Highlighting Atlanta’s Green Efforts


Happy Earth Day!

Our team recently had the pleasure of working with Atlanta Recycles and the Green Foodservice Alliance to promote the first Zero Waste Zone in southeast. Zero Waste Zones are designed to reduce the environmental impact of waste in homes, workplaces and in the community. Phase One of the Zero Waste Zone focuses on the convention and dining district downtown, where more than 12 Downtown Atlanta restaurants, hotels and even the Georgia World Congress Center have pledged to recycle, reuse spent grease for the local production of biofuel and compost or donate food residuals to drastically decrease the amount of waste going to landfills. We’re proud to be a part of such an inspiring effort.
