Our Mission

Doing Away with Throw Away!

We all love the convenience of takeout food, but nobody loves those single-use disposable containers. Our mission is to make it easy to enjoy waste-free takeout and skip all those disposable to-go boxes.

Reduces Waste

Throw away packaging litters oceans, piles up in landfills, and contributes greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. GO Box reduces the number of styrofoam, plastic, and cardboard takeout containers in circulation and in our landfills.

Easy to Use

Conveniently located drop sites and our free mobile app make pick ups and returns fast and easy. Get an on-site drop box for your building or office through our Corporate Program to make using GO Box even easier.

Durable, BPA-Free

GO Box containers are made from BPA-free, #5 plastic. The result is a sturdy, durable container that holds your leftovers better than any flimsy paper, plastic, or styrofoam to-go box. GO Box also snaps shut for leak-free transporting.
