Earth is the best planet—
let’s keep it that way.

Dining out? Swing by the Syracuse Cooperative Market and join our Reusable Takeout Container program for just $10! Here’s how it works:

1. Buy Reusable Takeout Container (RTC) subscription card @ The Life retail store.

2. Show your card at any stall to have your meal packaged in a fresh RTC.

3. Rinse out and return your container to our RTC receptacle located next to the Clinton St. entrance.

4. Enjoy Earth!



How do you clean the containers?

Reusable Takeout Containers are washed in our industrial dishwasher at 180 degrees. It’s as safe for you as it is for our fab planet! [earth emoji]

What happens if I forget to bring back my dirty container?

Nobody’s perfect! As long as you show your RTC card, we’ll still package your food in a fresh container. We’ll just ask that you pretty please remember to bring them both back next time.

What happens if I lose or damage my card?

Mistakes happen, and because our cards are made from 100% recycled paper, we know they’re not indestructible. Just stop by the Syracuse Cooperative Market, let them know what happened, and they’ll get you set up with a replacement card.
