Jake's Place has been transitioning towards a more environmentally friendly take-home experience. Plastic bags are gone; replaced by paper. All styrofoam / polystyrene containers and cups have been changed to either paper, cardboard, foil, or recyclable microwave-safe containers for our meals.
We would like to remove the plastic straws as well; however, we have not yet found a suitable replacement that does not taste like soggy paper. Please let your server know if you would prefer to sip directly from the cup without a straw.
Wherever possible, we choose items that are:
Manufactured from renewable resources;
Contain biodegradable materials;
Easily recycled; or
In every case, we have found the more environmentally-friendly packaging to be more expensive (sometimes even double the price!), but we want to do our part for future generations.
