Founder, Ryan Falkner, on the inspiration behind Portal.

Portal began in early 2019 in NYC with several pop up events at Smorgasburg's food halls and other spaces. Our goal was to create awareness around reusable products and test people and vendors willingness to try them out. In the process we saved over 2,600 single-use disposable plates and bowls from trash bins. 

Now, we are excited to roll out our Portal Bowl and Portal Swap system in an effort to scale the use of reusables with take-out and delivery markets.
