Researchers at Eckerd College (Saint Petersburg, Florida) developed a reusable to-go system and container prototype called “Eco-Clamshell” via a $32,000 grant from the Environmental Research and Education Foundation (EREF). The project was led by Alison Ormsby, Associate Professor of Environmental Studies, and Audrey Copeland, Grant Research and Coordinator. The program has since been adopted by more than 400 colleges/universities while the container has seen design improvements by G.E.T. Enterprises under the name Eco-Takeouts™.
