We participate in the Organics Composting Program through Sustainable Princeton. All kitchen waste is composted as well as line prep ingredients (egg shells, etc) and consumer generated food waste. We estimate that between 80 to 90 percent of our waste is compostable. Despite what people often think, the cost of participating in the Organics Composting Program is cost neutral at a minimum, not more expensive. Pound for pound, we responsibly manage our waste to leave a zero footprint in our business model.
