Leftovers when eating out.

A friend of mine told me about her coworker who takes a container with her when she goes out for dinner. That way when she has leftovers she just puts them in her container rather than in the styrofoam provided by the restaurant. I thought that was a splendid tip worth passing on. Do you have any good tips when eating out or carryout?

That's just one more way to live as green as possible...I don't eat out that much...but it's good to know...

That is a great idea... not much different from bringing your own mug when you go get coffee.

In Italy it is uncommon to bring the leftovers home and people just drink their espressos in the coffee bar, so there are not as many take out containers and cups.
