Connecting the dots to divert utensil waste


Living both a healthy and sustainable lifestyle can be expensive and inconvenient. It's no wonder why single-use plastics have infiltrated every moment of our days.

Borrowed Good aims to solve this challenge, starting first with the simple eating utensil. We:

  • Provide metal washable utensils on subscription to restaurants for takeout use
  • Place deposit boxes at places convenient to your daily life, such as your train stop and grocery store
  • Collect dirty utensils from deposit locations
  • Wash and redistribute to restaurants

Additionally, we aim to source the majority of our utensil stock through donations from closing or rebranding businesses, diverting waste directly and preventing plastic from entering the market through our service.


Bring us to your city!

Provide plastic no more

You can now offer a metal fork for that salad to go and your customers can enjoy a better eating experience; metal works better! You are also saving a plastic utensil from cluttering a landfill or poisoning our water supply--thank you!
