Results from Customer and Restaurant Study Available
In 2021,Cupertino's Environmental Program division partnered with a consultant to discover what Cupertino's restaurants and customers thought about single-use foodware items.
Most customers that were surveyed are very concerned about the environmental impacts of these items. They would support businesses that implemented environmentally preferable alternatives and are generally in favor of a foodware ordinance.
Food facilities survey results indicated that the cost is similar to what they are paying now and if there is technical assistance available to help offset increased costs, these managers would also widely support a foodware ordinance.
