How are GreenToGo containers washed and sanitized?
We are so grateful to be partnered with one of Durham’s most beloved nonprofits, TROSA, during this period of our growth. They have kindly lent use of their commercial dishwasher. We are fully-permitted by the Durham County Health Department to provide you fully sanitized containers.
