Sustainable Catering

We have taken many steps to become a leader among catering companies in New England by maintaining several sustainability initiatives.  As more information has become available about the importance of protecting our environment and preserving our natural resources, we have been inspired to take steps to limit our energy consumption, increase our recycling initiatives, and source the majority of our food products from local farms. In 2017, we were recognized as a 3 Star Green Certified Caterer by the Green Restaurant Association. We are currently the only off-premise certified green caterer in Massachusetts by the Green Restaurant Association. 

  • 100% of our lights are LEDs, which use up to 90% less energy, last longer, contain no mercury, and emit fewer greenhouse gases than incandescent bulbs. 
  • We installed high-efficiency pre-rinse sprayers at the washing station in our operations department, saving over 1,000 gallons of water per year.
  • Most of our meat and produce purchases are sourced within 100 miles of our restaurant, which encourages support of our local communities and reduces carbon emissions attributed to shipping food. 
  • Composting kitchen scraps and recycling plastics, glass, aluminum, cardboard, and paper keeps up to 80% of our waste out of landfills. 
  • Our facility is styrofoam free, which keeps harmful chemicals and litter out of our environment. 
  • Our plates, cups, cutlery, trash liners, and some take-out containers are made with bio-based materials that are certified compostable. 
  • We installed low flow aerators on our hand and prep sinks, saving enough water to fill 7 backyard swimming pools per year. 
  • We off set 20% off our annual energy use, by generating renewal energy with on-site photovoltaic cells.
  • By using occupancy sensors in our offices and restrooms, we reduce unnecessary energy use by nearly 60%.
  • In 2019, we installed solar hot water awnings to generate over 20% of our hot water.
