The University of Ottawa is proud to pilot Friendlier, a reusable container program this Summer at Première Moisson. By moving to a reusable container program, we will be saving hundreds of single-use plastic containers from the landfill. A 50 cent deposit, charged with every container meal purchase, is returned to the customer through the Friendlier App once the container has been scanned, dropped off in a return bin, and made it to the Ottawa cleaning facility - this process can take up to 2 weeks. For more information, explore the Friendlier website and Friendlier app.
