Currently, almost a 1/3 of the waste produced in America comes from packaging. 

Eco Agents, a nonprofit organization created to defend and protect the Amazon Rainforest has coined a new term to do just that; Eco-To-Go.  They are encouraging people to request less packaging when they order take out, and have started contacting take-out services, delis, restaurant owners and employees  informing them about the new phrase.   

The way it works is, when you call in and request your order, say you want it "Eco-To-Go," the restaurant will then only give you one napkin and leave out any plastic utensils.  Because really, when was the last time you brought back food to your place and used the cheap plastic utensils?
