Yes, we’re in Boulder and happy to say that the majority of our summer events are waste free, because of things like compostable dinnerware and compost bins that helps create a waste stream that encourages people to go green, but we know that there are many more of your out there that also believe in going green and putting forth efforts to help save our planet. We created our Eco-Friendly Specialty Shop so you can learn more about our go green products, but wanted to highlight some of our favorite categories below.
For those looking to host waste free events, compostable dinnerware is a must. Consumers aren’t expecting to carry around glass or melamine dinnerware, but do expect to have their event eats served up on a durable plate or bowl that can easily be thrown out. Forget the styrofoam and stick with compostable friendly dinnerware.
Automatic hand dryers are a great way to go green while saving money. With automatic hand dryers there’s no need for paper towels (that constantly need to be restocked) and they use far less energy than similar hand dryers that continuously run.
The thing with cleaning solutions and agents is that you’re stuck breathing in chemicals that are potentially harmful. Eco-friendly cleaners are safer for you and they work to save the planet by encouraging you to use the same smaller plastic bottle over and over – less plastic in the landfills. And to add to the benefits of eco-friendly cleaners, you don’t have to worry about losing cleaning power; in fact, many commercial and residential users boast about getting a better clean than traditional cleaners.
Speaking of green events, recycle and compost bins are perfect for helping the crowds know where to stash their waste. They’re also great in the kitchen for helping to remember where waste items should go. And it also helps guide waste streams correctly to the recycling facility.
Much like the automatic hand dryers, efficient faucets work to save you money while lending to making your establishment greener. You’ve seen these faucets in hundreds of places – a simple wave of your hand activates them – but if you don’t have them in your own restaurant you should definitely look into getting your hands on some.
