Uber Eats and DeliverZero extend reusable packaging pilot to West Coast

Business

Uber Eats, in collaboration with DeliverZero, has expanded its reusable packaging pilots to the West Coast of the US, targeting more than 130 restaurants in the greater Los Angeles and San Francisco regions.

This initiative allows customers to choose reusable containers when ordering from participating restaurants through the Uber Eats platform.

Since its launch in New York City less than a year ago, the partnership has prevented more than 11,000 single-use containers from ending up in landfills.

DeliverZero offers a unique reusable packaging solution, reducing packaging waste from food delivery and takeout. With a network of returnable, reusable food containers, they make it easy for merchants and platforms like Uber Eats to offer customers takeout and delivery in reusable containers that can be returned easily—to participating storefronts, or by arranging a courier to collect it.

As of March 29, over 20 Los Angeles restaurant partners on Uber Eats have joined forces with DeliverZero to reduce packaging waste.

This milestone was announced at the 2024 Curbivore conference in Los Angeles, where Uber spoke alongside DeliverZero founder and CEO Lauren Sweeney, and Uber Eats restaurant partner Butcher’s Daughter.
