Green Commercial Kitchen Giveaway When I eat in a restaurant (which is more often than I'd like to admit) I always worry about the waste of it all. In a commercial kitchen, does anyone care about teaching the staffhealthy andenvironmentally-friendly ways to do their jobs? Do they purchase recycled paper products? Do they clean with safe cleaners? Do they give any thought to water conservation? The answer, according to my restaurant manager husband, is more often than not a resounding "No." People who make those kinds of decisions are usually so busy keeping up with the daily demands of running the place that they couldn't possibly fit in a moment to research these things. Also, for every restaurant owner the bottom line is MONEY, and since we are constantly told that "going green" is expensive (not true) they don't bother to look into it.
But there is actually a company who can do all of the legwork for you, and you'll be saving money and the planet at the same time:
"FoodServiceWarehouse.com is a Greenwood Village, Colorado company that was started by a group of avid environmentalists. Our commitment to the environment can be seen from the environmentally conscious way that we run our own company and the programs we have developed to help the restaurant industry become more environmentally responsible.
As part of our services, we have created an industry leading certification program aimed at helping commercial kitchens cope with the costs and complexities of going green. The program features educational resources, rewards and the industry’s only free certification process, modeled after, and fulfilling credits for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification.
And to show our dedication in helping commercial kitchens slash energy costs, conserve water and reduce their environmental impact, we are giving away a green commercial kitchen worth up to $40,000 to one qualifying kitchen."
