Use Reusable take out containers at the Diner

14 May, 2023

Community Life is pleased to introduce reusable take out containers at the Campus Diner as part of KAUST’s sustainability efforts. Each of these reusable containers can replace at least 300 single-use disposable and can be reused for over 1000 washes.


Cost and available Sets

The O2GO® reusable containers, made in USA, adhere to the highest safety standards. They have been tested by Ecolab for 1,000 washes. They are made with 20-30% clean, recycled material. O2GO® are stackable, easy to transport, and sealed with an easy-to-use ergonomic latch.


Get your set for just a 50 SAR deposit from the Diner Cashier. The deposit can be retrieved later if you wish to return the set.


Please note that this does not include the cost of your meal.



How does this system work?

You don’t have time to clean your used container? Don’t worry, as our system lets you exchange dirty sets for clean ones after each meal as detailed below.
