’t creating the toxic problems to our environment that plastic is,” she said. Planted Table delivers customers local food from nearby farms packaged in glass containers and a reusable cooler that gets picked up every week and refilled.
