We Compost Restaurants

We would like to commend the following We Compost partner restaurants for participating in a commercial compost program and being a leader in moving us towards a more sustainable world. Please show these restaurants your support!

This program is made possible through the generosity of The Searle Funds at The Chicago Community Trust.

 

Gold Partner

Gold Partner businesses demonstrate the highest level of commitment to food scrap diversion by composting both pre-consumer and post-consumer food scrap. These businesses compost all kitchen trimmings during food preparation AND compost leftover plate scraps after a dish is cleared from the table. These businesses may additionally endeavor to analyze their food supply versus waste and modify procedures to reduce food waste by ordering less or differently.
