Heading out to dinner (al fresco, of course)? Bring your own doggie bag! This could be a reusable container from your kitchen, a collapsible bowl that’s easy to carry, or a bento box with a handle. Not only does this create one less item for the landfill, it also helps restaurants lower their expenses on disposable boxes. Just pack it up at your table and you are good to go. Bon appetit!
