Plastic free tip: always emphatically repeat you want your food FOR HERE. I LOVE Panera but so much waste :[ They recently switched out their paper pastry bags to new ones with plastic windows, too.
So. Much. Fail.
Now I’ve got a bag, napkins, plastic utensils, a plastic lined paper soup cup with plastic lid, and a paper sandwich box with a plastic window to deal with. I did ask for reusable utensils to eat with, though with the hot soup in the plastic-lined container I wasn’t really doing much better.
I need to always always ask, even for fear of being rude. Always always. This + coffee cup from yesterday (because my thermos is being used as a water bottle because someone keeps losing our reusable stainless steel water bottles)=
Anywway. Ugh. Pura blah blah blah.
