GoZero was born out of a company called Gomae Meals, where our mission was to make healthy and sustainable food more accessible! We had a mandate to deliver meals with reusable containers, thermal bags and ice packs because why not?
As we began to deliver more and more meals with this reusable system our minds wondered to ideas of expanding this system for city wide use! In the same way that Tesla began creating battery packs for other companies to use in their vehicles, which really encouraged the electric car industry to take off, we want to make a reusable container option ubiquitous wherever food is being transported.
We found that most restaurants, meals services, or anyone making food was too busy creating incredible recipes for people to enjoy that even when they tried to create a reusable container system it proved too challenging and so they would fall back into using single use items. But we believed it was not only possible, but would lead to a better meal experiment! Someone just had to champion the project and be fully committed.

I only have 3 pairs of pants: 1 pair of jeans, 1 pair of dress pants, and 1 pair of everyday black pants. High-five for minimalism 🙌🙌🙌
What is your top reusable tip you like to share with others?
I love to tell people about beeswax wraps as a reusable option to replace plastic-wrap and plastic sandwich bags in some cases. You can also make them at home!
