Our Mission

Doing Away with Throw Away!

Enjoying freshly prepared takeout shouldn’t come with a side of environmentally harmful packaging. Our mission at GO Box is to make it easy and fun to order takeout sustainably and eliminate the need for single use disposable containers.

Reduces Waste

Throw away packaging litters oceans, piles up in landfills, and contributes greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. GO Box reduces the number of styrofoam, plastic, and cardboard takeout containers in circulation and in our landfills.

Easy to Use

Conveniently located drop sites and our free mobile app make pick ups and returns fast and easy. Get an on-site drop box for your building or office through our Corporate Program to make using GO Box even easier.

Durable & Safe

GO Box containers are made from BPA and BPS free #5 plastic and durable enough to be reused up to 1,000x! Each container is thoroughly cleaned in a commercial kitchen to sanitize them before their next use.

Our Team

Jocelyn Gaudi Quarrell

GO Box Owner and CEO

Jocelyn has built her career working to develop and implement sustainable solutions in urban environments. After graduating from St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas, Jocelyn moved to Boston, MA where she became interested in transportation and how people move through dense city streets and sidewalks. Her commitment to commuting by bicycle led to a cross country move to Portland, Oregon in 2010. That year, Jocelyn began working with a start up called Alta Bicycle Share. At Alta, Jocelyn helped to launch and operate bike share systems in Washington, DC, Boston, Chattanooga, New York City, Chicago and San Francisco.

Jocelyn acquired GO Box in June 2018 with a focus to grow the system throughout Portland and in communities across the U.S. She’s excited to be learning about trash or, more specifically, how trash can be mitigated. In her free time, Jocelyn enjoys off road cycling, camping, and implementing low waste strategies into daily life. She and her husband, Danny, live with Bruno the dog and Birdie the cat in North Portland.


Grey Diation

Operations Specialist

Grey uses bicycles as a means of sustainable transportation, adventure and as a bridge to connect to their community. Most recently they moved to Portland after a year of traveling across Europe on their first solo bike tour. You can find them playing music, shooting film and creating art about transitions and balance when they’re not balancing on two wheels and steel.


Nate Martin

Operations Specialist

Nate moved to Portland in 2007, and shortly afterward discovered cycling as a way of life. He grew up in Salt Lake City, UT, where he learned to love the mountain forests and southern deserts, and he loves living near the rain forests of the Pacific Northwest. Nate recently graduated from Reed College with a BA in English Literature. Bike camping, Aikido, and pinball are a few of his favorite things.
