Sustainable Event Tip #2 – Caterers Diverting Organic Waste

Sustainable Event Tip #2 - Caterers Diverting Organic Waste

Green meetings and events are a direct reflection of their supply chain and, therefore, it’s important to consider how the caterer manages their back-of-house waste during food preparation. Organic waste sent to the landfill has a larger environmental impact than if it’s diverted to a composting facility.

For instance, organic waste can take several years to decompose in landfill conditions (due to the lack of oxygen) and serve no purpose after that. On the other hand, organic waste sent to an industrial-scale composting facility can be turned into high quality compost for use in agriculture, horticulture, landscaping, and home gardening after a period of only 6 to 12 months.
