15 Nov Lux Catering and Events Celebrates America Recycles Day!
Today is national America Recycles Day, a day to spotlight a national initiative to keep America beautiful! For us at LeCroissant Catering this is an exciting day because it allows us to celebrate and highlight our company’s Green Mission that is reflected in all our business practices. 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 beautiful country we live in.
Our offices are 100% wind powered through the Blue Sky Renewable Energy Program, which means all of the electricity we use is offset by wind power energy that we purchase.
Lux Catering and Events is one of the first caterers in Utah that has an award winning, comprehensive recycling system in place. 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 and local farms. Over the course of 6 months, we will have recycled enough to fill a dumpster the length of 3o 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!
We are always looking for new and creative ideas to bring to our clients. Bringing what’s new and trendy while still maintaining our focus on the environment can be a challenge. We love recycling what’s old, making it into what’s new and trendy. Upcycling event décor has become a passion for our design team. We also offer several lines of biodegradable disposable-ware, one made from corn starch and one from sustainably harvested palm fronds.
We make it a point to work with like-minded companies that practice sustainability and exercise sustainable thinking and all in all, we are committed to a better, cleaner world for all of us.
