Green Disposable Dinnerware Guide
As more loyal customers are demanding a smaller carbon footprint from their favorite chain or local restaurant, the foodservice industry, in turn, is focusing heavily on going green. Running a sustainable and eco-friendly establishment is now, more than ever, a new standard, not just a distinguishing niche for marketing. Whether you run a takeout restaurant, concession stand, catering business, or you’re just throwing a party, it’s important to supply your customers or guests with biodegradable and compostable products. From plates and bowls to platters and trays, we have something for every market that’s devoted to going green!
Fluorescent Lighting Recycling Guide
If your food service operations are using fluorescent lighting of any kind, including the newest compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), both you and your employees should be properly recycling burned out lamps and bulbs. Disposal restrictions are becoming more strict, and for a good reason; these fluorescent lamps and bulbs contain mercury, a toxic chemical which is used to emit light. When fluorescent lamps and bulbs are recycled, the contents ( including mercury, phosphor powders, glass, and other materials) are all safely sorted out. This sorting not only creates opportunities to reuse the contents of a burned out lamp or bulb, it also substantially decreases the chances of the mercury contaminating landfills and waterways.
