In its annual Environmental Sustainability Report, Just Salad announced new steps to eliminate waste from fast-casual dining and support the Circular Economy. 

  • Announced a partnership with research scientists at the University of Pennsylvania, Tulane University + Harvard University to study the effects of its carbon labels on consumer behavior

  • Provided a preliminary carbon footprint comparison of the Reusable Bowl versus disposable bowls, estimating that the environmental benefits of the Reusable Bowl vs. a disposable bowl are achieved after as few as four uses

  • Estimated waste prevention from its REDUCE & REUSE programs apart from the Reusable Bowl -- including Utensil Reduction, Bagless Pickup & Checkout, and Bag Size Reduction -- to be 50,000 pounds annually

  • Called on policymakers + customers to support its efforts to accelerate the transition to a net-zero world, following the exponential roadmap framework
  • Reiterated the waste management challenges posed by disposable gloves

  • Outlined new supplier standards related to packaging sustainability

  • Discussed its efforts to cut energy usage by 25% or more by partnering with Budderfly, an Energy Efficiency as a Service provider
