Today, we delivered 400 compostable containers to Maya's and Petra, 300 paper bags to Reem's Steaks, 300 paper bags to Shelby's, and 300 paper bags to Baja Cali. Both Reem's Steaks and Maya's had a tough week as they went through a robbery last Friday, so we knew we had to come out and support! In addition to the deliveries, we surveyed more restaurants for the styrofoam ordinance, and also participated in a Contra Costa School Litterati challenge!

Delivering third wave of supplies after shelter-in-place! new mission: Implementing Contra Costa Styrofoam Ban in Orinda
Almost the entire Miramonte Environmental Club showed up on Saturday February 6th to help deliver supplies for Project HEART and to talk with restaurants using styrofoam containers/cups about the Contra Costa Styrofoam Ban (Effective May 1st 2020) (See Flyer). We delivered compostable cupholders to the Library Cafe and paper bags to Maya's Mexican Grill, a small delivery but gearing up a much larger one soon. Stay tuned!
In the second wave, we delivered 1200 paper bags, 600 compostable containers, and 200 coffee cup holders to six restaurants! Let's keep it going!
We are happy to announce that we have delivered the first wave of takeout supplies! 400 takeout containers went to Petra, and 900 paper bags went to Reem's Steaks, Maya's Mexican Grill, and Baja Cali! However, we need to keep donations coming so that we can assist more restaurants!
After the first set of donations, we've ordered 900 recycled paper bags for 3 restaurants and order 400 compostable 8x8 takeout containers for Petra and Maya's Mexican Grill.
I am excited to announce that Project HEART has officially started! Let's help buy supplies for restaurants in Orinda!
We're excited to announce that Petra and Maya's Mexican Grill are both on board! They too could really use some takeout boxes and bags. Donate to support these local restaurants!
Today, July 15th, the restaurant Reem Steaks became the first restaurant officially part of the program! They need takeout boxes and bags, so let's raise some money!
In the blog, we document all activities relating to the growth of Project HEART. Posts will include the donation goals, the supplies given to restaurants, and important updates.
