Save the planet, one pizza box at a time...

If you are like me, you like to order pizza. Sometimes you just feel like eating at home...so you call your local pizzeria and order it "to go".

But there is a problem. A big problem...

The biggest problem with ordering  take-out pizza is that you are left with a huge cardboard box. It's usually stained and grease covered.

If you are like me, you end up throwing it in the trash. These boxes are to soiled and dirty to do anything with so we just... throw them away...

Sure, we would compost them if we could. But as you may know, you can't really compost grease

Think for a minute if instead of throwing out your pizza box, you just washed it and put it on the shelf until the next time you ordered a pizza.

DMS Innovations has come up with a solution.

The re-usable pizza box! Instead of getting your pizza put in a card board box that will clog your local landfill, you can have a your pizza put in a Hybrid Pizza Box.

This is a box you can use again and again. Up to 500 times to be exact.

First the box is made out of high impact polystyrene. You can easily clean it with a sponge or wash cloth.  (And according to the company: at the end of their use cycle, they can be recycled into another product).

This makes lots of sense to me.

Both for the environment as well as economically. Using the pizza box will actually pay for itself.

There are a number of pizzerias already on board with this concept.

One of them Mombo's in Santa Rosa, They have been using these pizza boxes with great success.

As a matter of fact, they will give you a dollar off your pizza each time you use your re-cycled pizza box.

So you not only get great pizza but, you save money at the same time.

A bit of a warning here: don't put these boxes in the oven or your microwave.

I think this is an idea whose time has come.

I will be doing more research on this great product.

If you want to learn more, go to the Pizza Therapy Pizza Blog.

I plan on interviewing, Mike Sudia, the owner and inventor of this great product. In the meantime check out the DMS Innovations website. I'll keep you posted...

And think about using a re-cycled pizza box next time you order a take out pizza.

Remember: "The life of a traditional pizza cardboard box has a one time one purpose."

But a recyclable pizza box can be used again and again.

I would love to hear your opinion on the concept of re-usable pizza boxes.

The planet you save, could be your own!

Great question, Becky. The key would be to have 2 hybrid pizza boxes. One is stored at the pizzeria. and the other is kept at home. When the delivery guy shows up you keep the pizza in the hyrid pizza box he brought you just switch boxes.

Heating it? You really can't use the hybrid pizza box. You can use a cookie sheet.  Cleaning? You can clean them with soap and hot water... Mombo's Pizzeria has really embraced this. Here's the story: http://mombospizza.com/index.php?id=specials

How do you have pizza delivered in this if you have it at home? Also if you can not heat this how can you really clean it? We just put our pizza boxes in the recycle bin.

Too cool, Albert. I had no idea this existed, but I guess it was only a matter of time! I do bring my own tupperware to restaurants sometimes (which you can read about in my Little Things I Do For the Sake of the Environment list!), so I would definitely be open to bringing one of these in for take-out pizza.  Thanks for the heads up on these! :)

About this topic

Wiki

The Hybrid Pizza Box, HPB, is used for take-out or delivery of pizza by customers.

Not only reduce your carbon footprint -but get a better quality pizza?
A reusable box can eliminate over 125 pounds of one-time use cardboard.
Our multi-use box is made in the U.S.A. and recyclable at their end of life.

The Hybrid Pizza Box has similiar heat retention qualities to a traditional cardboard box without the disposal hassle.
