A restaurateur’s take on environmental sustainability is a big part of his or her business’s marketing plan even it’s not intended to be.
Diners and drinkers (63% of them!) say they a more likely to visit restaurants that are environmentally conscious. So, if your business IS participating in earth-friendly activities, make sure your customers are aware. If your business is NOT participating in earthy-friendly activities, well, you may have already lost some customers.
Many food service establishments express their own interest in sustainability through the use of local food suppliers and ownership of their own farms and gardens but, research shows as much as diners appreciate farm-to-table dining, they actually are concerned more with environmental awareness through recycling and re-use.
Restaurants can adopt that earth-friendly behavior without having to sort the trash every night by using compostable products. Stout Eco Safe compostable trash bags and compostable disposables from Eco-Products and NatureHouse are all attractively-designed products that will keep customers at the local juice shop or diner to-go counter feeling confident their choices (and yours!) are doing as little damage to the environment as possible. Instawares offers entire product lines from these manufacturers at prices that won’t do damage to your budget either.
