Although we have been committed to sustainable practices for 20+ years now, we decided it was time to be certified!
The Green Dining Alliance (GDA) works with restaurants in the St. Louis area to reduce their environmental impact. An audit is done to evaluate "reducing, recycling, and composting restaurant waste; operating facilities with efficiency; and sourcing sustainable food, to-go ware, and cleaning supplies."
Here's what the GDA had to say about us:
"Sustainability is part of the culture at Big Sky Café. After long conversations with wait staff, the owner, managers, and kitchen staff, they decided it was in line with their mission to move to compostable straws, and to only offer them on request. The whole staff is engaged with their environmental mission, from servers, who learn about the local farms their menu items are crafted from, to their kitchen staff, who waste nothing – creating masterpieces out of scraps and composting the rest."
