If there is one thing that is good about the discovery of some scientists that the world is slowly dying, it has to be the fact that it urged a lot of people to go green in everything that they do. Thankfully, this also urged a lot of caterers to get involved in green catering. However, some caterers tend to believe the misconception that green catering is just about serving organically prepared food. Here are other green catering facts that all caterers and even organizers should be aware of.
Green catering is also about using bio sensible utensils and kitchen materials. Caterers should serve utensils that are made of biodegradable materials such as cornstarch and sugar. Aside from saving the environment by not using harmful dishwashing liquids, biodegradable utensils can also be used as fertilizers. As of now, there are lots of plates, spoons, forks and knives that are made out of biodegradable materials so finding one is not really that difficult.
When it comes to cleaning up the area, caterers should make sure that the detergents, dishwashing liquids and other cleaning chemicals that they will use should be eco-friendly. Nowadays, it´s not that hard to find eco-friendly cleaning materials. It is really up to the caterers if they want to stick with green catering. Caterers should also consider using biodiesel fuel on their delivery vans and trucks.
One great thing about doing green catering is that it can help caterers build up a solid clientele. Since more and more people are into saving the environment, the demand for green caterers is at an all time high. Even big companies are beginning to get into green catering. Since the big companies are getting involved in green catering, chances are, the small companies are following in their footsteps as well which means more clients for caterers who are into green catering.
Green catering is the best way to give back to the environment without having to compromise a business. Caterers should take advantage of this catering option since they have nothing to lose and have so much to gain.
