Fighting climate change and waste with reusables

Eco Lizard is a network of returnable, reusable food containers. We make it easy for restaurants, delivery platforms, and Point-of-Sale systems to offer customers the option to receive takeout and delivery without creating trash.

Co-Founders Rocky Baier and Stephen Menke love supporting local restaurants, and they (like many others) relied heavily on takeout during the pandemic. However, both became increasingly disgusted by how much waste they were producing, and they wanted a solution that could help them reduce waste in an easy way. Rocky and Stephen set out on a mission to make it easier for everyone to make a switch that reduces waste in their daily lives.

Stephen and Rocky met through Sustainable Tucson's Zero Waste Committee, and together they co-founded the Tucson Repair Cafe, a place to get broken items fixed for free. They connected over their similar views about the circular economy, local businesses, and helping the earth.
