Our Green Mission
We feel it’s our responsibility to take a close look at our impact on the environment and do our part to protect our planet and the Chicago community. Blue Plate doesn't just "go green" but actually lives green, everyday.On average, we have 150 lbs of food waste per day - that’s 27 tons a year! Instead of taking up space in a landfill, these leftovers will be recycled into fertilizers for city parks.
Over the next 4 months, we will have recycled enough to fill a dumpster the length of 30 football fields.
A variety of items enter our kitchen on a daily basis, but only 4 things end up in a landfill: plastic wrap, tape, gloves and solid items that accompany food, such as aluminum foil. The rest is recycled or composted!
Fired up? There’s more to come. And we’d love offer you our support. Ask us how we can help you design an event you can feel good about.Plan a Green Event
