San Francisco

Our CTO grew up in the S.F. area and still has lots of family there, so we made it our second city! Also, it was the ideal choice given its strong food culture and commitment to environmental protection.

Why We Are Here

We all order take-out food, whether it's delivered or we pick it up ourselves. With the COVID crisis, that has been the only option. But with each bag of plastic containers dropped at our doors, the planet incurs more damage to its long-term health – and ours. By making restaurant sustainability practices transparent and highlighting those making environmentally friendly choices, we empower consumers to reward businesses that do the right thing. We discovered that many materials that sound good are actually worsening the problem. "Compostable" usually signals a need for industrial treatments that aren't available in Los Angeles, and bio-plastics marketed as plant-based are worse for the environment because they easily contaminate batches of recyclable plastic. San Francisco is one of the few areas with access to industrial composting, giving you a local advantage. But we believe that making it easier to continue the frequent use of single-use plastic is ultimately harmful to us all. While these products can be processed within the city's service area, many times they are transported and used out of the area where they simply end up being landfilled – or worse. You have the power here. It's your reviews and restaurant choices that will reveal good and bad practices ‒ and reward those making the extra effort to protect our health. We built a simple process for you to provide a few details about your takeout order so our algorithm can assign a score we all benefit from. Thank you very much for being a JYBEr.

Looking For Ambassadors

Will you help us launch in your city?

We rely on people who share our concern for the environment to help us launch in new regions. JYBE is built on user-generated reviews that come from individuals ordering a variety of meals from restaurants across their city.
