Culinary Green Curriculum

In a program this big, small changes make a huge difference!

  • All the tasting spoons we use are made from potatoes and are biodegradable
  • We love our Cryovac® Machine:  a food saver machine that helps us cut down on waste
  • The hand sinks all have motion sensors and low-flow faucets
  • We use re-usable containers instead of plastic wrap or aluminum foil and bake with Silpat® mats instead of parchment paper
  • We only serve fair trade coffee in the Tartan Bistro
