  • Our Green Initiative

At Scott Café we are committed to reducing our waste footprint by continuing to look for ways we can be more eco-friendly. We currently recycle 5,000 pounds of cardboard, plastic, tin, glass and aluminum each month and 1000 gallons of cooking oil per year. We try to keep our paper and plastic use to a minimum and have switched the majority of our products to those that are made from renewable resources or easily compostable. Our dishwashing and cleaning chemicals are low phosphorus or phosphate free. In addition to having our own herb garden on property, we now compost the majority of our food waste. Our ongoing commitment to the environment includes continuing what we do as well as expanding our garden and utilizing eco-friendly paper and plastic products exclusively.
