The containers cost $10, but come with a free salad on the first go-round. “I only ordered 25,” says Shawn-Marie Parent, the eponymous “Merle” (government officials thought her name was Shawn-Merle due to her father’s hard-to-read handwriting on the forms he filled out for her birth certificate), “because I wasn’t sure how well it was going to work.”
Get in line for yours now, however; she has ordered 50 the second time around, and they’re due in this week. “They’re made from corn that’s probably GMO corn,” says Parent, “which I’m morally opposed to. But it’s a good start – and it’s reusable.” This winter she plans to order reusable containers for baked goods, as well.
