Green Dishes – Dish Lending Program

About the Green Dishes Program

The majority of waste produced as festivals and community events comes from disposable food and beverage containers. Green Dishes is a waste-reduction project designed to eliminate the need for disposable dishes at community and campus events in the Peterborough/Nogojiwanong area.

The program operates as a dish-lending program which enables organizations to borrow large quantities of reusable dishes for community events. Organizations sign out dishes from OPIRG Peterborough and return them cleaned and washed for a small fee.

Our program includes sets of sorted cutlery (200x each), mugs and drinking glasses (200x each), large and small plates (200x each), and bowls (150x).

We appreciate all the commitment of those in the community to reducing event-generated waste by making their event eco-friendly!
