Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

With mixed container bins, plus three paper, box and bags bins, each Wineguys restaurant works diligently to decrease its environmental footprint. In 2018 alone, City Park Grill recycled 60,000 gallons. Roast & Toast recycled roughly 50,000 gallons. And, Palette Bistro recycled 30,000 gallons. Pretty impressive numbers for one year, wouldn’t you agree?

In coordination with Emmet County Recycling, a food scrap collection program was started at City Park Grill and Roast & Toast in 2015. Over the past four years, City Park Grill has diverted 52,363 pounds of food scrap from landfill and Roast & Toast produced 25,904 gallons of compost for the community. Palette Bistro added 11,696 gallons to the commercial food scrap collection program in 2018.

Don’t forget about all of the cardboard, a huge part of Wineguys Restaurant Group recycled products. With weekly and twice-weekly cardboard collection, Wineguys restaurants are determined to make a difference and reduce their carbon footprint.
