This month, we became the FIRST caterer in Connecticut to be Certified Green by the Green Restaurant Association (GRA)!
Before awarding the distinction, the GRA performed a comprehensive Environmental Assessment of seven categories; water efficiency, waste reduction and recycling, sustainable furnishings and building materials, sustainable food, energy, disposables, chemical and pollution reduction. They examined everything- light bulbs and recycled copy paper in our office, equipment and cleaners in the kitchen, linens and staff uniforms, the local flowers and herbs in the garden.
The green certification enhances our philosophy of using local, sustainable products and commitment to respecting the environment. The GRA helped us go above and beyond the minimum requirements to be classified as environmentally sustainable. We will continue to uphold these standards and seek new ways to save energy and lessen waste. Click here to view more detail on A Thyme to Cook’s green certification!
