Over the past several years, Reel Chefs Catering has invested in successful sustainability-related research and practices. We developed our own sustainability strategy and established an educational system with our team members to keep them informed of all the new ways to improve our contribution to full Global environment conservation. We are now working to identify and spread sustainable best practices throughout everyone that eats with us, by that creating a large consciousness. We’re also partnering with our suppliers and key stakeholders to protect resource availability and create long-term value through innovative approaches to ecosystem conservation and enhancement.

Team Education to practice sustainability
The front line of an environmental initiative is to recycle the majority of waste. From our production facility to your event, we recycle all acceptable plastics, tin, glass, paper, and cardboard. Most of our organic waste from food preparation is composted locally and turned into nutrient-rich fertilizer.
Cooking Oil Recycling and turned into quality BQ9000 biodiesel
by SeQuential Pacific Biodiesel.
Buying Local this truly sustainable approach benefits local farming activities and supports the greening of communities, both environmentally and economically. The biodiesel refined from these local sources is a cleaner burning, renewable fuel that meets or exceeds rigorous U.S. ASTM specifications.
We offer the option of replacing traditional plastic and paper food containers and utensils with all-natural fiber packaging. Made from renewable resources such as sugar cane pulp, fallen leaves, and bamboo, they are compostable. Because they are unbleached, they are free from chlorine and dioxin.
From linens to glassware we are committed to providing re-usable equipment as much as possible. We have a long-standing relationship with New System Laundry, which shares our values and approach to business.
Green Cleaning and Sanitation
We are committed to a “green” operation…even in the dish room! Our cleaning products contain no dyes or phosphates, but more importantly, they do not release Volatile Organic Compounds into the air you breathe—pollutants that have been linked in numerous studies to increased asthma and allergy rates. All cleaners are free of perfumes and are 100% plant-based. We proudly use Auto-Chlor’s Green Clean product line.
We also use Young Living Essential Oils to cook and disinfect our kitchens and utensils.
