Future You - Episode 62
Posted by Tim
Two schools of thought on leftovers.
The hard part about option 2 is remembering to BYO-RC (Reusable Container - aka doggy bag)
A possible way to remember BYO-RC before leaving for a restaurant could be whistling the song “Don’t know much about history…(Sam Cooke’s ‘Wonderful World’) while envisioning Bluto’s shoving in pockets approach to taking cafeteria leftovers from ‘Animal House.’
To help you ‘Take leftovers home in a reusable container,’’ here’s a simple 2-step process:
Your Future You feels seen and appreciated when you ‘think ahead,’ like when you plan to bring an RC to a restaurant with you in order to ‘Take leftovers home in a reusable container’. I think the message will be something like - “what a wonderful world this will be…”
P.S. - It’s been reported that Corporate Housing Companies help you ‘Take Leftovers home in a reusable container’ by not only providing the leftover refrigerator capacity (via full-sized kitchens: a MUST for monthly rentals), but also by writing blog posts that encourage our guests to ‘think BYO-RC before they dine’ so our guests can indulge, save money and avoid leftover-pizza-filled-pockets.
. Why does this ‘Future You’ Series exist? What’s it about?
In order to make sure you finish your leftovers, you have to take them home first. At least, from a restaurant. Instead of taking the plastic (or often Styrofoam) to-go containers restaurants provide, bring your own glass or stainless steel ones. These are reusable and won't end up in landfills.
