How do I return the BringBack bowl?

You can return the BringBack bowl in the drop off bins located at any participating location listed above. Follow the instructions on the drop-off bin to confirm your return within the Just Salad App.

Where is your BringBack program available?

BringBack is currently available at 10 Just Salad locations listed above. We’re actively looking to expand this pilot, so look out for additional stores coming soon.

Should I clean my bowl before returning it?

No need! We professionally wash + sanitize each bowl on-site.

How are your bowls cleaned?

Our teammates are trained to professionally clean and sanitize each bowl in accordance with health codes that apply to all types of reusable and dine-in containers.

Are reusables safe?

Yes! Global health experts have stated that reusables are safe to use. Read their statement here.

Can I keep my green returnable bowl?

The green BringBack bowl should be returned to the drop-off bin after use. If you would like to own a bowl to use for ordering in-store, you can purchase a blue reusable bowl for just $1.

How does the BringBack Bowl differ from the Just Salad Reusable Bowl?

There are a few differences:

  • BringBack Bowl allows you to place an app order for pickup in a green returnable bowl. You’ll return this bowl when you’re ready to pick up your next order. We’ll take care of the cleaning.
  • The Reusable Bowl applies to orders placed in-store. You'll purchase a bowl at any Just Salad location and receive a free topping (like avocado) with every reuse. This bowl is yours to keep and can only be used in-store.

What are the environmental benefits of the BringBack program?

A third-party lifecycle assessment of the BringBack program, conducted by the New York State Pollution Prevention Institute, concluded that the BringBack bowl has less global warming impacts than a disposable fiber bowl after just two uses, on average. Read the summary findings here.
