Did you know that single use plastic utensils and cutlery are banned in the City of Glendale?!
Restaurants, café, and other food facilities will only provide single use cutlery and other foodware accessories upon customer request! Why?
To reduce our waste City-wide and reduce our environmental impact. Single use cutlery requires numerous resources and lot of energy to create something that is only used once. What you can do is to opt-out of cutlery when ordering food online and politely reject cutlery that’s offer. Instead, you can use the cutlery available at home or the office, or you can bring along your own reusable set.
