The classic waste minimization hierarchy revolves around “the three Rs”—Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
We fully embrace the concept of waste minimization across the supply chain—from the way we design our products and run our operations to the end of life of products and packaging materials that we deliver to our customers.
The Darden Green Team, our group of self-selected employees who are passionate stewards and advocates of the environment, hosted a successful “Dispose-All Day” last week and with more than two tons of waste collected. The Green Team, which leads the everyday sustainability efforts for our employees, encouraged co-workers to reduce waste and reuse or recycle throughout our Restaurant Support Center (RSC). Then with Darden’s help they take it a step further and allow employees to continue these practices with items from their home at quarterly Dispose-All Day events.
