Sustainability

Picnic Time Productions is proud to be a Bay Area Certified Green Business. We are because sustainability is so important for us, our clients and the world in which we live.

Here are just a few of the ways we are providing eco-friendly catering (otherwise known as “green catering” or “sustainable catering”):

Events

  • Local foods: We use as many locally produced products and locally grown or raised foods as possible.
  • We provide organic foods to those clients who so desire and order them.
  • Dinnerware is clients’ choice of re-usable, recyclable, biodegradable and/or compostable. NO Styro.
  • We provide beverages and condiments in bulk where appropriate (and allowed by client.)
  • Recycle bins are provided for your staffed event.
  • Leftover food from events is donated to local shelters or the St. Vincent de Paul Dining Room.

Facility and Operations

  • We recycle all glass, cardboard, metal and plastic containers.
  • We re-use or recycle all boxes that are delivered to our facility.
  • We participate in Waste Management’s food waste recycling program.
  • We recycle all of our cooking grease.
  • We installed new warehouse and kitchen energy-efficient lighting, digital thermostats, timer switches on remote warehouse areas, and installed CFLS for all sockets.
  • We installed flow restrictors on all faucets and changed all toilets to low flow, 1.6 gallon.
  • Dishwashing detergent is bio-degradable.
  • Office paper and paper towels are recycled paper.
