Caring for the Environment

When you cater for thousands of people each year, you see the environmental impact of large-scale events up-close and personal! That’s why we adhere to sustainable catering and business practices whenever possible. For starters, our headquarters is 100% wind-powered through the Blue Sky Program.

This amazing company makes eco-friendly insulation out of recycled paper. We generate a substantial volume of paper waste, so Green Fiber has placed a recycle bin behind our Pleasant Grove office. We love contributing our paper to something better than a landfill! Visit them at www.greenfiber.com
