Spreading our Environmental Efforts to the Philadelphia Region

July 15, 2013

Certified

We are very pleased to announce that our Philadelphia area kitchen in Willow Grove, PA has been awarded the prestigious 3-star Certification with the Green Restaurant Association. Not only does this make us the highest rated green caterer in Pennsylvania, it also makes us the highest rated green restaurant in the state. For details please see www.dinegreen.com.

At La Prima, we strive to be as ecologically responsible as possible and the certification from the Green Restaurant Association serves as a testament to the efforts we have made to provide our customers with eco-friendly services. We have taken innumerable steps to increase our sustainability such as running our kitchen on 100% renewable energy and transitioning to low-flow faucets through the establishment. We have worked hard to create a sustainable restaurant, and we continuously look to reduce our ecological footprint. All of our locations have been making great strides to improve their sustainability efforts and we expect all of our kitchens to gain their certifications from the Green Restaurant Association by this fall.

Some of our recent efforts include:

  • Creating company policies regarding sustainability and hold educational training to further our staff’s knowledge regarding sustainability
  • Purchasing local produce on weekly basis from our partner farm
  • Transitioning to compostable disposable products in order to reduce waste
  • Replacing power strips with smart strips reducing energy use
  • Instituting a no idle policy at all locations to reduce CO2 usage

La Prima Catering is also registered with the Maryland Green Registry – as the only green caterers in Maryland. Our special events division, Catering by Seasons is also the highest rated green caterer in Washington, DC on the Green Bride Guide vendor list.

Shawn called earlier in the week to get some more details on logistics just to make sure that everything went smoothly today. I really appreciate it! "
