Join Local First Arizona and Captain’s Restaurant Supply to learn more about sustainable packaging and find options that fit your business.  As awareness grows about the negative impact of everything from plastic straws to styrofoam to-go containers, your business can take positive steps to show your customers that environmentally friendly options are preferred and that you are doing your part. This event will give you the opportunity to meet manufacturers of eco-friendly packaging, focusing on items that are made from compostable materials, recyclable materials and that contain recycled content.  You’ll also be able to discuss end of life of these materials with experts who will answer all your questions about composting & recycling of materials commonly found in food service.
