ReThink Disposable is uniting with Middletown Public Schools for Zero-Trash School Meals!

Clean Water Fund’s ReThink Disposable program is working in Connecticut with the City of Middletown and Sustainable CT to transition all ten Middletown public schools to 100% reusable foodware and enhance Middletown’s profile as a leader in sustainability. We are thrilled to be partnering with Middletown schools to green their food operations!

The Reality of Reusable Plastics

The “correct” use of melamine foodware requires that the dish not be heated above 160 degrees. When food is served on melamine plates there is relatively low cross contamination from the plate to the food. However, once you put that plate in the microwave, you’re immediately pushing past that safety zone.
